Art 21: Art in the 21st Century

If anyone is looking for something to do tomorrow night there’s a free screening of the documentary Art 21: Art in the 21st Century in the A.E. England Building from 6:30-8:00pm. Art 21 “explores the ways in which contemporary artists use irony, goofiness, satire, and sarcasm. The artists profiled are influenced by the history of humor and comedy, including vaudeville, cartoons, and comic books. Their artworks reveal how humor and satire can stimulate laughter as well as serve as a vehicle to explore serious subjects, such as feminism, the natural environment, the excesses of consumer culture, social injustice, and war.”
