Period & Style
This film was generated by the Teen Art Council (TAC) at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD). Through this program, a select group of high school students meet, research, interview, and film contemporary artists whose work is on view in the Museum galleries. The stories told through these films represent dual perspectives: both the students' and the participating artists. The students' stories are, in effect, communicated through the artists they choose to interview and the questions they choose to ask. In the spring of 2009, MCASD's TAC interviewed Australian artist Tony Schwensen, whose work was on view in MCASD's exhibition, Rising Tide: Film and Video Works from the MCA Collection, Sydney. Teen Art Council Members: Nacho Cano, Jordan Emont, Katelyn Gannon, Alex Kang, Walker LaFee, Andres Navarrete, Katie Roetker, Zack Small, Auralee Walmer. Camera: Zack Small. Editor: Nathan Gulick.
