meeting michelangelo…

So Michelangelo (Pistoletto) meets the residents he is hosting for the next 4 months and gives them a bit of a tour of some of his works. I have seen and heard this talk many times before but it is kind of incredible how he manages to keep things “fresh” and generally there is some little nugget of new information, but i guess for me the most enjoyable thing is watching other peoples reactions to him and of course also watching a true old pro at work…

Michelangelo talking about the moment when the reflections of the glossy black background of an early self portrait made him consider swapping the canvas for a mirror.
