NEW YORK, Nov 30 — The renowned global jeweller is drawing inspiration from the BBC and from artist, critic and writer John Berger, for its latest collection — a five-part video series
New Ways of Seeing will take a closer look at the changing face of contemporary art. The first episode is scripted and presented by art critic Jerry Saltz and features discussions with three artists — Kehinde Wiley, Shantell Martin, and Oliver Jeffers.
“The new film series explores how the role of art has evolved alongside our lives, and ideas in the digital world that reflect how we consume information and record our creativity today,” said Frederic Cumenal, Chief Executive Officer, Tiffany & Co.
The concept is a contemporary reimagining of seminal 1972 BBC series and academic text “Ways of Seeing,” written and presented by John Berger.
It was the first accessible show on art to put forward the concept of the male gaze and to demonstrate how context shapes our perception of any artwork we see. It also highlighted how tricks, messages and techniques used by the old masters to convey emotions are now regularly employed within visual media such as advertising.
New Ways of Seeing will expand into a five-part video series with a new episode debuting each month. Click here to see the first episode. — AFP-Relaxnews
