How does contemporary art address the idea of identity? How do artists working today reveal and question commonly held assumptions about stereotypes, self-awareness, portraiture, and what it means to be an artist? "Identity," an episode from the award-winning series "Art in the 21st Century," explores these questions through the work Louise Bourgeois, Maya Lin, Kerry James Marshall and Bruce Nauman with an introduction by William Wegman. The documentary includes profiles of the artists at work and speaking in their own words.
