Art:21 Season 5



Over the past ten years, Art21 has established itself as the preeminent chronicler of contemporary art and artists through its Peabody Award-winning biennial television series Art:21—Art in the Twenty-First Century. It is one of my favorite PBS series and I am so excited that they are back with their fifth season!

It will premiere on Wednesday, October 7 at 10:00 p.m. (ET) on PBS, with three additional one-hour episodes airing over the next three consecutive Wednesdays: October 14, 21 and 28 (check local listings). Through in-depth profiles and dynamic behind-the-scenes footage featuring artists speaking directly about their inspirations and ideas, Season Five shows a broad range of artistic practice, technical innovation, and experimentation, from artists tackling large-scale collaborative projects in hangar-like studios, to those working in the quiet of more intimate studio settings.

Get Involved:

Art21 invites you to host a preview screening of Season 5, before it premieres on PBS, at your local museum, high school, library, university, art space, or community organization as part of Art21 Access ’09. Sign up here!
