Artwork for Immaterial: 5,000 Years of Art, One Material at a Time

Immaterial: 5,000 Years of Art, One Material at a Time

The Met

Stories of the materials used in making art are often as thought-provoking and illuminating as the objects themselves. From The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Immaterial examines the materials of art and what they can reveal about history and humanity. Each episode looks at a single material: paper, clay, jade, shells, and others, exploring the qualities and meanings that are often overlooked.

  • Some of the episodes are better than others. It may just be that my background is in art and materials, but many of the episodes feel pedantic or for children. Some of them have really interesting facts and stories though. The host's dialect drives me insane.

  • More please!

    I’m really enjoying Camille’s poetic and political perspective on the symbolism and meaning that embody materials, and what it means for objects to be de-contextualised from their original locations and placed into the Met collection. I hope this series continues.
