ARTS IN CONTEXT

The Thing We Are Not

  • Aired: 05/29/2015

  • Rating: NR
Across the disciplines of film, photography, painting and object making, artist Denise Prince’s work employs the commercial language of advertising to make explicit what is real or deftly, its counterpoint, fantasy. Prince's portrait on cancer survivor and apparel designer Gail Chovan is augmented by wit and made clear the pleasure with which she constructs narratives and then carefully disrupts.
