Twist ...

Barry McGee Feature from TheCreativeLives on Vimeo.

One of the most influential artists of his generation Barry McGee aka "Twist" was recently asked to reinstall a work of his at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art for their 75th Anniversary retrospective. What ended up happening was an installation that not only incorporated the original work created in 1996 but also sampled new work created days before the installation. In this piece we talk with Barry about the preservation of impermanent art and how reinvention keeps him excited.
