Radio Juxtapoz, ep 111: Reintroducing Art History with Julien de Casabianca
There are thousands of paintings that exist in the backrooms of museums, forgotten by time but still exquisite and tell the story of a period of time. Like street art, that transforms our public spaces and reimagines the experience of city or challenges our perceptions of where art can and should exist, and what is ownership, the practice of Julien de Casabianca is perfectly linked to art history and art in the streets. As the Crystal Ship notes, where this podcast was recorded, "Casabianca takes characters from historical paintings, yanks them out of context, and ‘glues’ them onto towering walls, giving them a whole new life and often also a different meaning."
The Radio Juxtapoz podcast is hosted by FIFTH WALL TV's Doug Gillen and Juxtapoz editor, Evan Pricco. Episode 111 was recorded in April in Ostende, Belgium during The Crystal Ship Festival . Follow us on @radiojuxtapoz
