The Way I See It

Art lovers and art historians may enjoy The Way I See It. This audio and video series from the Museum of Modern Art in New York features "leading creative thinkers" (writers, actors, activists, and more) discussing a piece from the Museum that speaks to them. Interviewees analyze the complex meanings and emotions that the pieces encompass, wrestling with the dichotomy of anger and joy. The series also explores "countless stories and connections," and examines the ways that art demands that we "confront history." The Way I See It is hosted by Alastair Sooke, an art critic and historian, and takes the form of two mediums: a 30-part podcast (each episode around 15 minutes in length) and several YouTube videos that accompany select episodes (each clip around five minutes in length). These videos are available as a playlist on MoMA's YouTube channel. As filmmaker and series guest John Waters declares, "bad taste and good taste in art are very, very close;" see for yourself with The Way I See It.
