Today's artists expect more of their audiences than ever before, challenging us to explore a wide range of issues including politics, environmental and social concerns, narrative, gender, identity, language, and more. Their media are almost as wide ranging as their subjects, expanding well beyond traditional ideas of painting, sculpture, photography, and video. Explore work by artists including video artist Kelly Richardson, photographer Catherine Opie, sculptor/environmental artist Andy Goldsworthy and sculptor Alison Saar.
