Behind the Canvas explores American artist Jim Dine’s latest contribution to the Chazen Museum of Art’s permanent collection. Dine’s four-panel mural exploring and honoring the art of classical antiquity took more than two years to make and crossed the ocean before its eventual installation in Madison. With footage capturing Dine at work in his Paris studio, the film documents the artist’s creative process as well as the transportation and highly technical installation of the work.
