"Just something about Claire. Danes. That makes her hard not to watch and we've been watching for a long time. A teenager in the nineteen ninety, she played Angela Chase in the much loved. But short-lived television show my so called life after many film and theatre roles she starred in the much loved long running series homeland which won her a few emmy awards for outstanding lead actress homeland just wrapped up after its eighth and final season and you can't help but wonder what this actor will do next to compel us to watch her again Claire Danes Welcome to design matters. Thank you so much I'm thrilled to be here. Thank you, Claire I understand for a time you owned a hula-hoop made by artist Jean Michel Basquiat. Did you come to have that. I've. been looking forward to this question Yeah. That is true. Hot Pink with white stripes all around it. My parents owned actually still own with another couple a loft on crosby street and Basquiat was a renter I was about four years old at the time. And I do remember seeing him in the elevator and he was very charming. And some grownups really register with kids. You know they're like on the plane and I recognize that he was one of those people and yeah he eventually moved out and left a few objects hot pink hula-hoop being one of them. So you grow up in your parents artist's loft obviously in this same building with John Michel Basquiat, Yup your debt studied engineering and biology at Brown University, and then transferred to the Rhode Island School of design in the nineteen sixties where he met your mother did they were generally WanNa be designers? Yeah. So my mom was a textile designer. She studied textiles at wristy and was one for ten years might one of my first memories was watching her paint an endless series of flowers while watching or more listening to all my children. And and my dad was a photographer and he had built a darkroom in our loft. And that's what they did at the start of their their young lives They went to the bowery I after graduating from his D. and. Then eventually moved to so but yeah, and then they did other things My I have a older brother Asia seven years older, and then when I came around I, think it was time to make some more money really, and my dad was a contractor became contractor a business called overall construction good name and where the ever is degraded. Definitely he is Pun stor. And my mom ran a toddler school and Daycare Center, I saw two different names for your mom's toddler school, the Crosby street toddlers group and the crayons street toddlers tribe. So I think I should clarify for the record which was the actual may was much much easier to say and more literate of it was crosby kids. Because it. Yeah and Yeah there were six kids in the morning and six kids in the afternoon and she started that when I was about four years old, she taught one and two year olds and she ended when I became this like actor teenager person. But yeah, it was a funny way to live. Is it? You trampoline a trapeze installed over the kitchen table in his swing suspended from the living room ceiling in the apartment? Yes. That's all true. But that was all pre nursery school. Life, in the in the Danes households. The great things about a love is that you have this you know uninterrupted flat plane. Just expanse of of wood floors. So it was an ideal roller rink and guess my parents really believed in fun and then I had to share that space with other little humans, which was what was it like for you to share your home with a classroom full of toddlers in the morning and in the afternoon. You know. It was tough I've I guess, I, struggled with feelings of jealousy. For sure but I adapted and they were amusing and you know I encountered them every. So often now as fellow middle aged people and it's always a little startling, I understand that Lena Dunham was actually rejected. When she To be part of the toddlers. And my mom. My mom was amazing. She was really excellent what she did and There was a long list of people who were eager to send their kids there and and Yeah Lena when I met Lena years ago and that was like the first thing she told me was that her mother was still a little annoyed. I it was not personal I. Know that to be true I know I. Do I mean I do know a lot of nursery rhymes now? Just helpful having your own young boys? Yes that's right. I understand that you discovered the joy of dissimulation when you were three years old when not wanting to actually taken up you pretended that you were sleeping by mimicking some of your mother's twitches and body movements while she was sleeping, how did you figure out how to do that with your own body and to pretend that sort of seamlessly I think it's just a natural human impulse and instinct to to mimic to observe and to imitate I. Don't know why that's the case I'm sure it's served US evolution in evolutionary terms but look I mean kids are taking in so much I I'm just shocked by. How perceptive and sensitive might now toddler Rohan is, for example, but Cyrus was the same way. It's almost like the younger they are the more tuned in they are to every detail. I do remember that experience. It really was like I think the first time I. Stumbled upon something like acting and I. Was Delighted by the experience of it and the challenge of and it still at the root of what I do now. It seems like you are rather headstrong from the very beginning of your life and at five years old while singing and dancing on your parents bed you sell Madonna on television and suddenly realized that performing could be a job. What can be the sense that Madonna was actually working that it was her job. That was another epiphany this moment where I connected an action to a vocation. Even at that age, even at five people will ask you like, what do you WanNa be when you grow up you know I guess. I knew that was something to consider and. I don't know I just saw stars. I was just so inspired..

"Morning. I'm david. I a new exhibit at the Guggenheim museum focuses on one painting by Jean Michel Basquiat, and how the subject of the painting is crucial to understanding him as an artist making work in New York City in the nineteen eighty s the show was called Basquiat defacement, the untold story and WNYC's Richard Hake spoke to WNYC's art critic, Deborah Solomon about it. So Deborah, the work at the center of this show is called the death of Michael Stewart. Tell us about Michael Stuart, and what happened to the story of Michael Stuart is a sad one. He was annoyed as living in New York City in nineteen eighty three when he went down into a subway and drew some. Graffiti on a wall supposedly he was arrested by police and beaten by the transit police ended up in a coma and died thirteen days later, and because he was an order, just the news, spread like wildfire among New York's art community which responded with a variety of images that were meant to incite protests. Also mourn, his death. So how did Bosque out respond? He responded with a painting that is known as defacement, and I have to say judge in purely artistic terms. It's not one of his greatest works, but it's a fascinating piece of social history. He painted on the wall of his friend, Keith haring, who was also graffiti artists, and in a sense. Right. Exactly. They were pals and shortly after Michael Stewart's death Bosque ought when he was visiting Keith haring painted this image of a black ghost, like central figure surrounded. By two cops who are, in fact, clubbing him and later after Bosque outs death, Keith haring cut. The painting out of the oil, and had it framed. Wow. So Bosca never intended to show it, he didn't painted on campus. It's painted on board. And it has now come into the discussion of his work because of the subject, meaning he's protesting police brutality and question is should that be seen as a major theme of his work? And there are several other Basquiat paintings in the show, how they tie in with his painting of Michael store, loosely. But interestingly, he painted images of policemen as mostly monstrous figures, in nineteen eighty one and nineteen eighty two before the Michael Stuart incident took place, the show wants to uncover a fresh view of Bosca as somebody who was concerned about police brutality and traditionally, that is not the way he's been viewed, he's an artist who came of age in the early eighties, when the art scene suddenly went expressionist stick, and figurative after a decade of minimalism. Right. So in the seventies, we have all these spare tilting cubes on street corners. And then suddenly in the eighties, we have Neo expressionism and basket often presented as new. Oh, expressionist whose work relates to John do buffet and or fruit Antoine belly and western art. So he's been looked at in the context of art history. This show tries to take him out of that context slightly to show how he was an artist who was exploring of sense of black density and his work. It might seem obvious, but no show has grappled with that idea before, and this show also presents works other artists here in New York City at the time who also reacted to Stewart's death, right? Yes. There are about twenty works in the show. It's small it's concentrated and some of the other works are posters. Flyers the materials of political activism and show does give you a sense of a community coming together community of artists trying to bring attention to the tragic death of Michael Stuart, and it's very moving, I think, to remember this moment on the Lower East Side. So you say it's a small show, but it sounds like it's an oppressive. Yes. I think this is a very important show removes Bosque out from the context created by a generation of white art historians who saw him primarily as an artist who revived figuration in the early eighties. But his relationship was not only to art histories past. It was also to black culture in the early eighties and the issues of police brutality and feelings of oppression. And this is the first show to look at his work in that context. And, and maybe the context was always obvious to black viewers, but I don't think white viewers have been asked to think about it before. So in that way, it's very much a show for these revisionist times. I think we're still trying to figure out who Bosque was Busk yachts, defacement, the untold story runs through November six Guggenheim. Deborah Solomon is WNYC's art critic Debra, thank you so much. Thank you. Richard..

"Yes, I was living in little Italy, and going to school at NYU, and I was working on my master's degree in film, and the school was actually on seventh street between second and third avenue. So it was in the epicenter of the east village. He's friends from time in the film go right at the start trying to set the scene of what New York was like in the late nineteen seventies, and particularly what certain parts of Manhattan were like in the late nineteen. Seventies can you describe for audience who weren't there? What especially the Lower East Side was like, when the story was happening, while the Laurie side you know, they were burning buildings down the landlords because it was much more profitable to get insurance money than to have tenants in buildings. It was it was it looked kind of like a war zone and. I cut my hair very, very short about an inch long and took on the mannerisms of a young man, so that I could walk the streets, very confidently and not be hassled. And it was very dangerous. But it was also kind of exciting because, you know, you had to have this very attuned at antenna to the street into the people around you. So you were observing incredible stories all day long, which, I feel like you know, people are now walking around looking at their screens. They're not looking at what the world is around them. And in a way, it was a great privilege to, to be in such a dangerous place because you saw so, so many interesting exchanges. And, you know, we were all going to the same clubs that we're all, you know, even if we may not know, each other personally, we all knew each other by site. It was sort of this weird society that just developed because of the that nobody else will really. To be in this part of Manhattan, and it was affordable. So you could be an artist you could try all different things. You could try to be a painter, you could try to be musician, and nobody was in it for the money it was, it was about expressing oneself and, and you paid very little in rent, so you could work in Xerox shop or you know, have a part time job and be able to pay your rent, and, and do your art and hang out and go to clubs and you know, it was very, very active. What was the relationship between Jean Michel Basquiat and the graffiti writing scene that was exploding in the late seventies in New York? The kind of hip hop oriented graffiti, writing saying, well, he wasn't really at graffiti artists, which I also talk about in the film, although he keeps being referred to as graffiti artist. He really wasn't one Aldea's who was his partner in. Same was it did come from graffiti culture? And, you know, Sean, he, he was he was. Very provocative. He was he was actually what I also learned doing this film, is that he was a pretty advanced poet, by the time he was eighteen nineteen years old. The words he was writing on pieces of paper and how he was putting them. Maybe only on two lines and then crossing certain words out that he made clear that you could read. I mean it was done in a very deliberate way. And when he wrote things on the wall, he, he wrote very provocative musings, which later are, are, you know, his paintings, also have those kinds of musings and writings in them, which also make them so relevant for today. And, and so, you know, so intriguing is this use of words with his paintings, and it's interesting that as a young artist at sixteen seventeen he was writing these words in the art air in the art district of New York, you know, wasn't other places in New York. It was all in SoHo and you know, which at that time was the art the center of the art world. I wanna play. Clip? Michael Holman is in artists, and was also a member of the band, gray and he's in your film. And he tells the story about playing a show at the Mudd club, which was a social center for this scene that was famous for hosting bands like the b fifty two's, and the talking heads, and so forth..

"With we're not rocking with the smell from Ethiopia. Has you? Have you in your life ever like tried to quit or wanted to quit or I've stopped smoking in this, no, physical, whatever you just pissed it. You don't have to smoke. But there's no like withdrawal symptoms where you like bugging out, or whatever, whatever. So I've stopped smoking. And when I'm working I don't smoke when I'm working when I'm directing when making doing what I do too. Typically, not that's an afternoon evening kickback relied winding kind of film when you're painting not too much once again in certain times of the data, and you know, what this probably comes from. Now, I think about it from not being able to get a consistent strain that I know I must TV hybrid guy when your guy has more down type of weed or something like that it gets sometimes my decision making them not completely comfortable with right, right? Like Simone like the way I figure that out. I wanna go back into your legendary history just a little bit. You were you were friends with Jean Michel Basquiat? Both of you were helping develop. The early street art movement, we had blown up to become something global. Now, what was Sean Michelle like, oh, Joe show was my buddy? We, you know, we we were very insane on many things we like very different very like a like, you know, same age from different parts of Brooklyn. You know, home owning parents both of our fathers were. Accountants really, we'll dance to accountants. So we kind of had similar things. But my dad was this pot-smoking jazz loving intellectual on chair revolutionary like my dad my house hose, very different household than John's house who's twos. Dad was Haitian was very straight narrow, you know, do it by the book my way or the highway and John was a rebellious kid that was doing things differently. So his dad was like, well, it's going to be the highway for you. And so John, you know, broke out and was couch surfing sleeping in parks. I understand a little bit in the downtown scene. I mean now and we met so now the look back. It's like he was this digits genius. Who was constantly creating as a lot. There's a lot of narratives out the German show. But there's also a lot of great. Documentation documentaries that kinda pretty accurate. I've taken part in a lot of that stuff that gives people the real story. So if people haven't done there, you know, I mean, come on in early on when John began the first blow up everything was completely skewed. Unfortunately, once again with this complete like racist slant, like there's a wild man painting in the basement of this gallery and was a complete negative like how you know, which is just people assuming oh is guys got this hairstyle. He's in the basement. He's some wild guy that they found off the street, even when he did a collaboration with Andy Warhol. They created incredible body of work and the press were like Andes. They made it to Mike Andy had found this kid, and he was Andy's protege. And he was Andy's this and that the other which was all very negative and really pissed off and pissed all of us off. So that was the then narrative now is work is just read renowned in museums and everything across the planet. People have other now does but essentially John was we're really really good buddies. We en- sink on a strategy about how we our selves can make moves in the pop culture how we were going to do this literally we said Mike by any means necessary. We had the Malcolm posted them. We was going downhill in films going down the music was going down. Whatever we could to to be heard and make the impact that we both is trying to make on the popular culture, the strategy that you had was be in all media. And Joe that wasn't a strategy. The strategy was making art and that was at the thing. But I also had this idea of making film. And the idea making film was to showcase an abetter light. What we what our narrative was was to basically lay down that now too. Because prior to while style. There was nothing for the most part positive said about young black Latin youth using spray pain to express themselves. It was we were the scores of the city. Then there was this new music developing which I was close early on. I had I said men and made disconnection between the music and this visual from Vare just to put us in a better light. And the ideas that became while style were motivated by that is to show us as creatives as creative people his who are his what we're doing and that became the movie.

"What will you create today? If hip hop is the soundtrack of America, the visual language of hip, hop rooted in graffiti and wall murals, also saturates, the culture one big reason for that is say Adams, he started in New York's downtown graffiti movement of the nineteen seventies and eighties and came of age along with Jean Michel Basquiat, Keith haring. He was the founding creative director for def jam recordings. And he created the visual identities for the likes of beastie, boys. Public enemy and Notorious B I g he's also worked on advertising campaigns for HBO Nike and more over the years. He has put together an extraordinary body of work that explores brands pop culture race and gender say Adams, welcome to design matters of me say is it treated as a young artist. You used to paint t shirts and hats at bar. Mitzvahs? Yeah. I'm really impressed. Found that. Yeah. So what happened was in the early eighties like maybe hundred eighty one a woman named Joyce Tobin was representing me as a young graffiti artists when I was transitioning to becoming a fine artist and painter after my graffiti career was ending and her big idea was there a lot of young kids that my children are friends with that would love to have your art work at the bar mitzvahs. And so she threw a lot of her girlfriends at the time got me commissions to do murals. And you know, I played a lot of bar mitzvahs. It was pretty cool. Now, I went to a lot of bar mitzvahs and bought midst visits. I was growing up on Long Island, and I have to say I never ever had a spray painted t shirt or hat by. Adams? I was definitely in the wrong neighborhood. I definitely did a lot of them in great neck there. You have it. I I was this close. Well, you were born in Jamaica queens to a family you've described as middle class. What did your parents do while I'm actually was born in Harlem, and then we moved to queens, and you know, my my dad was a butcher, my mom was a nurse and living in queens was a million miles away from Manhattan. And it was just a, you know, a really simple quiet neighborhood. And it felt like we were just so far away from any real action. How has being a native New Yorker influenced you or do you feel like you're not a native New Yorker, given that queens was so far away from definitely I mean, New York is in my blood through and certainly by the time, I'm a teenager, and I'm going to Times Square forty second street and. And seeing like three karate flicks for, you know, like seven bucks, or whatever it is. That was a million miles away from where I came from N. I am a New Yorker. I mean, those are the things that inform everything I do know. I I was just telling somebody seeing Keith herrings art work on a spectacular billboard along with my friend. Jane Dickson way back then seem like the pinnacle of success, and I just thought..

"And palaces that are in but at the same time this complete lack of calf for both plots and historical accuracy this is one of those this is one of those really good cases to read that maybe we compete your section i n betwee a section maybe there's a blog out there about how many things willfully ignores gets wrong characters who don't show up until maybe twenty years later turn up now who are played by richard afterburners film but we're actually aged thirty five or forty time that the film is sats it's so interesting to see play so fast and loose with history in the service of what really is it's it's a woman finding her power it's also godfather tale of innocence being corrupted chicago i think says in the audio commentary that the whole final sequence of the film wes she is consolidating her power by enacting this trial of treason tooled some characters and that being that the being beheaded that being detained whilst she is reading some religious texts and then is shown resplendent when she cut her afterwards it's very similar to the end of the godfather web michael kogo yonis becoming the godfather rejecting the emotional weaknesses of his passed yeah i think if anything good book very readily admits to the very lot of inaccuracies and that he's led very much with the human site his interpretation of what elizabeth represented because he just boats through historic landmarks moola swedes really does just charged through them and there's kind of marriage proposals in religious comfort in in the traitors and he just you know it takes tech's most most is more focused on there's than an her kind of personal development it was quite shocking the watching some aspects of it when david attenborough character thank you this like when richard added characteristics to have her sheets brought to him every morning to he can keep an eye on her bodily functions and is very clear to say the body i don't go bodies body of the state now and to see something like that which is so you know glorified and things like the handmaid's tale to see that that was actually a part of her life was really quite shocking and the kind of political use of her virginity or using quote marks here virginity and how she used that she to advantage to this engage with any remaining ties and dedicate herself fully to the country was really fascinating i think it's it's very interested in presenting this time where a monarch in order to consolidate her power become the monitoring beach you had to present herself as god she couldn't be human chances denial those traits and that was where the the church of england comes into its own and does the film shows really i think good point too maybe and on his tweet from mark anthony ailing he says it's a fine film on reflection and cape line is absolutely brilliant in its she's going on small challenging roles since but this is a heck of a starting point i can agree with that i could imagine i i mean i didn't go definite i came out to what for first time as it was released by can imagine people being very excited by england in a row of this sort of grandkids so eddie in here under backed her oscar nominations after nominations announced the world stage this film was known for a lot of oscars audio where shakespeare in love was also known as for who else goes and so you had queen elizabeth as played by cate blanchett in best actress and queen elizabeth played by judi dench in supporting actress one of the only times where two different actors playing the same character nominates in the same year maybe it's something we'll never see again but it's such an interesting point in british film history as well because it's the british film that is when polygram was a big uk studio so i'm working title with finding their feet is the same year as notting hill k mount its year afterward and title and polygram made fargo trainspotting these films coming out it's such a different industry that doesn't exist anymore these big glitzy wellappointed star packed period dramas costume dramas don't really happen on the scale anymore they have it on television it's interesting to see maybe this point this is the junction point where it goes to tv this.

"The time it's like a similar sense of just feeling that you missed out that you really did see deborah unless nights yeah that was so that's been real the late teenage years of sean michelle basque yet out this weekend up next film club and film clip this week is elizabeth the nineteen ninety eight film that gave cate blanchett her first big role on international stage we have a clip for this part of the historical machinations that went into this beth's rise to rule a chat with mary queen mary as played by kathy burke close up so i might see your face when i look at you i see nothing the king only that whole your mother my father never did anything so as to cut off her head majesty forget he was also my father what do you not confess your crimes against me because you much stay i have committed them you speak with such sincerity i see you still a consummate actress so we said the jenkins couldn't be here today i think let's give him the first word on this you have their beth could you read this out yep he mentions sort of a weird surfeit of bird's eye view shots you can feel secure kaput what embody what beforehand punch even makes crummy scenes like prepping his speech to the bishops seen credible and that i kinda secretly like to the fact that there wasn't really a story just a bunch of things happening after the other but in all amazing shake as for kate blanchett it was obviously a major major star and it's good that she got all the slightly crummy historical john is out of his system i mean that's that's quite comprehensive komen i like the devil used of crummy behind this is such an interesting film that you having done a few of these clubs now from films and different eras this film's twenty years old and feels even more of a timepiece than some films that are older than that right down to the the fact that you know i remember this film coming out it was the same year shakespeare in love which also stars joseph fines and geoffrey rush so it's very confusing seeing them both wearing roughs you expect them to this point where jesse finds readouts philip sidney poem and it's like he's doing sitting there and shakespeare there it's quite confusing it's also just looking at the cast at this point you have lunch blanchett the beginning career you have john gielgud end of his career law downton attenborough towards the end of his career you have eric snow making his international english language debut alongside monkey unions such as christopher eccleston davidson in in a blink and miss cameo slimy daniel craig in there i love the fact that in the way that the credits building this film angus dayton shares slide with trade we have how few next to the future james equally full i'm quite upset the other way too on this could have been hey kid you've been film yeah it was very theatrical i was kind of probably tina and some of the large kind of set pieces very extravagant there was interesting dance routines cool i agree with david you can certainly tell the couple comes from a bully which by ground very lavish very well lit kind of creeper casket in some moments where i felt it almost kind of felt like eyes wide shut in some of the joyce's of writing certainly there's a scene where kate share is sort of psyching himself up to go and face it a room full of bishops that want nothing more than to have her dead the lighting and the the kind of face to camera the staging of that is really extrordinary i'm really chose her flexing her what would grow to be infamous acting muscles and she in turn goes from you know you can see almost like little flickers of emotions weeping before surveys to pharaon rage and being upset you distraught in kind of ping's back and forth it's very interesting she's much more convincing once she gets her act together and starts to really pull the strings of the monarchy and figure out herself the cape lunch we know that it's the the these empowered from that we see in her but she wasn't very convincingly play a clueless innocent woman there is absolutely no this film is so interesting as stated said the old the all these aerial shots high angled shots that show this the scale of these cathedrals.

"So beth we tried this last week going through the oil stock cast all eight of them and we failed we missed one out everyone misses one should we try this try and we're not seeing we've got the the nights away from us we're just trying this let's do it and so sandra bullock caped on chet aquafina medicating riana hasn't done in casa sarah paulson wong laughs one and has so when you say about film really right basically that's the job that's it that's all you need to joke but really the cast is the thing here is why people are turning up for this reboot this sort of reboots reboot this oh the ocean's eleven franchise women all in their own right mike homes or rising icons and that's what's bring people into the cinemas rights what interested you about absolutely i mean i'm definitely against the the suda fema rebate rebranding suit of wave that we're experiencing the moment set and so it was the cost kind of got my interest for the fed that it was kind of shackled to the franchise surprising how shackled it was in fact i thought this was just almost like oh supposed to just using the name using the sort of basic set up a heist with people who often good at doing hoists but then very early on we have a cameo from somebody from the previous franchise debbie ocean is danni ocean george clooney's sister and that's really a threat throughout the entire movie that she's trying to almost outdo him in tribute to him do an amazing heist from the off i think there's references tease shen when she gets out of prison she collects personal effects and one of them is down he's watch when she was inscribed to donny what she's still from him and as you say you just see references little winky in jokes through out the movie yeah exactly david jenkins wrote the review with white lies he hit today but we can read a quote from that it's on the website l legalize dot com if you want to read it he says it's a missed opportunity this cast is better and i think that is probably best place to start with because you have hair stars who in their own rights lock burster talent you have not only lunches under bullock and on hathaway could lead a movie like this but on the screen together and those in the moments the first half this movie is where this film really works for me when you're getting the band together and you get to see these various characters and they're just different energies different acting styles coming together and sitting sidebyside on onscreen exactly and then you've got a real variation touted as well i'm indicating as show runner she found her and cherry show runners de mindy project and you go akwa fina who this rising spirited rights aaron comedian you've got riana hugh as well as she's viana those issues ready successful engineer and a spokeswoman for women from disadvantaged areas so you really got this this really great onto rash of women current together and as you say as davis is quite forcefully a wasted opportunity just foes from the off as we said it was shackled to the original franchise are think there is so many opportunities for this to be moving the same right just to compete be away from from this franchise to see original writing from original women many talented writers and directors out there who would be capable of handling this cost in a completely different way talk about the fresh energies fresh talons on this this does not feel fresher told us a film it's a very beautiful film that the looks great that looks it looks at new york in a way that we rarely see anymore glitzy glamorous city full of opportunity you also have some amazing costumes and you also have talk last jalan doing the various steps that you have in a heist movie but as a heist movie it's quite boring boring an it's quite cold i found so i think with the original films you know there's a that this kind of swagger with this film it folk quite cruel at his heart in the kind of the way they go about achieving what they went to cheap they really do step on a few fingers i mean from the off when debbie's go from prison her first heist or her face conor she goes to a department store essentially bullies the.
