New York States of Mind addresses the current state of contemporary art and film as explored by artists living and/or working in New York.
This vivid collection of artists’ interviews, film synopses and essays investigates how post-war aesthetic developments have influenced contemporary artistic statements.
The films about New York range from silent films on the creation of Manhattan to the current post-9/11 ruminations. Key works by New York greats – from Marcel Duchamp to Martin Scorsese – are interwoven to present, for the first time, a composite picture of the New York contemporary art world.
