Art : 21
A favorite resource on contemporary art - for both students and instructors - is the video series from PBS
Art:21. Each season comprises 4 hour-long programs organized around themes such as spirituality, humor, and paradox. In-depth interviews with artists cover their works, techniques, and philosophies. Laylah Ali, Matthew Barney, Margaret Kilgallen, Jeff Koons, Kerry James Marshall, Julie Mehretu, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and Andrea Zittel are among the more the 80 artists appearing.
The Visual Resources Center has the five seasons available on DVD for borrowing. The first four seasons can also be viewed on the Art21 website. Even more resources such as interviews, slide shows, instructional material, and videos are available at the website. Enjoy!
