"In Art safari, art geek Ben Lewis travels the world in search of great contemporary art - and art that might be great. A playful series of eight films that are both analytical adventures and adventurous analyses. Stopping at nothing to probe the minds of the world's most interesting, imaginative and insane artists, Ben navigates bravely through the art world's phalanxes of dealers, collectors and critics - and in the process discovers extraordinary works of art."--Container.
