Summary, etc Contemporary art reflects the ideas of our time, and artists are the creative role models grappling with today’s most relevant questions. What is the nature of reality? How do we respond to a world in flux? Why do some historical events shape the way we think today, and why have some been forgotten? Explore these concepts and many more in Season Six of Art in the Twenty-First Century, the Peabody Award-winning documentary series which offers viewers a unique look into the thoughts, processes, and lives of today’s most accomplished artists. Art in the Twenty-First Century spotlights contemporary artists at work, and speaking in their own words, revealing why, where, and how they work. Spanning the globe from Nigeria to New York City, from Beijing to Brazil, the series demonstrates the power of art to alter perception, challenge convention, and change how we see the world around us.

Expansion of summary note 1. Change - How do artists respond to a world in flux? In what ways do artists act as agents of change, and what kinds of aesthetic choices do they make to express it? This episode features artists who bear witness, through their work, to transformation — cultural, material, and aesthetic — and actively engage communities as collaborators and subjects.

2. Balance - In what ways can art convey equilibrium or disequilibrium? What is reality? How do artists perceive and express it? This episode features artists whose works explore the distinctions between balance and imbalance, and demonstrate that the smallest change in a line, a formal element, or a structure can be a radical proposition.

3. History - How do artists mine the past to explore the present? Why do some historical events shape the way we think today, and why have some been forgotten? In what ways do artists use their own histories to examine the human condition? In this episode, artists play with historical events, explore and expose commonly held assumptions about historic ‘truth,’ and create narratives based on personal experiences.

4. Boundaries - Who and what limits our freedom of expression? In what ways do cultural differences affect our understanding of art and other forms of communication? How do an artist’s process and choice of medium affect our perception of his or her work? This episode features artists who synthesize disparate aesthetic traditions, present taboo subject matter, discover innovative uses of media, and explore the shape-shifting potential of the human figure.
