In the summer, we have created an art-related list of films, documentaries, and TV series to stream on demand. As we get closer to the extremely busy Miami Art Week and gear up for our holiday break, We can’t wait to get in the living room to relax and watch binge movies.
For your convenience, we’ve searched through the stream content (on Netflix, Hulu, HBO, and Amazon Prime) to find the top art-related films and shows to binge-watch.
If you’re looking to master something or just want to indulge in something, add these 10 titles to your list of shows to watch.
Struggle The Life And Lost Art of Szukalski, 2018. (Netflix)
The film will be released on the 21st of December. This documentary traces the extraordinary career and life of largely unnoticed American-Polish artist Stanislav Szukalski (1893 – 1987). An avant-garde artist who was famous in Chicago and post-war Poland, Szukalski ended up living a quiet, unassuming life in Burbank, California. Filmed by art enthusiast Glenn Bray (who was an acquaintance of Szukalski) and directed by the collector Leonardo DiCaprio, the film exposes the shockingly bizarre life and story.

Random Acts of Flyness, 2018, (HBO)
The brilliant brain of multi-media creator Terence Nance, this new late-night program examines the modern black American experiences in a nonlinear stream-of-conscious format. It’s unlike anything else you can watch on the air currently (or ever). It’s more like a video rather than a TV show. In a Q&A after the show in conversation with HBO, Nance described the concept as “art-first black and white moving pictures.” We’re happy to learn that HBO is bringing back the show for the second season.
Loving Vincent 2017, 2017 (Hulu)
Nominated for “Best animated feature” at the Oscars, Loving Vincent is an intense biopic of Post-Impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh and the circumstances that led to his death. Hugh Welchman wrote and directed the film alongside his wife and artist Dorota Kobiela. The film is the first to be fully painted feature film using the same technique used by van Gogh, making it a remarkable and thrilling experience to watch.
