Juxtapoz Magazine – A few weeks back, Radio Juxtapoz traveled to Tokyo, Japan for the RVCA World Tour, a 7-day takeover of the city that saw numerous art shows, signings, screenings, pop-ups occur in and around Shibuya. Obviously, our focus was the Beautiful Losers: Now & Then show, and it gave us a chance to talk with two of our favorite photographers: the talented and influential Ed and Deanna Templeton. Ed Templeton has been blazed across our memories as a legendary skater who was able to take his skate craft and create fine art and photography that has made him famous the world over. Deanna Templeton has been making these incredibly poetic projects for years, with her The Swimming Pool coming to mind first and foremost. We sat down with Ed and Deanna on a steamy hot Tokyo summer day after a day of RVCA press for the couple. Our conversation went all over: how it feels to bring the Losers back together again, what an Ed shot is versus a Deanna shot, how their longtime home base of Huntington Beach may not be inspiring them anymore and what makes Tokyo a magical place to take photos. The Radio Juxtapoz Podcast is hosted by Doug Gillen and Evan Pricco. Thank you to RVCA for their support of Episode 019 and 020 of the Radio Juxtapoz Podcast.

Juxtapoz Magazine – As part of Juxtapoz’s 25th anniversary, the magazine created a special pop-up exhibition and bookstore at the Vault by Vans store in NYC at 219 Bowery for the month of May 2019. For the takeover, Juxtapoz invited San Francisco-based textile artist, Ben Venom, famous for his unique reinterpretations of quilt-making and the reimagining of American craft art, to showcase some of his newer works for the occasion, to celebrate the spirit of originality and uniqueness that Vault by Vans represents, and the Outsider Art history of Juxtapoz Magazine. In episode 015 of the Radio Juxtapoz podcast, hosts Evan Pricco (editor, Juxtapoz Magazine) and Doug Gillen (Fifth Wall TV) sat down with Ben Venom at the Vault store in front of a gathered audience, to learn more about not only the tradition of textile and fiber arts, but how Venom was able to take a love of heavy metal, skateboarding and lowbrow culture and transcend it into a fine art practice. Vault by Vans will showcase Juxtapoz and Ben Venom’s work until early June 19, 2019, at 219 Bowery, NYC.
