Through in-depth profiles and dynamic behind-the-scenes footage featuring artists speaking directly about their inspirations and ideas, Art:21-Art in the Twenty-First Century shows a broad range of artistic practice, technical innovation, and experimentation, from artists tackling large-scale collaborative projects in hangar-like studios, to those working in the quiet of more intimate studio settings.

EPISODE 1: Compassion
Preview at the Modern
Saturday, September 26, 3 p.m. and Sunday, September 27, noon

This episode features artists whose works explore the possibility of understanding and reconciling past and present, while exposing injustice and expressing tolerance for others.
William Kentridge, Carrie Mae Weems, Doris Salcedo

EPISODE 2: Fantasy
Preview at the Modern
Sunday, October 11, noon

Fantasy presents four artists whose works or personal stories transport viewers to imaginary worlds and altered states of consciousness. With works that seem at times hallucinatory, irreverent, and sublime, each of these artists pursues a vision first held in the mind’s eye.
Jeff Koons, Mary Heilmann, Florian Maier-Aichen, Cao Fei

EPISODE 3: Transformation
Preview at the Modern
Sunday, October 18, noon

Whether observing and satirizing society or reinventing icons of literature, art history, and popular culture, the artists featured in Transformation capture the sensibilities of our age while at times inhabiting the characters they have created.
Yinka Shonibare MBE, Cindy Sherman, Paul McCarthy

EPISODE 4: Systems
Preview at the Modern
Sunday, October 25, noon

Artists invent new processes to convey the attitudes of today’s supercharged, information-based society, examining why we find comfort in some systems while rebelling against others. Systems features artists who realize complex projects through acts of appropriation or accumulation. In some instances, they create projects vast in scope, which almost elude comprehension.
Julie Mehretu, John Baldessari, Kimsooj, Allan McCollum
