The CityscapeStreaming Video - 2006
When artists worked in the service of the state, they glorified their cities and gave them imposing facades. But as the place of artists in society has matured over the centuries, artistic expression has became increasingly more penetrating. Beginning with the Renaissance, this program describes how visual artists have represented, deconstructed, and reconstructed the cityscape as they dealt with issues of spatial perspective, the delineation of public and private spaces, the depiction of city-dwellers singly and in groups, the portrayal of utopias and dystopias, and the distillation of the city into its most dynamic component: its rhythm.
