Following last week’s season premiere episode, “London,” the second episode from the tenth season of Art in the Twenty-First Century is now available to stream.
Amid Beijing’s dizzying economic, urban, and cultural transformation, five artists respond to the region’s relentless evolution with urgency and ambition, all the while contending with many centuries of Chinese cultural traditions.
All segments streaming daily at 10:00 and 4:00 ET on Art21.live
Season finale airs this Friday
“Borderlands,” the final episode of the new season, 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.
