ART 21 Season 5 Screening

Thursday, October 1 , 7 PM

MCASD La Jolla

Members: Free / General: Free
Join MCASD for a sneak preview of the new season of the award-winning PBS documentary series on contemporary art. For this special screening, MCASD will show two episodes from the fifth season, Compassion and Systems.

The Compassion episode features artists William Kentridge, Doris Salcedo, and Carrie Mae Weems, whose works explore conscience and the possibility of understanding and reconciling past and present, while exposing injustice and expressing tolerance for others. The Systems episode highlights artists who realize complex projects—John Baldessari, Kimsooja, Allan McCollum, and Julie Mehretu—whether through acts of appropriation, accumulation, living as an artist-nomad, or creating projects so vast in scope as to elude comprehension.
