99. Art Gallery Owner Matt Kennedy


It Makes You Feel Something

Episode 99 of The Path to Authenticity features Matt Kennedy, owner and director of Gallery 30 South, in Pasadena, California. Matt is the founder and creative director of the Panik Collective, a multi-cultural crew of anonymous artists who use pop culture iconography to make political and sociological statements.He curated the first modern survey of contemporary comic book art, called Pop Sequentialism. Matt then rebranded the Pop Sequentialism website, which includes blogs about pop culture and links related to the topics addressed there. The new Pop Sequentialism is the nexus of all things pop culture, from fine art to film, fashion and collectibles. Prior to opening his own gallery, he was the executive curator of La Luz de Jesus Gallery for almost a decade. He was also the creative director of La Luz de Jesus Press, where he oversaw the publication of about a dozen monographs and two massive survey books.

Gallery 30 South is mentioned in episode 94 of The Path to Authenticity, featuring the artist Elena Øhlander. Learn more about Matt at 20 Questions for Matt Kennedy.

The Path to Authenticity is a podcast for people looking for more from life. It focuses on emotional wellness and starts from the premise that our true power comes from our individuality. We talk to various types of writers and artists as well as therapists, coaches, teachers, entrepreneurs, and professionals of all kinds. Our guests possess one common trait. They’re people who know who they are.  We talk about what makes them who they are, how they became who they are, and how we might become truer expressions of who we are.
