Radio Juxtapoz, ep 082: A Psychedelic Field Trip at the Outsider Art Fair 2022
We rarely get a chance to talk about psychedelics on the Radio Juxtapoz podcast, but we are jumping right into the ether now. In conjunction with the Outsider Art Fair 2022 and their 30th anniversary, Radio Juxtapoz sat down with Psychedelic Solution founder, Jacaeber Kastor, artist Fred Tomaselli and writer Carlo McCormick for a special conversation around the fair's exhibit, Field Trip: Psychedelic Solution, 1986-1995.
Kastor was a pivotal figure in transforming the way we look at psychedelic art, from collectability, viability and historical precedent. Through Psychedelic Solution in NYC, he brought so many psychedelic artists to prominence, from poster artists to musicians, Rick Griffin to Giger, comics to just the best trip you will ever see on canvas. Alongside Tomaselli and McCormick, the three talk about their own experiences with psychedelics, how these types of art practices have an almost folkloric history and what the OAF will present from March 3—6, 2022 at the Metropolitan Pavilion in NYC.
