THIS ART WORKS!
Series directed by Nicole Bazuin
Created/Produced by Madeleine Co. (Nicole Bazuin, Alex Hong, Cheryl Hsu)
There are artists who make pretty pictures to hang on your mantle. This Art Works! is not about those artists. A new original series for CBC Arts in partnership with OCAD University, This Art Works! is a subversively surreal showcase of provocative projects by Canadian artists tackling today’s most pressing and controversial issues. Using a variety of artistic methods (ball-gags, street signs, blanket forts, and menstrual blood just to name a few), the artists let their imaginations run wild to make art work for social change. With a supporting cast of comedians, This Art Works! fuses the wholesomeness of children’s television with an absurdist comedic bent, creating a bizarre world unlike any other.
