Leslie Iwai is an artist who lives in Omaha and works in a variety of mediums, including performance, performance installation, and sculpture, among others. In this segment, we go to the MONA (the Museum of Nebraska Art in Kearney) where Iwai did a four-month-long performance installation based in part on the classic story of Jack and the Beanstalk. The installation explores how some of the fable’s themes connect with contemporary issues.
The explosion of artistic work occurring across Nebraska is featured in this unique project produced by NET Television. This series of eight short video segments showcases the diversity of innovative artistry in the Cornhusker state.
