Artist Talk

In an attempt to understand why artists create the work they make, we decided to launch Artist Talk in September of 2008, a video series which allows the viewer to hear, from the artist, the reasons behind making each piece on exhibit.

In 2002, we produced What Were You Thinking, a 15 year catalog which asked artists to write a statement explaining the thought process behind making a specific photograph. Artist Talk continues our commitment to understanding the creative process through the words of the photographer. We hope collectors, curators and the general public will gain a better understanding about each piece on exhibit and the artist in general.
