In medias res is Latin for “in the middle of things” and is used to describe a story that picks up somewhere in between the beginning and the end of the narrative arc. This site is meant to illustrate that great artists often emerge out of preexisting movements or influences before going on to change culture and, in turn, influence future artists.
