- Event Details
- In the back back-to-back screenings of Art in the Twenty-First Century , the Peabody Award–winning documentary series on PBS, the question of identity creates a backdrop against which notions of portraiture, stereotypes, self-awareness, and what it means to be an artist in today's world are investigated. The first episode, “Identity,” explores these questions through the work of artists William Wegman, Kerry James Marshall, Maya Lin, Louise Bourgeois, and Bruce Nauman (whose work For Beginners is on view at LACMA now). The second screening, "William Kentridge: Anything Is Possible," gives an in-depth look at the unique creative process behind the South African artist's work. Kentridge is known for his dynamic charcoal drawings, animations, video installations, shadow plays, mechanical puppets, tapestries, sculptures, live performance pieces, and operas.
