Watch: Artist Robert Longo On His Photograph 'Untitled #5'

NYC-based artist Robert Longo talks about the inspiration behind his collection, "Untitled #5". He'll be presenting it to the winner of the Tribeca Film Festival award for Best New Documentary Director.

Statuettes and plaques are are fun to win, but kind of boring to own. At TFF, we give our winning filmmakers something a lot better: original works of art by world-renowned New York City artists. The Art Awards program, in partnership with Chanel, matches famous artists with categories in our competition each year. This year, Artist Robert Longo's piece "Untitled #5" will be given to the winner of the Best New Documentary Director. Above, Longo talks about how the photograph came to be.

Longo's contribution, like those of all twelve 2013 Art Awards Artists will be exhibited free and open to the public throughout the Festival. The work is on view at the New York Academy of Art until April 24.

This clip is an outtake from Matt Black's upcoming short film in which he invades the studio spaces of five of this year's Art Awards Artists, which we'll premiere on Thursday April 25th (aka TFF 2013 Awards Night!). To see the works that this year's winning filmmakers will be awarded in each category, go here.
