An extraordinary day in the life of Marcel Dzama

About

Canadian artist Marcel Dzama is known for producing small watercolour and pen and ink drawings, like those represented in the Tate collection. For this reason, TateShots was surprised to find him in a studio lot in Brooklyn, co-directing a big budget music video for the band Department of Eagles. Later, to celebrate the release of his new book, Marcel and his friend, film director and Jackass creator Spike Jonze, signed copies for fans at the David Zwirner gallery. He also invited us back to his studio to reflect on his ‘busy day’, and we witnessed some of the weird and wonderful creations that inhabit his world.
