Tracey Moffatt Art Calls

Art calls, 2014 is a candid, comic and enticingly unruly, two-part TV pilot, in which Tracey Moffatt interviews eight creatives about what art means to them.

Art Exhibition previously on at Centre for Contemporary Photography (CCP) in Victoria, Australia.

Dialling in over Skype, Moffatt chats with contemporary artists, architects, writers, filmmakers and fashion designers from around the world including Destiny Deacon, Clinton Nain, Janina Harding, Jenny Kee and Deborah Kass, as well as Jan Billycan from the Kimberley, and Perth artists and brothers, Abdul-Rahman and Abdul Abdullah. At her end, Moffatt, meticulously glamorous against a black-and-white backdrop, complete with full moon and parting clouds, plays a knowing medium, of sorts, opening the channels with frank banter in a hilarious and down-to-earth exposé of both the interviewer and interviewee. Each session segues into the next interview with an experimental Dadalike score by Western Australian composer Cat Hope and a surrealist montage by Queensland filmmakers Julie Pitts and Miles Blow.
