Alfred Wertheimer, artist interview
Description:
Warren Perry, co-curator of "Elvis at 21: Photographs by Alfred Wertheimer" interviews Alfred Wertheimer. "Elvis at 21" is on tour; the exhibition is on view at the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery from October 23, 2010 to January 23, 2010. Learn more and view selected photographs on the online exhibition: http://npg.si.edu/elvisat21 In 1956, 26-year old Alfred Wertheimer was asked to photograph a rising 21-year-old-star named Elvis Presley. When Presley walked on stage that year, he altered the beat of everyday life. The world changed. Wertheimer captured the singer's transit to superstardom and the cultural transformation he helped launch. "Elvis at 21" offers viewers an intimate look at the public and private life of one of the world's most famous figures, and documents classic American life—from the diners to the train stops—in 1956. "Elvis at 21: Photographs by Alfred Wertheimer" was developed collaboratively by the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery, the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service, and Govinda Gallery, and is sponsored nationally by The History Channel

Lincoln Schatz, artist interview
Description:
Lincoln Schatz's generative portraits of nineteen leading American innovators, known collectively as "Esquire's Portrait of the Twenty-First Century," were created in 2008 on commission from the magazine. The portraits are on view at the National Portrait Gallery, as part of the "Americans Now" exhibition, August 20, 2010 -- July 10, 2011. Each of theses sitters—representing leadership in the realms of business, medicine, science, technology, and the arts—sat for his or her portrait for one hour in the artist's ten-by-ten-foot "Cube," during which time they participated in activities of personal interest. The Cube is embedded with twenty-four cameras, each of which recorded the sitter from a different angle. The ever-changing "generative portrait" that results consists for the footage from each camera played back for different durations and in different sequences, creating a representation that is analogous to a personal encounter with these individuals.
