Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

New York: States of Mind addresses the current state of 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 the relevance of postwar artworks to contemporary artistic statements. The films about New York range from the silent era through investigations of post-9/11 realities, spanning mainstream and avant-garde practice. Key works by artists and filmmakers—from Marcel Duchamp to Fred Wilson, from Martin Scorsese to Mira Nair—are interwoven to present a coherent picture of the New York contemporary art world.

Book News Annotation:

This volume accompanies the eponymous exhibit held at the House of World Cultures in Berlin, Germany, and New York City's Queens Museum of Art. The exhibit, which was curated by Merali (head of the Department of Exhibition, Film and New Media at the House of World Cultures in Berlin, Germany), displayed a wide range of visual arts, including stills from film, united only by their engagement with the Big Apple. Included alongside visuals from the exhibit are short interviews with many of the artists. Among the artists and filmmakers whose works were displayed are Marcel Duchamp, William Pope, Tehching Hsieh, Kim Jones, Helmut Newton, David LaChapelle, Ang Lee, Jim Jarmusch, Frank Capra, Woody Allen, Nick Broomfield, Martin Scorsese, Spike Lee, Brian De Palma, and Mario Van Peebles.
