Art21 Releases New Film: “Rose Salane’s Lost & Found”
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Thursday, June 30, 2022
New York, New York – Art21 is proud to announce the premiere of “Rose Salane’s Lost & Found” on July 13 at 12:00 PM ET. The fourth 2022 release of Art21’s award-winning digital film series, New York Close Up, “Rose Salane’s Lost & Found” offers a look into the work and creative processes of the New York City-based artist.
“These objects give us a lot of information about the moment we live in,” says Rose Salane. “How do we determine something is worth something, or of some importance to a place or a person?” From a pawn shop to a genetics lab to an intuitive reader and psychic, Art21 follows artist Rose Salane as she investigates “lost” objects collected by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and other city authorities, revealing the hidden stories of New Yorkers through the things they left behind.
“Rose Salane’s research and conceptual-based approach is fundamental to her story, and I knew that longtime Art21 directors Rafael Salazar and Ava Wiland, of RAVA films, had the instincts and experience to visualize those qualities,” says Nick Ravich, Art21 Director of Video Programming and Production. “The resulting short is just the kind of real world-based, yet intellectually expansive film that for me represents Art21 filmmaking at its most responsive.”
New York Close Up (NYCU) is devoted to capturing early career artists living and working in New York City. NYCU films have been accepted and honored by over 100 film festivals, including the BlackStar and DOC NYC film festivals, as well as the Academy Awards-qualifying, Big Sky Documentary Film Festival.
