Plot Synopsis

Hosted by supermodel, actress and art history graduate Lily Cole, ART MATTERS delves inside the studios and minds of six leading contemporary artists. In each episode, Lily spends two days with an artist and follows them into their studio to discover their artistic processes. She accompanies them to their places of inspiration as they discuss the genesis of their work and how their lives as artists really began. Featured artists include: Turner Prize winner Antony Gormley, whose major public works include the Angel Of The North (Gateshead) and One & Other (Trafalgar Square); Christo, who is best known for his wrapped installations, from the Reichstag building to pavements, coastal stretches and entire islands; Tacita Dean, who has become renowned for working with 16mm film; Marc Quinn, who reveals his fascination with flowers, eyes and human identity; Fiona Banner, who convinces Lily to pose nude for a portrait made out of text; and Mexican artist Gabriel Orozco who uses the urban landscape and everyday objects found within it to twist conventional notions of reality. Ovation aired the U.S. premiere of this series on Sunday, February 14, 2016 at Noon ET/9am PT.
