"Contemporary art speaks directly to the important questions of our time, as well as to the changing landscape of identity. It is both a mirror of contemporary society and a window through which we view and deepen our understanding of life as it exists today. Who are today's artists? What are they thinking about? How do they describe their work? Why do they do what they do?" "These are some of the questions addressed in Art:21 Art in the Twenty-First Century 5, companion volume to the fifth season of the Emmy-nominated, Peabody Award-winning PBS series, which introduces fourteen artists who draw on a variety of subjects, experiences, and aesthetic influences to create their work. The book echoes the style and philosophy of the television series, presenting the artists without interpretive mediation through excerpts of interviews juxtaposed with illustrations of their work. Among the artists profiled are John Baldessari, Cao Fei, William Kentridge, Florian Maier-Aichen, Cindy Sherman, and Carrie Mae Weems." "Images of the artists culled from documentary footage provide a behind-the-scenes look into the creative process. In a rich mosaic, the artists are depicted at home, in the studio, and in the community - with collaborators, friends, and family - debunking the Romantic notion of the artist as an isolated genius. An intimate portrait, these visuals capture what Susan Sollins, Curator and Executive Producer of the Art:21 series, describes as the moment when "the makers - those who have allowed their own creativity to flow - look us directly in the eye."" "Throughout this volume the artists' varied and engaging voices speak to us directly - musing, analyzing, and laughing about their lives, work, and inspiration. As Kay Larson of the New York Times put it in a review of the series, "Artists may charm, irritate, instruct, entertain, confound. But they achieve their effectiveness ... just by being themselves ... They have identified what suits them, nurtures them and lets their lives expand. And they will tell you so at length if you invite them." In turn, their comments invite us to listen and look, to inquire more deeply, and most of all to enjoy and understand the richness and diversity of contemporary art." --Book Jacket

Contemporary art breaks out of the confines of museums and art galleries in Season 2 of "Art in the Twenty-First Century." Shattering the myth of the artist as an isolated genius, this unique series introduces television audiences to 16 artists working in America today. "Art in the Twenty-First Century" is the only series on television to focus exclusively on contemporary art, and it uses the medium to provide an experience of the visual arts that goes far beyond a gallery visit. 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 artistic visions
A Buddhist pilgrim at the shrines of Tibet by G. T︠S︡ T︠S︡ybikov( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tsybikov was the first scholar with a European education to visit Tibet and describe its monasteries and temples as an eyewitness traveler and an objective researcher. Tsybikov had two distinct advantages: an ethnic Buryat he could travel as a Buddhist pilgrim and thus have a chance of reaching its mysterious capital Lhasa, the religious and political center of Tibet, which was barred to outsiders, especially Europeans; as a scholar educated at a European university he had the historical and linguistic background to understand and describe what he saw. Tsybikov understood the secretive nature of the lama state and was careful to hide his work as a researcher. It was his journal that became the basis of A Buddhist Pilgrim at the Shrines of Tibet, which has both the vividness of a traveller's eyewitness account and the informed detachment of a scholar. As a record of both religious practices and the everyday life in Tibet before Chinese inroads during the twentieth century effaced that way of life, Tsybikov's book is a unique and invaluable snapshot of a lost culture"--Provided by publisher

"Contemporary art speaks directly to the important questions of our time as well as to the changing landscape of American identity. By making new ideas, current issues, and forgotten histories visible, living artists show us new perspectives about ourselves and the world around us. As a reflection of contemporary society, the art of our time is relevant to all subject areas and disciplines, and provides teachers and students a rich resource through which to consider new ideas and rethink the familiar. Each program opens with an introduction by a celebrity host (Jane Alexander, Margaret Cho, Merce Cunningham, or John Waters) who, while well known in each of their respective fields of filmmaking, music, and the theatre, is also passionate and knowledgeable about contemporary art. Each one-hour program has been curated like an art exhibition and is loosely structured around a theme that enables viewers, students, and teachers to analyze, compare, and contrast the featured artists and their works. The work presented in the series may cross the thematic boundaries of each program hour and have relevance to more than one theme. The Season Two themes are Stories, Loss & Desire, Humor, and Time."
