Artists in Context, Maine Arts Commission, and Maine College of Art & Design present a preview screening of the first episode of "Art 21 Season Six: Change." The first hour of Season 6 features artists who bear witness, through their work, to transformation—cultural, material, and aesthetic—and actively engage communities as collaborators and subjects. The artists profiled are Ai Weiwei, El Anatsui, and Catherine Opie.
The film will show in Osher Hall at MECA&D at 5pm on April 26. Following the screening, a discussion on the art of change will be moderated by Chris Thompson, Associate Professor of Art History at the Maine College of Art & Design.
The event is free and open to the public.
