Summary
Why do we find comfort in some systems while rebelling against others? How can the artist use systems as a mean of expression? Systems explores these questions in the work of contemporary artists Julie Mehretu, John Baldessari, Kimsooja, and Allan McCollum - all motivated to explain and explore the infinite systems of life as they experiment with abstract composition, performance art, stenciling, photography, and unexpected collections. The work of these artists is both ethereal and thought-provoking, and the film clearly illustrates how powerful a message they are sending to the world: individuals can be both singular as well as part of whole.
