Episodes 1 and 2: Investigation and Secrets
Wednesday, November 12 at 6:30 pm
Episode 1: How do artists push beyond what they already know and readily see? Can acts of engagement and exploration be works of art in themselves? In the episode titled "Investigation," artists use their practices as tools for personal and intellectual discovery, simultaneously documenting and producing new realities in the process.
Episode 2: How do artists make the invisible visible? What hidden elements persist in their work? Is it the artist’s role to reveal them, or not? In the episode on Secrets, artists share some of the secrets that are intrinsic to their work.
Episode 3: Why do we break with some traditions and perpetuate others? Artists in the episode on Legacy use life experiences and family heritage to explore new aesthetic terrain.
Episode 4: What makes a compelling story? How do artists disrupt everyday reality in the service of revealing subtler truths? This episode features artists who explore the virtues of ambiguity, mix genres, and merge aesthetic disciplines to discern not simply what stories mean, but how and why they come to have meaning.
