We Are Family: Seven New Artists Join “New York Close Up”

NYCU Trailer

It’s that time of year again at Art21. We’re very happy to announce the inclusion of six new artists to the New York Close Up extended family—Debo Eilers, Daniel Gordon, Laleh Khorramian, Mary MattinglyJacolby Satterwhite, and Marela Zacarias. I feel like I just got a new set of much cooler than me siblings. This latest batch of animators, photographers, sculptors, painters, performance artists, and deep thinkers brings the total project roster to twenty-four. That’s a lot of brothers and sisters, I know.

You can expect premiere films on each of these new artists through the summer, starting today with Laleh Khorramian. Peep it here: Laleh Khorramian’s Epic Animations.

And because we love everyone equally at Art21, after this round of debut films, we’ll of course continue to release films on all the other New York Close Up artists. As Caroline Manzo sort of said: “Let me tell you something about my family, we’re always going to make short form art documentaries about each other and we will protect each other until the end.”
