Art 21: Art in the 21st Century Overview/Review

I just began watching the PBS Series Art 21: Art in the 21st Century. It’s thought-provoking, challenging, and a bit overwhelming–after two episodes, I find myself almost exhausted from observing the life work and thought processes of 8 extremely disparate and brilliant artists.

Episode 1, Place, included Richard Serra (famous for his gigantic rust-colored steel statues), Sally Mann, Margaret Kilgallen, and Pepón Osorio.

Episode 2, Spirituality, included Shahzia Sikander, James Turrell, John Feodorov, and Ann Hamilton.

I was particularly impressed with the work of Sally Mann and Pepón Osorio.
