In a new film from our Extended Play digital series, Alex Da Corte films a series of fifty-seven videos for his installation for the 57th edition of the Carnegie International in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania—combining personal narrative, art-historical references, and television characters, to create a contemporary portrait of America.
Da Corte’s parents, siblings, nieces and nephews also join him on set, helping with the painting of an enormous rose lattice inspired by his grandmother. “My family is all I have,” says the artist. “My family is everything to me.”
This is the third and final in the series of three new Art21 films premiering throughout Fall 2018.
