The Unexpected Way These Artists Are Gaining New Perspective

An artist's studio is a sacred place, but what happens when someone “breaks in” to sneak a peek at the artist’s private work?

Sima Familant, a private curator and art advisor, joined HuffPost Live host Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani to discuss her new web series “Studio Break-In,” which provides an all-access peek into her artist friends' studios.

“We’re old friends so it’s so nice to be able to do something like this,” said Familant. “It’s also been fun for me because I’ve watched their work develop, so for me, I get to go into their space and just see more; I get to see more of the ideas behind it.”

One of the artists featured on “Studio Break-In,” Samira Yamin, joined the conversation to share how having visitors in her studio expanded her line of vision.

“Listening to someone meditate on your work in some way that you hadn’t thought of can just send you in a grand new direction," said Yamin.
