series: Arts In Context
air date: 7/24/14 7:30 PM
An art collaboration explores personal identity through destruction and recreation. By documenting well-known artists as they purposely destroy their own photographic portrait and then recover or remake it anew, TransFIGURATION explores themes surrounding authorship, cultural response amidst a historical look at performative art dating back to the Fluxus movement in the 1960s. Through the direction of portrait photographer, Rino Pizzi, this year of transfigurations will be an adventure. His enthusiasm for the process is infectious, equaled only by a childlike sense of wonder. With little or no budget to speak of, Rino convinces even the most staid Minimalist painter, to mix it up.
