Unconventional Art Mediums Gaining Recognition

Author: www.farmhousemagazine.com  //  Category: Uncategorized

There are lots of television providers and vendors out there like http://directtelevisionpackages.com and if you care about the underground art scene you might just want to make sure you find one offering PBS. Why? Art21 – that’s why.

Art21 is a biennial modern art showcase that documents and interviews some of the major modern and underground artists of our time. It is professionally produced and features a clean, crisp and sexy look at not just the art but the artists and their process as well.

It’s also not without a certain tongue-in-cheek sensibility. Every episode is introduced by a different celebrity. Some of these celebrities are from the art world and some, like Steve Martin, have very artist-like sensibilities and perspectives.

What is most impressive about the show is the all-inclusive nature of it when it comes to documenting art. You’ll see a lot of specials and scholars who do more talking about what art ISN’T than what it actually could be. This refreshing take on the field allows for there to be more possibilities and more potential.

Art21 is a must for anyone looking to see what’s hot in the world of modern and underground art. It also gives this particular “sub-genre” of art the recognition it deserves.

These galleries often sponsor art shows, for a small fee, through the year so that artists can Read more…
