Radio Juxtapoz, ep 111: Reintroducing Art History with Julien de Casabianca

Source Juxtapoz Magazine – Juxtapoz Magazine – Home 

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.”
