ART IS NOT A MIRROR HELD UP TO REALITY, BUT A HAMMER WITH WHICH TO SHAPE IT—Bertolt Brecht

Against the backdrop of a culture in crisis, THE ART OF MAKING IT (former working title BEGINNING OF THE END) follows a diverse cast of young artists at defining moments in their careers to explore whether the art world ecosystem meant to nurture them is actually failing them. Are we at risk of losing the creative voices of a new generation as universities, galleries and museums are facing cataclysmic changes ? Or are we on the verge of rewriting history, expanding access and making art more accessible for all as outdated models are being rethought?

Embracing the conundrum of how artists must be in the market, but not of it, IN THE MAKING is both a cautionary tale about what America stands to lose if we don’t rethink how we value artists, and a love letter to those who persevere in their artistic practice in spite of the extraordinary odds against ever achieving a sustainable career.
