In conjunction with T. J. Wilcox: In the Air, New York-based artists T. J.Wilcox and Anne Collier joined Anne and Joel Ehrenkranz curator Chrissie Iles for a discussion about this remarkable panoramic installation, and to explore what it means to make art in a saturated age of information and images. Embedded in both artists’ work is a fascination with personal narrative, and the construction of history, woven from fact, myth, memory, and associations. In this conversation, the artists discuss the role of the studio, their shared interest in the history of film, and the influence of California on their work and sensibilities.
