21 Tuesdays - feat. Julie Mehretu & Sarah Sze
Free exclusive weekly screenings of episodes from the Art21 series (Art in the Twenty-First Century) followed by open and accessible discussions about the creation and consumption of contemporary art. During each session we will show two 10 minute segments featuring artists from the 7 season series. Following the screenings feel free to head back to class/work, or stick around for some informal discussion (led by a local artist) about the featured artists and enjoy coffee and sweets from Nantucket Bakery.

Featured Artists: Julie Mehretu (Systems) & Sarah Sze (Balance): How do artists use systems? Why do we accept some systems while rebelling against others? In what ways can art convey equilibrium or disequilibrium? What is reality? In these episodes of Art 21, both artists construct chaotic compositions that strive for balance in spite of the various systems simultaneously competing for the viewer’s attention.
