Art in the 21st Century

art21.jpgAh, PBS—the single upside to not having cable. Next Sunday the channel airs the fourth season of the Emmy-nominated public television series, Art:21—Art in the Twenty-First Century, so get your TiVo, DVR (or, in my case, ancient VCR) ready. Running Sunday nights Oct. 28-Nov. 18, the latest installment offers four one-hour episodes based on ideas of romance, protest, ecology and paradox, featuring 17 contemporary artists divulging their creative process. First on the lineup is “Romance,” featuring artists Laurie Simmons, Lari Pittman, Judy Pfaff and Pierre Huyghe on the role that emotion, regret, fantasy and nostalgia play in modern art.

The series’ website also includes listings of season 4 artists who might have exhibitions coming your way. If you’re near Cincinnati in May, check out An-My-Lê’s gelatin silver prints at the Contemporary Arts Center.

Check local listings for air times.
