Five new films are featured in Art21’s second wave of 2019 film programming, starting with a new film available to watch today. New films will premiere bi-weekly on Wednesdays through July 10.
In a new film from our “New York Close Up” series, sculptor Jes Fan creates elegant installation works that quietly question our most fundamental assumptions about gender, race, and identity.
“That’s what my work is about…seeing the facets of happiness and sadness all in one place.”
Raúl de Nieves
“The most toxic combination in the world is…the certainty of being right and a monopoly of power.”
“The most important part is the process. It is the actual living and doing and making.”
“Art isn’t a material, it’s not a medium—it’s not a certain product. It is the choices I’ve been able to make.”
“Drawing is like practicing the piano, because the first ones that I do often don’t come out so I have to practice.”
“Beauty is just kind of an accident. Beauty is just a happenstance. Beauty is the remainders of being a painter.”
We do all of this with your support.
