4 Shots From 4 Films: Savage Messiah, All The Vermeers in New York, The Stendhal Syndrome, Mr. Turner

4 Shots from 4 Films is just what it says it is, 4 shots from 4 of our favorite films. As opposed to the reviews and recaps that we usually post, 4 Shots from 4 Films lets the visuals do the talking!

In honor of Slow Art Day, here are…

Today is Slow Art Day, which is a day in which we are encouraged to celebrate art by going to a museum  taking our time to truly appreciate what we’re seeing.  This also seems like the perfect day to select Jane Zhang’s Dust My Shoulders Off for our music video of the day!

The video features Zhang at a museum, literally becoming a part of 11 different paintings.  Over the course of the video, the following paintings are recreated:

Nighthawks by Edward Hopper

Meisje met de parel by Johannes Vermeer

Christina’s World by Andrew Wyeth
