ART21 Screening: Fiction Dec. 2


November 28, 2014

Come to a free screening on Tuesday, December 2nd at 7:00pm in Bartos Theater (Weisner Building, E15, 20 Ames Street, Cambridge, Massachusetts) to celebrate the newest season of ART21: Art in the 21st Century, the award-winning documentary series that showcases contemporary art and artists. The episode “Fiction” examines how artists tell compelling stories.  How do artists disrupt everyday reality in the service of revealing subtler truths?  This episode features Joan Jonas, Katharina Grosse and Omer Fast 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.  We are pleased to screen this presentation featuring MIT Professor Emerita Joan Jonas, who will represent the United States in the 2015 Venice Biennale.  Curated by Paul C. Ha, Director of the MIT List Visual Arts Center and commissioner for the project; and Ute Meta Bauer, currently the Director of the Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA) at the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore and previously the Founding Director of the Program in Art, Culture, and Technology (ACT) at MIT, Jonas’s installation for the U.S. Pavilion in May 2015 will be an exceptional moment in her longstanding career.
