Summary
The episode of "Art in the Twenty-First Century" showcases five artists who address and respond to contradiction, conflict and ambiguity, and examine the relationship between mystery and meaning in art. Collaborators Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla believe that art can function as a catalyst for social change, and their works-including sculpture, video documentation and public installations-often solicit active participation and critical responses from their viewers. Robert Ryman's white canvasses emphasize the role that perception and context play in creating an aesthetic experience. Mark Bradford uses signage and advertisements scavenged from the street to create wall-sized collages that respond to the impromptu networks, such as underground economies, that emerge within a city. Catherine Sullivan's anxiety-inducing films and live performances reveal the degree to which everyday gestures and emotional states are scripted and performed, questioning the border between innate and learned behavior.
