This documentary of the making of "40 under 40: Craft Futures" is insightful and fun. It shows a breadth of work by many artists, and illustrates colorfully how they all come together to exhibit their work in one place. Commentary by the curator and other museum staff lets us see what happens behind the scenes when installing an exhibition, and the artists themselves provide interesting dialogue regarding what it takes to gain recognition by a major national museum.
Would like to see more shows like this. Enjoyed it very much
