If you enjoyed Nick Cave’s work today in the As Is documentary, then check out more of his work:

Here are some great Art 21 videos about his work and this is a link to his gallery, Jack Shainman, in NYC. His website is here and, finally, here is a link to an *amazing* show he just had at Mass MOCA.

Have lovely breaks!

Art 21 documentaries

Here is a link to the Art 21 videos we spoke about today in class. You are able to scroll through the artist index and it should take you to a link to their video and information about their artwork.

Here is a link to the New York Close Up series, some of which we sampled today. This series showcases younger artists living and working in New York City.

I recommend watching all of them! They are short, inspiring and give you a great window into different artists’ studios and studio practices.

(Artists we watched today – in order are: Louise Despont, Alejandro Almanza Pereda, Diana Al-Hadid, Rashid Johnson, Kara Walker)

Enjoy!!!!!
