Metropolitan Museum of Art launches new online video series: 'The Artist Project'
Subsequent seasons will begin on June 22, September 14, and December 7, 2015; and February 29, 2016.


NEW YORK, NY.- Thomas P. Campbell, Director and CEO of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, announced today the launch of a new online video series, The Artist Project, in which 100 artists respond to works from The Met’s vast collection, which spans more than five millennia and cultures throughout the world.

Since its founding in 1870, The Met has been a place where artists go to gain inspiration from the art of their own time, and across time and cultures. Beginning this month and continuing for a year, The Artist Project will share with the public what artists see when they look at The Met. In this online series, 100 artists have been invited to choose single works of art or galleries that spark their imaginations. Viewers will encounter a diverse group of artists who share their personal, passionate ways of seeing and experiencing art.

Mr. Campbell commented: “We have spoken a lot lately about The Met’s interest in looking at contemporary art through the lens of our historical collections. The Artist Project gives you a glimpse of just what we mean when we talk about that kind of connected view of contemporary art. This innovative online series gives visibility to something we’ve known about The Met for a long time: it is a place of critical inspiration for working artists, often in unexpected ways. I’m excited to share these engaging and beautifully edited episodes with the public.”

Mr. Campbell added: “We are enormously grateful to Bloomberg Philanthropies for having the foresight to support this new online series as part of their Bloomberg Connects program. Their dedicated support helps deliver the Met experience around the world.”

Over the course of the year, The Artist Project will be presented in five seasons of 20 episodes each. In Season 1, the series will include Cory Arcangel, John Baldessari, Nayland Blake, Nick Cave, Enrique Chagoya, George Condo, Walton Ford, Natalie Frank, Zarina Hashmi, Deborah Kass, Nina Katchadourian, Nicola López, Alexander Melamid, Izhar Patkin, Tom Sachs, Katrín Sigurdardóttir, Mickalene Thomas, Kehinde Wiley, Xu Bing, and Lisa Yuskavage.

Subsequent seasons will begin on June 22, September 14, and December 7, 2015; and February 29, 2016.

The Artist Project builds on a series of signature Metropolitan Museum online initiatives inspired by The Met’s renowned collection. The Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History (2000– ) continues to evolve and expand, and receives more than two million visits per month. Connections (2011) offers personal perspectives on works of art in the collection from 100 Met staff members. 82nd & Fifth (2013) and its accompanying multilingual iPad app (2014) invite 100 curators from across The Met to talk about 100 works of art that changed the way they see the world—one work, one curator, two minutes at a time. MetCollects (2014– ) offers first looks at works of art acquired recently by the Museum. One Met. Many Worlds. (2014) invites visitors to explore more than 500 highlights of the collection in 11 languages and to respond playfully, poetically, and creatively. The Artist Project is the sixth installment of collection-inspired online productions.
