"Artists are some of the savviest, inventive people. They have to manage a really illogical pursuit. The rest of the world is a lot more logical. Every artist I know is dealing with a lot of stress, and a lot of desire, and a lot of curiosity."
—Diana Al-Hadid

Before hosting the second film in Art21’s new Artist to Artist series, artist Diana Al-Hadid made her Art21 debut in August 2012 with a film from the New York Close Up series. The film, Diana Al-Hadid’s Studio Boom, featured the artist and her team at work in the artist’s Williamsburg studio producing the sculpture, Nolli’s Orders (2012), for its MASS MoCA debut.
