Art 21. art in the twenty-first century : season three( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The artists in Power challenge authority, oppression, and control. Each artist humanizes difficult issues by acting as a witness to violence, working to heal communities, or achieving a balance between constructive and destructive energies. Whether critical, irreverent, or introspective, the artists in Memory delve into personal memory and the past, transforming them in their work. The artists wrestle with complex topics such as the veracity of history, the nature of interpretation, subjective versus objective truth, and the ways in which objects and images from the past embody cultural memory
Art 21. art in the twenty-first century : season one( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Most of the work that I do as an artist, whether it's music, or images or a story, begins with a place," says renown multi-media performance and recording artist Laurie Anderson in the Program Open she created for Art:21. "A room, a road, a city, a country ... these places become jumping off points for my imagination." Filmed on location in New York City and featuring talking and tropical billboards, the Statue of Liberty, a choreographed dance with red chinese fans, and a trip to a Japanese grocery store, Anderson's whimsical work plays with scale, point of view, and virtual spaces to create a fanciful dreamscape. For this premiere opening segment, Anderson combines the roles of artists and host. Spirituality opens with an original work by artist, Beryl Korot. While quilting, actress and host S. Epatha Merkerson evokes the theme of spirituality as a "thread which connects us all." Using found material culled from the broadcast, Korot manipulated the footage on her computer: slowing down, colorizing, and looping isolated gestures and sounds. Meditative in its pace, Korot's work harnesses the power of modern technology to create a space for reflection and intimacy. Korot's piece blends together fleeting moments such as a sunset in the Arizona desert, a guitar ballad by John Feodorov, and the preparation of tea by Shahzia Sikander for her miniature painting

Art 21. art in the twenty-first century : season one( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Identity opens with a whimsical collaboration between noted photographer and artist William Wegman and actor, playwright, and comedian Steve Martin. In this opening segment, Martin (or is it just a mannequin that looks like him?) questions the fundamental nature of identity amidst playful diversions which include card tricks, the sound of a lawnmower in the distance, ringing doorbells, and Wegman's agile Weimaraner dogs. The zany opening was created by Wegman on a sound stage and plays with varying degrees of reality and theatrical illusion. At one point, Steve Martin is rendered motionless when it's revealed that throughout the segment his hands have belonged to someone else - a puppeteer. Consumption begins with an original work created by artist Barbara Kruger. Hosted by tennis star and sports commentator John McEnroe, the humorously frenetic video explores the ways in which people consume things in their daily lives, from food to money to sex. Throughout the video, Kruger's trademark phrases in red and white demand the attention and obedience of the viewer. Proclaiming "Love art, Buy art, Sell art," and "Feed me, Love me, Buy me, Sell me", Kruger's text addresses the viewer in much the same way advertisers sway a consumer to buy a product

Time is always present in our interaction with works of art, whether we sit to contemplate a painting, stroll past a sculpture, or watch a video piece for its entire duration or cycle. Some works of art are time-based in that the viewer must experience them through the passage of time, as with music, while others refer to time through links or references to art history, our collective human history, or the timelessness of nature
