Loyola hosts preview of upcoming PBS art show

October 9, 2009

The Loyola University New Orleans Department of Visual Arts will host a preview screening and discussion panel for the upcoming PBS show “Systems.” “Systems” is part of “Art:21,” a four-show series that airs throughout October.

The preview takes place Thursday, Oct. 15, at 5 p.m., in the Monroe Library’s Multimedia Room 2. The event is free and open to the public.

“The show is oriented toward conceptual questions and the deployment of sign-systems in visual contexts,” said Simeon Hunter, chairman of the visual arts department.

According to its website, “Art:21–Art in the Twenty-First Century” is the only series on television to focus exclusively on contemporary visual art and artists in the United States. Fascinating and intimate footage allows the viewer to observe the artists at work, watch their process as they transform inspiration into art, and hear their thoughts as they grapple with the physical and visual challenges of achieving their visions.
