"Some sculptors make drawings, I make heads."
—David Altmejd

New episode from the Exclusive series: Current 100 Artists featured artist David Altmejd describes the relationships of head sculptures within the context of his larger-scale work. “It’s like the center of the universe,” says the artist in the episode. “I like the idea that the universe was the size of a head just before the Big Bang.”
