Art Highlights

  • Hondros: In the aftermath of 9/11, award-winning Getty Images conflict photographer Chris Hondros became driven by a commitment to capturing the agony of war.
  • Blurred Lines: Inside the Art World: A vivid picture of an economy that runs contrary to any rules and regulations while laying bare a system that has converted canvases into commodities.
  • More Art Upstairs: Part classy game show, part engaging art exploration, More Art Upstairs captures the debates ArtPrize has intentionally (or inadvertently?) triggered: Can culture be democratized? Do artists need or want to connect with audiences? And is the canonical art establishment on its way out?
