(Women's) Art For Art's Sake
13 July 2009 | by See all my reviews

The focus here is five women artists who live & work in New York (but were not born there),obviously seeking out an environment that is conducive to being creative. Three of the artists are American (Kiki Smith,Swoon & Nancy Spero),while the other two are respectively from Egypt (Ghada Amer),and Serbia (Marina Abramovic). Director Chiara Clemente takes her time with each artist,uncovering at least some secrets of their creative energies. We are treated to footage of opening night exhibits of works by each artist & the medium they work in (oil on canvas,mixed media,performance art,etc.). If you get your proverbial groove on documentaries dealing with art & artists,you owe it to yourself to seek this one out. As this is a documentary shot on video,rather than film stock,distribution will be somewhat limited.No MPAA rating,but contains a bit of rude language,and depictions of some rather sexually explicit artworks. Okay for older teens that are a bit more mature about things like these.
