Join best-selling author Sarah Thornton and renowned art critic and curator Robert Enright in a discussion about Thornton’s new book 33 Artists in 3 Acts

33 Artists in 3 Acts draws on hundreds of personal encounters with a superb cast of living artists—from global superstars to unheralded teachers—to humanize and demystify contemporary art. With Thornton as expert guide and trusted insider, we have unprecedented access to the lives of the artists, from late-night Skype chats with Ai Weiwei to taxi rides with Maurizio Cattelan on the way to the show that announces his death. We join Thornton as she rummages through artists’ studios and solo shows, inquiring about everything from their bank accounts to their bedrooms. The result is a series of cinematic experiences, which juxtapose artists in thought-provoking ways and build up narratives that end with epiphanies.
