Dont let the name fool you: Meow Wolf is one of the coolest, most innovative and exciting artist collectives working today. Known for their interactive and immersive art experiences, the Santa Fe-based group has transformed how people experience art. Told from the perspective of the original founders, their Origin Story is a must-see for anyone interested in contemporary art.
The collective came together out of necessity in Santa Fe the galleries were not showing the work they were interested in making, so they created their own space. Through humble house show beginnings, performances in transformed storage spaces, and many collective meetings, they began to build a reputation and distinctly original style. Today, Meow Wolf is world-renowned for its transformative, inspiring approach to creating new works of art while celebrating and helping many artists along the way but the road here was not a smooth one.
This documentary is a singular story that spotlights the artists who are undeniably crazy diamonds that shine an electric light into the art world. Even if their art may not appeal to everyones style, their passionate and innovative drive to support the art community while creating something new is surely something to respect and appreciate.
