In a context where travel is restricted and many museums remain closed, music superstars take you on a cultural tour through space and time, color and emotion. British singer and songwriter FKA twigs tells her story of the sensuous portrait of Mary Magdalene by Artemisia Gentileschi, an avant-garde depiction of empowered femininity created in 17th century Italy.

Electro-R&B experimentalist FKA twigs channels her inner David Lynch in a 16-minute short film featuring four tracks from her new EP, M3LL155X. The twigs-directed videos for "Figure 8," "I'm Your Doll," "In Time" and "Glass & Patron" are woven into an eye-popping exploration of what a statement calls "the process of feeling pregnant with pain, birthing creativity and liberation."
