Film screening. Art in the Twenty-first Century. Identity. 56 min.
Thursday, 25 September, 19:30
The four artists forming the focus of this episode explore the theme of identity through analyzing themselves and the everyday reality that surrounds them. Bruce Nauman uses a diversity of media, concentrating less on the development of a characteristic style and more on the way in which a process or daily activity such as speech or movement can transform or become a work of art. African-American painter Kerry James Marshall depicts various mundane yet fictitious scenes from the everyday lives of black people using techniques canonical to the European Renaissance. Maya Lin is torn between urban-scale works and smaller art pieces, emphasizing the relationship between man and the Earth – its landscapes, its seasons, its temperature. Louise Bourgeois explores her psycho-sexual identity and history in her highly symbolic drawings, installations and sculptures.
