Art 21 - Consumption



How does contemporary art address the idea of consumption? How do artists question commonly held assumptions about commerce, mass media, and consumer society?

Art 21: Systems



What new grammars and logics do artists invent in today’s supercharged, information-based society? Why do we find comfort in some systems while rebelling against others? The "Art in the Twenty-First Century" documentary “Systems” explores these questions in the work of the artists Julie Mehretu, John Baldessari, Kimsooja, and Allan McCollum.

Art 21: Transformation



Costumes and masks, makeup and style, dolls & mannequins, stage and cinema—what strategies do we use to refashion identity? Do we seek out excess and extremes in order to see ourselves more clearly? The "Art in the Twenty-First Century" documentary “Transformation” explores these questions in the work of the artists Yinka Shonibare MBE, Cindy Sherman, and Paul McCarthy. (Summary taken from pbs.org)
