"For us, the idea of having a work that has contradictions is very important—when, in affirming something, it includes itself and attacks itself. How can you put together all of these things that have nothing to do with each other? You use glue! Glue can be an idea, a word. You can use an ideological glue."
From the series
Throughout 2013, Art21 celebrates the 100 artists who have appeared to date throughout the first six seasons of our award-winning series, "Art in the Twenty-First Century." The series was first broadcast on PBS in 2002. With the completion of Season Six in 2012, Art21 has profiled 100 of the most iconic artists of our time.
We began production at the end of the 20th Century, and it has been an amazing journey to work with so many remarkable artists. As we look back at this milestone, we look forward to sharing new features all year long. Throughout 2013, we will release previously unpublished content from our rich archive as well as new material produced in collaboration with the artists: films, interviews, artworks, reading lists, and various other updates.
