The exhibition Matisse: The Cut Outs that was most recently at the Museum of Modern Art in New York was a phenomenal success. Bringing to light one of the often-ignored stages in Matisse’s career, the show was informative and bold. Accompanying the show, which some individuals may not have been aware of is a film called Matisse LIVE.
A behind-the-scenes documentary about the acclaimed exhibition from the Tate Modern and Museum of Modern Art in New York, Matisse LIVE includes interviews with individuals who knew Matisse as well as Tate director Nicholas Serota and MoMA director Glenn D Lowry. The film also features specially commissioned performances by Royal Ballet principal dancer Zenaida Yanowsky and jazz musician Courtney Pine.
It is not only a wonderful look into the exhibition, but also at Matisse; providing insight into his art and life with a unique take unseen before that is certainly worth experiencing.
