Put the kettle on and tidy the sitting room: Art21 is coming to your home this Friday evening with a new season of Art in the Twenty-First Century.
“London,” the season premiere episode, airs this Friday at 10:00 p.m. ET on PBS (check local listings).
Buoyed by London’s history of artistic excellence, the four artists in the “London” episode draw inspiration from decades of British art while contending with the repercussions of colonialism and xenophobia during a time of massive political upheaval in the country.
New episodes will premiere over the next three Fridays. See the episode guide for details on the new season.
