One of the current exhibits at Washington University's Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum is On the Margins, a show that features the work of ten artists from around the globe who contemplate today's political and social landscapes. To complement their artworks, the museum is offering a screening of "Protest," an episode from the fourth season of the PBS documentary series Art:21 — Art in the Twenty-First Century. This program highlights contemporary visual artists, and each episode follows a different theme. "Protest" examines how topics including war and genocide affect the work of Alfredo Jaar (a still from his Muxima is pictured), Jenny Holzer, An-My Lê and Nancy Spero. To catch the screening, head to the Steinberg Hall auditorium on the campus of Wash. U. (Forsyth and Skinker boulevards) at 6 p.m. Viewing "Protest" is free, as is checking out On the Margins (this show is up through Monday, April 21). Learn more information about both by calling 314-935-4523 or visiting www.kemperartmuseum.wustl.edu.
