Afro Punk Pictures presents The Triptych, a short documentary film series that highlights the work of Faculty Sanford Biggers, along with fellow artists Wangechi Mutu, and Barron Claiborne. Live music and Q&A with the artists will follow the screening.  The screening will be held at Brooklyn Museum, Thursday, May 24, 2012 at 7 p.m.

 

The Triptych is a unique and profound documentary series profiling some of the most outspoken visual artists of our time. It highlights the work of artists Sanford Biggers, Wangechi Mutu, and Barron Claiborne. Produced by Afro-punk pictures, the documentary is itself a work of art, featuring three intimate 20-minute conversations with three bold and culturally resonant voices in art. Each monologue is a reflection of their life experience, letting the viewer discover how their observations have shaped the art they create. The first in the series features Sanford Biggers, Wangechi Mutu and Barron Claiborne — contemporaries, luminaries and friends. Spanning the artistic gamut from interdisciplinary to photography and performance, their keen reflections on the world are at once startling and insightful.
