The Arts in the time of masks: Fine Art and Documentary Film

We have grown accustomed to the endlessness of arts cancelations but on this week's show Diana Moxon checks in with two artists who have shows on real life walls: Jenny McGee whose new show 'Special Midwest Places' opens at William Woods Mildred Cox Gallery this week, and Anastasia Pottinger whose 'Awful//Cute' photography show is on display at the Columbia Art League's South Gallery. For documentary film-makers though, a world in pandemic is pretty hostile to their art form, and Diana's third guest this week is film-maker - and Assistant Professor at the Jonathan B. Murray Center for Documentary Journalism - Robert Greene, who talks about the critical state of documentary film-making and what a world dominated by giants like Netflix are doing to the industry.
