Upcoming new episodes

Two more new episodes remain our latest season, each set to premiere over the next two Fridays.

“Beijing” features artists Guan Xiao, Liu Xiaodong, Song Dong, Xu Bing, and Yin Xiuzhen. Amid Beijing’s dizzying economic, urban, and cultural transformation, four artists respond to the region’s relentless evolution with urgency and ambition, all the while contending with many centuries of Chinese cultural traditions.

“Beijing” airs Friday, September 25, starting at 10:00 p.m. ET.

“Borderlands” features artists Tanya Aguiñiga, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Richard Misrach, and Postcommodity. Set in the region between the United States and Mexico—long a site of political conflict, social struggle, and intense creative ferment—four artists respond to one of the most divisive moments in the history of this area.

“Borderlands” airs Friday, October 2, starting at 10:00 p.m. ET.

“A social and political context of pressing importance…steadily emerges. It makes the grouping of these three shows unusually well-timed.”
Christopher Knight, Los Angeles Times
