“how I became 100 artists.”

20 Jun


An amazing Ted talk about an artist who was frustrated with the contemporary art scene and wanted to see more accessibility and craftsmanship. He decided to create a biennale (exhibition occurring biannually) featuring artists whose work he could explain to his grandma in 5 minutes. But when he realized how much work it would be to find such artists, he decided to do the work himself. So he created 100 fictional artists with unique backstories and personalities, and then created their work. It’s amazing!

    That was so fun to watch! What a great idea. I mean, the idea in itself was creative, but then he had to create all of those works inside of it. I can’t even imagine being that involved in a project.

      I know! No idea how he came up with so many creative and different ideas. And how he isn’t famous for it.
