Second day filming started with Joan Mirviss at her temple of Japanese contemporary ceramics, Joan B Mirviss Ltd. We explored the new clay art created in Japan, traditionally seen as the ultimate expression of Japanese spirit, art, and daily life. We looked at the work of four artists of two families, working in Mino, Japan. In the afternoon, we visited the stunning Tribeca loft of Bernard Lumpkin and Carmine Boccuzzi, who have emerged as leading collectors and patrons of black contemporary art. Their family collection is the subject of a new publication titled 'Young Gifted, and Black.' As patrons, they seek to support progress for black art, and to ensure that skin color, gender, and sexual orientation are not barriers to make an impact.
