Process: Kerry James Marshall
The most accomplished painter of his generation, we met with Marshall in his Chicago studio. We spoke on his strategies to circumvent institutional inequality, and his mission to diversify the cultural representations prioritized by museums and the art history canon.
Process: Michéle Lamy
We follow Michèle Lamy as she rebuilds her studio in Los Angeles. With impeccable style, she draws, fabricates, and refines an entire furniture collection in a breakneck month.
Barbara Kruger, Untitled (Questions) (1990, 2018)
In art, Barbara Kruger is known as one of the most significant voices in the 21st century. For this concise video, she spoke on what’s changed, and what’s stayed the same in the thirty years since creating Untitled, an 80-foot wall mural that raises questions about the nature of America.
Matthew Barney, Water Castings
Matthew Barney discusses the Water Castings series from his body of work, RIVER OF FUNDAMENT. Each sculpture is a relic from the process of foundry casting and shows the highly involved, fragmented performance required to produce it. Barney says it best; "its nature, both in terms of form and in terms of surface, come from the moment it's made."
Lauren Halsey: we still here, there
We worked with Halsey to co-direct this piece. Together we made an intimate short, detailing her studio–a visionary archive reflecting the diversity of everyday black cultural experiences in South Central L.A.
In this elegant moment, we view the inside of the artist studio, which happens also to be his home, as a thought-provoking atelier, built on making artwork, and ideas, from the cast-off trash of the world.
