Barry McGee on The Creative Lives

We blogged The Creative Lives Futura clip last week {blogged here} and see they have updated their video channel and site with this Barry McGee clip.

This from The Creative Lives:

"One of the most influential artists of his generation Barry McGee was recently asked to reinstall a work of his at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art for their 75th Anniversary retrospective. What ended up happening was an installation that not only incorporated the original work created in 1996 but also sampled new work created days before the installation. In this piece we talk with Barry about the preservation of impermanent art and how reinvention keeps him excited."
