Art21's 'Change'

Take 55 minutes to view this opening-season episode, "Change", from Art21. The show features Los Angeles-based documentary photographer Catherine Opie, Ghanaian-born "found-object" sculptor El Anatsui (once you've seen his gorgeous work, you don't forget it), and Ai Weiwei, arguably China's most famous artist and human rights activist. Those unfamiliar with these artists will be well-rewarded by these personal profiles.
