Episode 3 of the PBS series "Art: 21" will be screened this Wednesday night, November 11 at 7 pm downtown at the UW Art Department's new gallery space, Gallery 211.

This episode, Systems, features artists who realize complex projects through acts of appropriation or accumulation. In some instances, they create projects vast in scope, which almost elude comprehension. Artists invent new processes to convey the attitudes of today’s supercharged, information-based society, examining why we find comfort in some systems while rebelling against others.

Screenings of Art:21 are co-hosted by the UW Art Department and the UW Art Museum. They are free and open to the public. Episode 4, Transformation, will be shown next Wednesday, November 18.

For more information, call the Art Museum at 307.766.6622 or the Art Department at 307.766.3269.
