Traditionally modern art has been organized, separated and discussed in great length by time period and movement. We wouldn’t be doing
that. These videos will instead look at art by theme. Places & Spaces. Art & Identity.
Transforming Everyday Objects. And Art & Society. These themes in an attempt to bridge the gap
between modern art & you. I think that modern art can meet you where you are and allows
you to work with what you already know. It says, interestingly, as much about you or
me as it does about the artist himself. There’s going to be pictures, there’s going to be
these people, there’s love, there’s death, there’s this guy, there’s this thing, there’s
a chainsaw. This is why this museum, this is why this subject is so rich because there’s
such diversity in it. If you find a foothold and get started, you’re never going to finish.
It’s going to be another way to look at modern art. Suddenly, it opens up a greater dialogue
about connections not only between works of art but to things we already know. It just
gives you another entry point to really engage with the art that you’re seeing.
