9780615545660: Art: 21, Volume 6: Art in the Twenty-First Century

This lavishly illustrated volume, a companion to the sixth season of the Peabody-winning PBS series on contemporary art, offers unparalleled access to 14 of the most dynamic artists working today. The reader journeys behind the scenes into homes and studios for a look at the lives and work of world-renowned artists like Ai Weiwei, who was recently imprisoned by the Chinese government for his politically incendiary work, and Polish performance artist Marina Abramovic, who populated MOMA NY with installations featuring groups of nudes. The book features the artists' own words, artist biographies, and lush, full color illustrations. Other artists included are Mary Reid Kelley, Glenn Ligon, David Altmejd, Assume Vivid Astro Focus, Lynda Benglis, Tabaimo, El Anatsui, Catherine Opie, Rackstraw Downes, Robert Mangold and Sarah Sze. ART: 21 once again takes on the role of historian and recorder of the important international artists working today.

Book Description Art 21, United States, 2012. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Contemporary art speaks directly to the important questions of our time, as well as to the rapidly changing landscapes of identity. It is both a mirror of contemporary society and a window through which we view and deepen our understanding of life as it exists today. Who are today s artists? What are they thinking about? How do they describe their work? Why do they do what they do? These are some of the questions addressed in Art:21 Art in the Twenty-First Century 6 , companion volume to the sixth season of the Emmy nominated, two-time Peabody Award-winning PBS series, which introduces thirteen artists who draw on a variety of subjects, experiences, and aesthetic influences to create their work. The book echoes the style and philosophy of the television series, presenting the artists without interpretive mediation through excerpts of interviews juxtaposed with illustrations of their work.
