Summary
The Art in the Twenty-First Century documentary Change examines how artists respond to a world in flux and act as agents of change. Ai Weiwei infuses his sculptures, photographs, and public artworks with personal poetry and political conviction in critical examinations of contemporary Chinese social and political issues. In sculptures of clay, wood, and metal, El Anatsui explores materials and formal elements that relate to his aesthetic and cultural environment, exemplifying change and revealing the eternal cycle of all things. Working between conceptual and documentary approaches to image making, Catherine Opie investigates the ways in which photographs both document and give voice to social phenomena in America today. Weiwei, Anatsui and Opie bear witness, through their work, to transformation - cultural, material and aesthetic - and actively engage communities as collaborators and subjects.
