our Youtube channel for further viewing. Please feel free to share widely with your communities and networks, and anyone who may be interested in our programming.

Song Dong & Yin Xiuzhen

"Art isn’t about making objects, its about the process… how you spend your time. It’s an attitude towards life.” - Yin Xiuzhen

This week's featured artists are Beijing-based Song Dong and Yin Xiuzhen. They have independent practices, but are married and often collaborate. Art21's newest season features a lovely 16-minute short about both their work together and apart. I found myself very moved watching it. I think it captures something about this moment - the building and destruction of cities, the control of space as a coping mechanism for grief, the magic of art, connecting with our loved ones even when we can't physically be around them. If you watch one thing this week, watch this. Get a cup of coffee and commit to dropping in for those 16 minutes. I took a few minutes after engaging this video to journal a bit and read a little bit more about their work. I'm not sure how long the video will be up on Art21's page, so don't miss it!
