art is

Created by George Quasha
Writes Quasha" In this ongoing video work of speaking portraits begun in 2002, I put this impossible, but inevitable, matter before other artists, poets, musicians…: Tell me what art is [or what poetry is or what music is]. Result: a close-up of the normally private space of art definition. To date some 900 artists of all kinds–sculptors, painters, filmmakers, video artists, poets, composers, performance artists, and so on–have been recorded in eleven countries and twenty-four languages." On August 11, 2012, Quasha presented a special six-hour live FM broadcast version of the project on free103point9's WGXC 90.7-FM in upstate New York.
