If there was ever a piece of art history that Juxtapoz likes to know more about, its Outsider Art. We could always use a crash-course, a 101 if you will, on the genre and its place in what know about not only outsider cultures in general, but creating artwork with no knowledge of the structures of the art world. From the Jean Dubuffet coining the term Art Brut in the 1940s to Roger Cardinal in the 1970s bringing the term “Outsider Art” to prominence, there has been an enduring if not increasingly complicated relationship between the genre and the institutional art world. Can Outsider Art remain, well, Outsider, when shown in museums and placed into the history books?

Today on Radio Juxtapoz, we talk to gallerist and curator, Andrew Edlin, not only of his namesake gallery on the Lower East Side but the owner of the increasingly influential and popular Outsider Art Fair, taking place in NYC from January 16-19, 2020 at the Metropolitan Pavilion. We talk to Edling about the growth of the fair (not only in NYC but a Paris show as well has been going strong since 2013), how Outsider Art is properly defined, a bit of the anxious and unpredictable future of the genre as it becomes more and more enshrined in museums around the world and how Juxtapoz’s origins fit into the Outsider Art canon.

Radio Juxtapoz is hosted by Fifth Wall TV”s Doug Gillen and Juxtapoz editor, Evan Pricco.

Juxtapoz Magazine – When we look back on over 25 years of Juxtapoz Magazine, there is a huge chunk of our editorial influence that comes from underground comics and character development and how that has found its way into fine art. Alex Pardee is the perfect embodiment of this movement. A 2x cover artist (and 2x full-issue curator) has started a brand (Zerofriends), has done film and television development, made products and prints, gained an international following that rivals the biggest names in art and is an accomplished painter with exhibitions around the world. The Radio Juxtapoz team (for DesignerCon, our host was Juxtapoz editor, Evan Pricco) caught Mr Pardee at DesignerCon this past November, and in many ways, found him at a crossroads as well an entire movement at a crossroads. What is the underground? What are collectibles? What is fandom? As the Los Angeles-based artists straddles so many worlds (and his newest paintings are surreal and beautifully monster-esque reminders of his impeccable skill as a draftsman), we wanted to talk to him about not only his past and future, but how he is the ambassador of such a vital movement of collectibles and brand awareness fueling a career in art. The Radio Juxtapoz Podcast is hosted by Doug Gillen of Fifth Wall TV and Juxtapoz Editor, Evan Pricco.

032: ADD FUEL Brings Portuguese Tile Aesthetics to the World | Radio J…

Juxtapoz Magazine – We close our trilogy of Miami Art Week Radio Juxtapoz episodes with an old friend, Diogo Machado, aka ADD FUEL. After talking about the subtle aspects of daily life with Jean Jullien and identifying the self in a deeply personal conversation with Jenny Morgan, we sat down with ADD FUEL for another wide-ranging conversation about how his interest and expansion on the history of Portuguese tile works and how he has applied that to his fine art and street work practice. What we learned in the episode is not only the utilitarian and intricate craft of tile works in Portugal’s history, but how ADD FUEL’s characters and personal designs into his tile patterns is part of a long lineage of personalization of the art form. He talks about how that craft has been applied in other cultures, and how his research when doing murals has helped him localize the work. From Lisbon’s unique graffiti history to his new studio set-up, we catch an artist on the precipice of a major jump, embedded with history and yet pushing the genre forward. All Miami Art Week podcasts were supported by Vans. The Radio Juxtapoz Podcast is hosted by Doug Gillen of Fifth Wall TV and Juxtapoz Editor, Evan Pricco.
