WATCH LIST

I recommend Chef’s Table on Netflix because it not only talks about food history, but it also has an artistic perspective. It’s a perfect show to inspire you to do some good home cooking during this time.  -Veronica Caseres, DJ, artist, Visitor Services Associate

I recommend F is for Fake (1973), maybe the first docudrama ever made, because it’s a good Criterion Collection throwback film. It was Orson Welles’ last and is introspective and playful. And, it’s all about art forgery! -Gina Gladson, photographer, writer, aerialist, Visitor Services Associate 

I recommend the podcast Horror Vanguard, in which the hosts discuss Marxist analyses on films of the Horror/Gothic genre. I also recommend Tía Chuck (2018), the documentary about Chuck Ramirez, by Walley Films. – Alexandra Murphy, art historian, Visitor Services Associate 

My movie pick is Junebug (2005). I love this movie because it is a very tender look at the intersection of big city art collections and the average American home, as well as the impact of family. – Audrey LeGalley, artist, MFA Student, Visitor Services Associate 

I recommend Modern Art Notes podcast. There are a lot of interviews with artists whose works are exhibited at Ruby City. Most of all it gives first hand insight to the artists’ process and how their minds work. 
-Edward Harrison, artist, Visitor Services Associate 

Murder Party (2007) is a hilarious jab at the pretentiousness of art students. An invitation is sent out for a “murder party,” where one man is designated the murder victim for the sake of art. What follows is a portrayal of the crazy things people will say and do to confirm their own importance. It’s a fun ride for horror fans as well as artists who don’t want to take themselves too seriously. -Jayne Valverde, artist, Visitor Services Associate 

I recommend the Netflix series The Get Down, which showcases a great look into the early days of hip hop and graffiti in 1970s New York City.  -Boma Muaka, artist, photographer, Visitor Services Associate  

I recommend the 99% Invisible podcast, which explores how art and design interweave with, and affect not just our everyday lines, but the way societies change and develop. -Hilary Rochow, designer, illustrator, gallerist, Visitor Services Associate 

I recommend the podcast 99% Invisible by Roman Mars. He does a wonderful exposé in each episode on everyday objects. He spends the episodes pointing out how design and history play a part in even the most mundane things we interact with on a daily basis.  – Justice Graham, printmaker, ceramicist, Visitor Services Associate
