Editorial Reviews

Product Description

In ART SAFARI, Art Geek Ben Lewis travels the world in search of Great Contemporary Art - and art that might be great. A playful series of eight films that are both analytical adventures and adventurous analyses.

Stopping at nothing to probe the minds of the world's most interesting, imaginative and insane artists, Ben navigates bravely through the art world s phalanxes of dealers, collectors and critics - and in the process discovers extraordinary works of art.

BONUS! A 24-page booklet with essays on each artist/episode by Ben Lewis.

Review

Part serious look at the contemporary art scene, part exposé of the pretensions that fuel it! --The Guardian

If your understanding of contemporary art begins with NO and ends with IDEA, then ART SAFARI is a good place to start. --Emily Dunn, The Age

I love to watch any documentary on art. This one was okay. I did find some of the artists a bit over weird at times. I got the feeling they were more focused on the way they wanted people to perceive them as artist physically or emotionally rather than through their work. Still very entertaining and put together nicely. Have watched a few times since purchase.

lots of fun and a view of the art world that really informs those of us who cannot directly participate, but are directly influenced by it.
