SAN MARCOS—The Arts and Culture Lecture Series at Texas State University-San Marcos will host a preview screening for the new season of Art:21, the PBS television series on contemporary art on Sept. 8.
The preview screening, which is free and open to the public, will be held 11 a.m.-12:15 p.m. on the second floor of the Joann Cole Mitte Art Building, room 2121, on the Texas State campus.
The preview will feature an episode that focuses on memory. Introduced by film star Isabella Rossellini, it explores the art of Hiroshi Sugimoto, Susan Rothenberg, Josiah McElheney, and Mike Kelley. Like all episodes of Art:21 this season, it will include a new video artwork by Teresa Hubbard and Alexander Birchler commissioned especially for this series.
This event kicks off the annual Texas State Arts and Culture Lecture Series. Other events in this autumn’s lecture series include talks and film screenings by artists Karen Bernstein, Jeffrey Dell, Heather Johnson, and Liz Ward.
