Season 1 (2001):

How does contemporary art address the idea of identity? How do artists working today reveal and question commonly held assumptions about stereotypes, self-awareness, portaiture, and what it means to be an artist? The "Art in the Twenty-First Century" documentary “Identity” explores these questions through the work of the artists William Wegman, Bruce Nauman, Kerry James Marshall, Maya Lin, and Louise Bourgeois.
