Editor's Note

We’re kicking off a new series that gives you exclusive access to the studios of local artists. For these clips, New Orleans-based artists share what makes their brains tick and show you the art-making process from idea to actuality. In this first video, Mike Lancaster visits Carl Joe Williams’ studio.

If you want to read more about Williams’ projects, re-visit a conversation about local arts initiative Blights Out and Denise Frazier’s review of his 2012 exhibition at The Front. And check out his work in the group exhibition, “Controls and Counter Reactions,” opening June 11, 2016, at Antenna (3718 St. Claude Avenue).
