artists hungry for a taste of European modernity. After a 40-year commitment to teaching, Hofmann finally gained recognition as an artist in his own right when he was in his eighties. Artist/Teacher, Teacher/Artist includes rare archival footage of Hofmann teaching that reveals his passion for color, his “push/pull” theory of creating the illusion of space, and his insistence on using nature as the basis for all- even abstract- art. Through interviews with Frank Stella, Red Grooms, and other noted artists, writers, curators and friends, the film goes beyond biography to become an explanation of modern art itself.

Produced by Madeline Amgott for Amgott Productions. Co-executive producer is Karl Katz of MUSE Film & Television. (continued)
