This is a review of Art21: Art in the Twenty-First Century, Season 2 Episode 1 - Stories

I've been wading my way through episodes of this show for at least 3 years now. From the moment I saw John Waters' introduction of this episode, I knew it was going to be especially intense. This one focuses on the stories these artists tell with their art. Each of these artists' presentations is, even if perhaps controversial in some aspects, beyond what I have come to expect from viewing this series.

I don't want to paraphrase the artists because what they say is much more powerful within the context of their work but all of the artists say something important about inspiration and story development along with searching inside for true expression. If you are in any way interested in art or creating art or telling stories, watch Season 2 Episode 1. And all the others too.

This whole series is just awesome. I first caught it on PBS and was hooked. It's so cool listening to artists and their mindset as well as projects they done. I also had a few 'wow' moments when a few of them had done projects I had thought I might like to do. The price to own the seasons is perfect.

I had to watch this for class. Some of the artists were very interesting but a lot of others were not.

I love this series on Art and Artists! Naturally, some episodes of series are better than others - but on the whole I am enormously impressed by what PBS has achieved. This would be such a compliment to anyone teaching art or art history. The interview with Kara Walker was one of the finest I've ever witnessed.

Helps you understand the thought processes artists go through. I look at contemporary pieces with a entire new eye now.
