ART21: Art in the Twenty-First Century
Episode 3: Vancouver
In small and tightly-knit Vancouver, artists reframe the world through a series of sophisticated illusions. By recreating historical moments, staging photos of vernacular scenes, and crafting intricate sculptures that trick the eye, artists reveal how everyday images and moments from the past are not always what they seem.
This winter, Spartanburg Art Museum in association with Hub City Tap House, present three episodes from the latest season of the Peabody Award-winning series ART21: Art in the Twenty-First Century, which provides unparalleled access to the most innovative artists of our time, revealing how artists engage the culture around them and how art allows viewers to see the world in new ways,
For the first time in the history of ART21, the episodes are not organized around an artistic theme but instead are grouped according to the featured artists' unique and revealing relationships to the places where they live: Mexico City, Los Angeles, and Vancouver; exploring the complex and varied art scenes in each of these North American cutural hubs.
And, for the first time in the history of Spartanburg, these films will be free and open to the public, projected by the Museum onto the 13-foot-high walls of the Hub City Tap House. Each screening is followed by an open Q&A and panel-style discussion with SAM curators and participating art educators from area colleges.
SAM is funded in part by The Arts Partnership of Greater Spartanburg and its donors, the County and City of Spartanburg, and the South Carolina Arts Commission which receives support from The National Endowment for the Arts.
