Study Movie Room
Louisiana Museum of Modern Art (Humlebæk, DK) presents:
• "ADVICE TO THE YOUNG" with Marina Abramović, Laurie Anderson, David Byrne, Jake and Dinos Chapman, Olafur Eliasson, William Kentridge, Patti Smith and Wim Wenders.
Watch, listen and soak in the words of 8 prominent artists, who have strong and diverse thoughts on what constitutes insightful advice to young artists. Serbian performance artist Marina Abramović feels that it is essential to be ready to fail. South African artist William Kentridge believes that good advice has more to do with the interaction between the person giving it and the person receiving it. Rock singer and poet Patti Smith shares the advice that writer William S. Burroughs once gave her: to build and protect your name by producing good work, and eventually the name will become its own currency. American singer David Byrne emphasizes the importance of not undervaluing your own artistic satisfaction. German film director Wim Wenders stresses that you have to do what no one else can do better than you. Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson recommends that you are sensitive to your surroundings - and British artists Dinos and Jake Chapman cut to the bone.
• "ART IS" with Marina Abramović, John Baldessari, Sophie Calle, Joan Jonas, Pipilotti Rist, Patti Smith and Bill Viola.
