This week we sat down with Javier Téllez, the artist responsible for the creation of NOSFERATU (The Undead), a commissioned work for Memorial Art Gallery (MAG). Also joining us is Jonathan Binstock, the Mary W. and Donald R. Clark Director of the MAG and John Hanhardt, Consulting Senior Curator of Media Arts for the MAG. NOSFERATU (The Undead) is part of a series called “Reflections on Place”: that place being Rochester, NY. Javier is an artist who incorporates people living with mental disabilities into his work and he did the same with this piece. Inspired by the 1922 film Nosferatu, Javier and a local cast created a film that incorporates celluloid, the theater and mental illness into an incredible body of work. Listen in to hear Javier’s journey to make this film and how it lives within the MAG.
