The Triptych is a unique and profound documentary series profiling some of the most outspoken visual artists of our time.Produced by Afro-punk pictures, the documentary is itself a work of art, featuring three intimate 20-minute conversations with three bold and culturally resonant voices in art. Each monologue is a reflection of their life experience, letting the viewer discover how their observations have shaped the art they create.
The first in the series features Sanford Biggers, Wangechi Mutu and Barron Claiborne – contemporaries, luminaries and friends. Spanning the artistic gamut from interdisciplinary to photography and performance, their keen reflections on the world are at once startling and insightful.
Co-visionary, Barron Claiborne joins nascent director Terrence Nance whose new film, The Oversimplification of Her Beauty, premiered at Sundance 2012. Terrence makes art as a means of creating culture.
As a purveyor of the Black experience, Afro-punk is dedicated to supporting and disseminating the work of visual artists that are prevalent in our society.
