Join us for a free screening to celebrate the newest season of ART21 Art in the Twenty-First Century, the award-winning documentary series that showcases contemporary art and artists.

The episode “Secrets” examines how artists make the invisible visible. What hidden elements persist in artists’ work? Is it the artist’s role to reveal them, or not? Featured in this episode is artist Trevor Paglen, who completed a residency project at the List in 2011 which culminated in the project The Last Pictures; for more information about the project, click here. Discover the work of artists Elliot Hundley and Arlene Shechet, as well.

This event is part of ART21 Access ‘14, a worldwide initiative providing unprecedented access to contemporary artists through preview screenings of ART21 Art in the Twenty-First Century Season 7. ART21 is a nonprofit organization dedicated to making the world a more creative place through the work and words of living artists.
