Art 21: Place
DVD709.05/ARTT


How does contemporary art address the idea of place? How do artists working today reveal and question commonly held assumptions about land, home, and national identity? The "Art in the Twenty-First Century" documentary Place explores these questions through the work of Richard Serra, Sally Mann, Barry McGee, Margaret Kilgallen and Pepon Osorio.

Art 21: Paradox
DVD709.05/ARTT


Paradox investigates the boundaries between abstraction and representation, fact and fiction, order and chaos. Creating juxtapositions that are at times disorienting, playful, and unexpected, these artists engage with the uncertain and plumb accepted assumptions of meaning in art. This film features the artists Allora & Calzadilla, Mark Bradford, Robert Ryman and Catherine Sullivan.

Art 21: Stories
DVD709.05/ARTT


How do artists tell stories in their work? How does contemporary art reflect and reveal narrative traditions? How does the art of today record and describe the world around us? Art 21 documentary Stories explores these questions through the work of Charles Atlas, Kara Walker, Kiki Smith, Do-Ho Suh, and Trenton Doyle Hancock. The artists in Stories tell stories in their work, reveal narrative traditions, and record and describe the world around us.
