Our first season of new films for 2020 arrives today, and I am thrilled to share these new stories with you. The season kicks off with a film from our New York Close Up series featuring Jacolby Satterwhite, which finds the artist dealing with regeneration, healing, and resurrection. Go ahead and give it a watch today.
Over the last few months, our team has filmed across studio spaces, galleries, and city streets to bring you the five films in this first season. In the months ahead, we’ll be releasing new films featuring Hiwa K, Meriem Bennani, Krzysztof Wodiczko, and Bryan Zanisnik.
This winter season is just the beginning of our incredible year film programming. In addition to two more seasons still to come in the spring and fall, this year also marks the return of our celebrated Art in the Twenty-First Century series—its tenth season! More on that to come in the months ahead.
We feel a sense of urgency now to tell artists’ stories. In a world easily thrown out of balance, artists and their ideas guide us through today’s challenges if we look and listen close enough.
I hope that today’s release brings you great inspiration, and I cannot wait for you to enjoy all five stories in our winter season.
