What role do intuition, emotion, fantasy, and escapism play in contemporary art? The "Art in the Twenty-First Century" documentary “Romance” explores these questions. “Romance” includes profiles of four artists at work and speaking in their own words. This episode explores the work of the artists Pierre Huyghe, Judy Pfaff, Lari Pittman, and Laurie Simmons. Visit http://www.art21.org/films for details about the episode, which aired on PBS in 2007.
The screening of "Romance" begins at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, February 3, in the upstairs studio at the Rowayton Arts Center. Following the screening, attendees are invited to join the free exhibition reception for “Expressions 2013” at 4:00 p.m. in the RAC Gallery.
