Les Levine

I Am an ArtistDiamond Mind

The foundation for Levine’s conceptual work is playing with communicative structures. He views art as a social system that he constantly questions with ironic and provocative statements. In I Am an Artist, he walks through the streets of New York and insists, while addressing constantly monologically the camera following him and curious passersby, on a “pure” concept of art: he’s an artist, and thus could not get involved.
