"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 post-war 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 from Duchamp to Fred Wilson, and filmmakers from Scorsese to Mira Nair, are interwoven to present a coherent picture of the New York contemporary art world.
