“Inside My Studio” with Jon Kessler


Cultured presents Anderson Ranch Arts Center’s second annual “Inside My Studio” summer series. Directed and produced by Dennis Scholl, the series features nine artists as they paint intimate portraits of their life and studio. The fifth installation of this year’s series features New York-based artist Jon Kessler. Kessler’s kinetic sculptures have made him a pioneer in post-utopian narratives. His studio, which was once filled with assistants, is now home to just Kessler and his work. “As the world becomes crazier, I find my studio is more and more a place of solace. I shut the door and I go deep into my work.”  Outside his studio, Kessler plays guitar for a band he started with Robert Longo, who is also featured in this series.
