Join us to watch and discuss an art documentary related to the show MATTHEW GALLAGHER: Research and Development. Like Matthew, Cai Guo-Qiang talks about bringing vision to unseen forces. His frequent use of gunpowder serves as both an ancestral homage and an acknowledgement of humanity's fleeting nature. Creating ambitious signature pieces on the largest imaginable scales, Cai's electrifying work often transcends physical permanence all while burning its philosophies into the audience's mind forever. Told through the artist's own words and those of family, friends and vigilant observers, Cai tracks his meteoric rise and examines how and why he engineers artworks that stretch as far as the eye can see and wow millions.
