Warehouse 4726 is proud to celebrate with Art21 | 21 Years
To mark this important event, we’re hosting a public screening of an episode from their 21st Season, Episode 9: “San Francisco Bay Area,” featuring Creative Growth Art Center, Katy Grannan, Lynn Hershman Leeson, and Stephanie Syjuco. The screening will be followed by guided conversation.
EPISODE SYNOPSIS: A longtime home for political progressives and technological pioneers, the San Francisco Bay Area is a magnet for artists who are drawn to its experimental atmosphere, countercultural spirit, and history of innovation. In addition to presenting three artists working across photography, installation, and new media, this episode features a nonprofit art center, spotlighting multiple artists with physical and cognitive disabilities who work in a range of mediums. The artists in this hour are united by their steadfastness and persistence in creating; their art serves as an essential expression of their experience of the world.
Public screenings of the Art in the Twenty-First Century series illuminate the creative processes of today’s visual artists in order to deepen audiences’ appreciation and understanding of contemporary art and ideas. This event is produced in collaboration with Art21, a nonprofit global leader in art education, producing preeminent films on today’s leading visual artists and education programs that inspire creativity worldwide.
