"There are a number of things that set Southern artists apart from anyone else. … Their obsession with place and their obsession with family." —Sally Mann

In a new episode from the ART21 Exclusive series, photographer Sally Mann reflects on the life of Virginia Franklin Carter (1894–1994)—a woman who helped raise the artist and her two brothers in Lexington, Virginia. “My parents were important but Virginia may have been the single most important person in my life,” says Mann in the episode, who named her youngest daughter after Carter.

What Will Come (2007)—which is about the Italian-Ethiopian war of the 1930s—works on the principle that what is distorted in the projection gets corrected in the viewer’s seeing of it in a mirror. So the distortion is the correction and the original is the distorted.”
—William Kentridge

Today, we join Tyler Green—along with a number of other art blogs and websites—in spotlighting the important works found in the collections at the Detroit Institute of Arts.

Seen here is William Kentridge’s anamorphic film, What Will Come (2007), as featured in two Art21 films: Compassion (2009) and William Kentridge: Anything Is Possible (2010). The work is included in the collection at the Detroit Institute of Arts, acquired by the museum in 2008.
