21 Tuesdays - feat. Mark Dion & Ursula Von Rydingsvard
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 15 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.
March 24th 11:30am - 12:30pm
Host: Tanya Bakija , Lead Preparator | The Fed Galleries @KCAD
Featured Artists: Mark Dion & Ursula Von Rydingsvard (Ecology): How does science inform these featured artists’ working processes, media choices, and subject matter? How is our understanding of the natural world deeply cultural? This Art21 episode features artists who address the submission of wilderness by civilization, the foundations of scientific knowledge, the impact of technology on biology and society, and mankind’s relationship to the earth, forged by working the land.
