Of the four segments new to this season, I was very much looking forward to seeing Art:21 - Systems which claimed:
Whether through acts of appropriation, repetition, or accumulation, the artists in this episode realize projects both vast in scope and beyond comprehension.http://blog.art21.org/
You have one more chance to get in on a screening, too. On October 29, The Contemporary will screen Episode 3 and 4. Episode 3, Transformation, features Yinka Shonibare MBE, Cindy Sherman, and Paul McCarthy, all of whom capture the sensibilities of our age while at times inhabiting the characters they have created. Episode 4, Systems, includes Julie Mehretu, John Baldessari, Kimsooja, and Allan McCollum.
After the screening, I took the time to enjoy Joel Leivick: In the Garden – An Exhibition of Photography in the Emory Visual Arts Gallery. Mr. Leivick's work will be on display until November 20. This exhibit is part of a year-long series of exhibitions that strive to consider key issues in contemporary photograph.
