Watch Cate Blanchett Play the Ultimate Tortured Artist in Documentary Now!

Cate Blanchett playing a visionary, eccentric artist struggling to find the right way to celebrate her art and grapple with a terrible old boyfriend during her career retrospective? Yeah, sign us up.

On Wednesday, IFC will debut “Waiting for the Artist,” a Documentary Now! episode based on the performance artist documentary Marina Abramovi´c: The Artist Is Present. (For the uninitiated, Fred Armisen, Bill Hader, Seth Meyers, and Rhys Thomas’s comedy series enlists actors and comedians to parody famous documentaries, including Original Cast Album: Company, Nanook of the North, The Thin Blue Line, and Grey Gardens, with extreme precision.) In “Waiting for the Artist,” Blanchett plays Izabella Barta, whose lover Dimo (Armisen) is an infamous provocateur. Dimo spent most of their relationship stealing Izabella’s ideas and cheating on her—so naturally, as she anticipates reuniting with him at her retrospective, she’s feeling the pressure.
As seen in this exclusive clip, Blanchett plays the tortured artist with exacting wit: an exhausted removal of her bright red glasses here, a condescending rub of the eyelids there. The idea she’s trying to sell is a bit unconventional: at the retrospective, she wants attendees to walk from room to room admiring her past art. In the end, they will find her in the final room—dousing the place in gasoline and setting it on fire before running out of the burning museum.
Sure, the idea might raise a few concerns—but as Izabella insists, “Art is not supposed to be safe! It’s supposed to be radical!”
Unfortunately, the city won’t see things that way—and so Izabella is hurtled back to square one. The tortured wail she then releases from behind a locked door—further evidence of Blanchett’s knack for understated over-the-top comedy—pretty much says it all.

New trailer for Documentary Now! episode starring Cate Blanchett

New trailer for Documentary Now! episode starring Cate Blanchett

Hello everyone!

IFC network released a new trailer for Documentary Now! episode “Waiting for the artist” starring Cate Blanchett and Fred Armisen.
Waiting for the Artist” is a parody of “Marina Abramovic: The Artist Is Present” written by Seth Meyers and has Cate playing an artist called Izabella Barta. According to a recent Vox article:

In Documentary Now!’s version, which airs on March 6, Cate Blanchett plays an Abramovic-like character named Izabella Barta, and the result is as close to straight-up satire as the show ever gets, probably because the contemporary art world presents plenty to satirize. Instead of sticking to the confines of the original film, Documentary Now! constructs a winking acknowledgment of the complicated gender roles in the art world, with Armisen playing Barta’s “bad boy” ex-partner, who gets his due. It’s a thread that’s present in the world of the film, but it took “Waiting for the Artist” to pull it out. […]

Episode is set to air next week, March 06, Wed 11 pm on IFC. Stay tuned!!
