About The Art Assignment

The Art Assignment is an educational video series that explores art and art history through the lens of the present. Begun in 2014, the series comprises over 200 episodes that tackle a wide variety of subjects and share the work and approaches of a diverse range of artists. 

Created, written, and hosted by Sarah Urist Green, The Art Assignment explores ideas and questions about art (What is Art? and Love the Art, Hate the Artist), analyzes art news and events (The $150,000 Banana), and makes cases for artists and movements (Performance Art and Yoko Ono). The series also explores the eating and cooking lives of artists (Eat Like Andy Warhol), and takes trips to art capitals both expected and unexpected (VeniceMarfa, and Tijuana). We have a tremendous back catalogue of episodes that serve as a rich resource for educators, creators, and students of all ages and levels. 

Starting in August of 2020, the series is taking a break for creative renewal and reassessment, and then will publish new videos on a much slower basis (no more than 6 per year). Because of this, we have transitioned our account from "monthly" to "per episode" contribution. If you have been a monthly contributor (and we thank you for that), this new scenario will cost you much less per year. If at any point we decide to increase production, we will announce the news loudly and allow you time to adjust your support. 

Your support is still critically important to us! We greatly appreciate your contribution to this series, and to The Art Assignment community. Our series is a production of Complexly, which brings you other such educational series as Crash Course, SciShow, Origin of Everything, Eons, Journey to the Microcosmos, and many others.
