BRATTLEBORO- On Friday, April 5, at 8:30 pm, after Brattleboro’s popular monthly Gallery Walk, the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center presents a free screening of “Fantasy,” a one-hour documentary on contemporary art. Part of the PBS series “Art in the 21st Century,” or Art21, “Fantasy” delves into the work of Jeff Koons, Mary Heilmann, Florian Maier-Aichen, and Cao Fei, exploring such questions as how desires and taboos shape our ability to imagine, and the role of technology in wish fulfillment.

“We plan to show a different Art21 documentary each month after Gallery Walk, for the foreseeable future,” said BMAC director Danny Lichtenfeld. The screenings will be free, and each documentary will focus on a different theme and group of artists. Lichtenfeld noted that the mission of Art21, “to engage audiences with contemporary visual art, inspire creative thinking, and educate a new generation about artists working today,” is precisely in line with the work of BMAC. “We think our community will benefit from, and just plain enjoy these compelling films,” he added.
