Extreme to Mainstream

Show Summary

Extreme to Mainstream is an original documentary series from the Sundance Channel that explores the common but mysterious transition of a popular artist establishing themselves as a controversial and cutting-edge creator and then becoming more household and family-friendly as the years go by. It's a common but unexplained occurrence in popular art. When a musician, filmmaker, writer, architect, or other artist initially emerges, they can build a reputation on their ability to work outside of convention and create works of remarkable freshness. Then, once they've become an institution in their own right and established their presence in the art community, many creators revert to more subtle works, utilizing less of the extreme techniques they became known for and incorporating more traditional elements. This series seeks to shed some light on this phenomenon through a series of intimate interviews with industry legends who talk about the development of their style. Then, these wise mentors speak about the current generation of young, boundary-pushing artists that they most admire and offer their opinions on the nature of creation.moreless
