Mel Kendrick & Alison Saar: Directions in Sculpture

For digital streaming licenses and institutional use, please contact [email protected].

This program looks at two artists who make and show sculpture in New York. Alison Saar, whose work is seen at the Phyllis Kind Gallery and at the Brooklyn Museum, makes evocative figures covered with rusted tin, copper, tar and clay. These figures suggest a narrative history and a relationship to nature and the earth. Mel Kendrick’s imposing abstract wood and cast sculptures, at the John Weber Gallery in SOHO, allude to the human body but with a sense of decay, repair and cloning, all complex concerns of our time. Interviewed are Alison Saar, Mel Kendrick, art dealer Phyllis Kind and Peter Plagens, painter and art critic for Newsweek magazine.
