THE COOL SCHOOL is an object lesson in how to build an art scene from
scratch and what to avoid in the process. The film focuses on the seminal
Ferus Gallery, which groomed the LA art scene from a loose band of
idealistic beatniks into a coterie of competitive, often brilliant artists,
including Ed Kienholz, Ed Ruscha, Craig Kauffman, Wallace Berman, Ed Moses
and Robert Irwin. The Ferus also served as launching point for New York
imports, Andy Warhol (hosting his first Soup Can show), Jasper Johns and Roy
Lichtenstein as well as leading to the first Pop Art show and Marcel
Duchamp's first retrospective. What was lost and gained is tied up in a
complex web of egos, passions, money, and art. This is how L.A. came of age.

 

Featuring Irving Blum, Walter Hopps, Ed Ruscha, Frank Gehry, Dennis Hopper,
Ed Kienholz, Billy Al Bengston, John Baldessari, Dean Stockwell, Larry Bell,
Ken Price. NARRATOR: Jeff Bridges

Visit the challenging world of Bruce Nauman, a multi-faceted artist who
believes that the importance of a work of art is in the process of making
it. With this philosophy at the core of his work, he became a major player
in the conceptual art movements of the 20th century. Using a diversity of
media, including sculpture, video, printmaking, performance, and
installation, Nauman has used his art to examine the major questions of
life, mapping the human experience from birth to death. As in his 1983 neon
sculpture consisting of the words "Life, Death, Love, Hate, Pleasure, Pain,"
his work focuses on the essential elements of the human experience. MAKE ME
THINK features 60 works of art from Nauman's career, including his early
film projections and video installations Clown Torture and Anthro/Socio. It
also chronicles the development of a piece titled Violent Incident, which
Nauman calls a "video sculpture." Whether you like or dislike the art of
Bruce Nauman, MAKE ME THINK will make you think about the nature of art.
