Description

 

Having just staged important exhibitions at LACMA, contemporary artists Ai Weiwei and Glenn Ligon are each featured in separate episodes of "Art in the Twenty-First Century," adding criticism and thoughtful dialogue to the popular PBS series now in its sixth season. The episode "Change” features artists who bear witness, through their work, to transformation—cultural, material, and aesthetic—and actively engage communities as collaborators and subjects. Ai Weiwei, El Anatsui, and Catherine Opie are featured. “History” features artists who play with historical events to explore and expose commonly held assumptions about historic 'truth,' creating narratives based on personal experiences. Marina Abramović, Glenn Ligon, and Mary Reid Kelley are featured.
