Art Nouveau: So, elevator pitch for New Blood: in 15 or 30 seconds, you’re caught in an elevator – or between flights – and someone wants to know about New Blood, what would you tell them?
Morgan: I would say that in the art world everyone has helped someone along the way, and especially now, even myself, I find myself in a position where I try and give other people a break. I let everyone know: ‘This is a filmmaker you should know about. This is a writer you should know about. This is someone you need to be paying attention to, because they’re going to be after our jobs in a few years – that’s how good they are.’ So the same thing is in the art world, that there are plenty of people who have apprenticed under, whomever, for centuries, who – whether it be Rembrandt, whether it be Picasso – or whether it be these people who we’re having in the show, and what I want those artists to do is share those people that they believe are the next big thing with all the rest of us.
