The Triptych

About This Episode


The Triptych is a unique and profound documentary profiling African American performing artists Sanford Biggers and Wangechi Mutu, two of the most outspoken visual artists of our time. A work of art itself, the documentary features two conversations; each monologue is a reflection of their life experience, letting the viewer discover how their observations have shaped the art they create. Spanning the artistic gamut from interdisciplinary to photography and performance, their keen reflections on the world are at once startling and insightful.

The third artist profile of Barron Claiborne, a contemporary, luminary and friend of Biggers and Mutu, will be streamed on PBS.org.
