Art 21 : art in the twenty-first century 5 by Susan Sollins( Book )

4 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Contemporary art speaks directly to the important questions of our time, as well as to the changing landscape of identity. It is both a mirror of contemporary society and a window through which we view and deepen our understanding of life as it exists today. Who are today's artists? What are they thinking about? How do they describe their work? Why do they do what they do?" "These are some of the questions addressed in Art:21 Art in the Twenty-First Century 5, companion volume to the fifth season of the Emmy-nominated, Peabody Award-winning PBS series, which introduces fourteen artists who draw on a variety of subjects, experiences, and aesthetic influences to create their work. The book echoes the style and philosophy of the television series, presenting the artists without interpretive mediation through excerpts of interviews juxtaposed with illustrations of their work. Among the artists profiled are John Baldessari, Cao Fei, William Kentridge, Florian Maier-Aichen, Cindy Sherman, and Carrie Mae Weems." "Images of the artists culled from documentary footage provide a behind-the-scenes look into the creative process. In a rich mosaic, the artists are depicted at home, in the studio, and in the community - with collaborators, friends, and family - debunking the Romantic notion of the artist as an isolated genius. An intimate portrait, these visuals capture what Susan Sollins, Curator and Executive Producer of the Art:21 series, describes as the moment when "the makers - those who have allowed their own creativity to flow - look us directly in the eye."" "Throughout this volume the artists' varied and engaging voices speak to us directly - musing, analyzing, and laughing about their lives, work, and inspiration. As Kay Larson of the New York Times put it in a review of the series, "Artists may charm, irritate, instruct, entertain, confound. But they achieve their effectiveness ... just by being themselves ... They have identified what suits them, nurtures them and lets their lives expand. And they will tell you so at length if you invite them." In turn, their comments invite us to listen and look, to inquire more deeply, and most of all to enjoy and understand the richness and diversity of contemporary art." --Book Jacket

Visually captivating and intriguing, contemporary art is admired and appreciated by many in museums and galleries. Yet few are given access to the creative processes behind the work--the inspirations and ideas that translate into compelling finished objects. Through in-depth profiles and interviews, Season 4 of "Art in the Twenty-First Century" reveals the inspiration, vision and techniques behind the creative works of some of today's most accomplished contemporary artists. Art21 travels across the country and abroad to film 17 contemporary artists, from painters and sculptors to photographers and filmmakers, in their own spaces and in their own words. The result is a rare opportunity for television viewers to experience first-hand the complex artistic process--from inception to finished product--behind some of today's most thought-provoking art. The artists profiled in the series speak directly to the audience, describing their passions, impulses and methods. Viewers are invited behind-the-scenes to see artists at work in their studios, homes, communities, and in sites as diverse as an old-growth forest near Seattle, a military base in California, a theater academy in Warsaw, and a film set, in addition to galleries and museums. "This series not only showcases the contributions of these artists, but also transcends the everyday art experience of a museum or gallery visit, " says Susan Sollins, Executive Producer of the series. "Viewers can discover what goes on inside the minds of these dynamic and thoughtful people, and what they have to say can significantly expand our knowledge and understanding of the world." As in the previous three seasons of "Art in the Twenty-First Century, " each hour-long episode of Season 4 is loosely structured around a theme that unifies the individual artists - as diverse as their mediums may be. Season 4 episodes of "Art in the Twenty-First Century" include the themes of "Romance, " "Protest, " "Ecology, " and "Paradox."
