Radio Juxtapoz Podcast, ep 28: Town, Country and Americana with Rebecca Morgan
The Radio Juxtapoz Podcast is back, live from the back of a restaurant in Chelsea! That's where we met up with Rebecca Morgan, a few days before her latest solo show at Asya Geisberg Gallery, Town & Country, was to come down. We have been huge fans of Morgan's work for years: she was part of our Juxtapoz x Superflat museum exhibition with Takashi Murakami, been featured in our print edition and has had work in other group shows we have curated. As a professor and artist, Morgan always has an interesting perspective on not only her process of making art but a wider scope of how art can be communicated to others. Her characters are part self-reflection and almost mythical, fairy-tale-esque figures, and have a unique quality of being grotesque and salacious, comic book-like yet autobiographical.
For episode 28 of the Radio Juxtapoz Podcast, Morgan and Jux editor Evan Pricco indeed set themselves up in the backroom of Bottino on 10th Avenue on a Friday afternoon to discuss Town & Country, the widening gap between rural and urban America, growing up in Pennsylvania and Morgan's continued work in the academic world.
