PRESS RELEASE- Premier Film Event- Art:21

 For Immediate Release:

Corpus Christi, Texas 

K Space Contemporary Premier Film Event 

Art:21- Art in the Twenty-First Century  

Now in it’s fifth season, Art:21 will screen at K Space Contemporary.  This prime-time television PBS series is the only one of its kind to focus exclusively on contemporary art and has received the Peabody Award for distinguished achievement in electronic media.  

Free premier showings for two episodes of Art:21 will be screened at K Space Contemporary on Thursday October 1st & 8th from 7-9 pm. The event will be complimented with a panel discussion led by guest artists and professionals.  Art:21 the television series airs beginning October 7th on PBS. 

Art:21 is a series of artist interviews which provide rare access to individuals who grapple with the complex issues of our time, ask tough questions, and make works that delight, amaze and sometimes unsettle audiences worldwide.  Featured artists include Jeff Koons, Cindy Sherman, and Yinka Shonibare. 

October 1st- Episode 2: Fantasy

Fantasy presents four artists whose works or personal stories transport viewers to imaginary worlds and altered states of consciousness.

Jeff Koons utilizes symbolically charged images and objects from popular culture to frame his questions about taste and pleasure in modern society. His painstakingly crafted artworks were recently exhibited at a groundbreaking and controversial installation at the Chateau de Versailles.

Mary Heilmann filters her inner world through her work, imbuing abstract paintings, ceramics, and furniture with references to memories and aesthetic influences.

Florian Maier- Aichen is a German-born landscape photographer. His works— alternately romantic, cerebral and unearthly—question German Romanticism and myths of the American West. A young Beijing-based Chinese artist, Cao Fei’s videos, photos, and new media works explore perception, reality and inner lives in places as diverse as a Chinese factory and the virtual world of Second Life. 

October 8th- Episode 3: Transformation 

Whether observing and satirizing society or reinventing icons of literature, art history, and popular culture, the artists featured in Transformation capture the sensibilities of our age while at times inhabiting the characters they have created.  

 Yinka Shonibare MBE -Working in multiple mediums, including painting, sculpture, photography and film, Shonibare draws upon his bicultural upbringing, European literary classics, 18th and 19th century history to create tableaus of dazzling color and patterns that provoke re-consideration of stereotypical colonial narratives.

Cindy Sherman, well known for her photographic series, creates a myriad of characters, metamorphosing herself from Hollywood starlet to clown to society matron in her photographs and early films. 

Paul McCarthy has created works of video, installation, sculpture and performance. His video-taped performances and multimedia installations satirize polite society, ridicule authority, and bombard the viewer with a sensory overload of spectacular imagery.
