Art as Experience is an hour-long conversation between Tom Xenakis and Sheila Blake after their visit to an exhibition, serving as a guide for taking a longer look at art.

Looking at Difficult Art

Tom and Sheila visit an exhibition of non-objective art by painter Oliver Lee Jackson, currently on view at the National Gallery of Art, in Washington DC. Together they work out a way to approach art that’s outside of your habitual experience and taste. Oliver Lee Jackson paintings are described as a visual equivalent to jazz. Music by Julius Hemphill.
