“Beijing” features artists Guan Xiao, Liu Xiaodong, Song Dong, Xu Bing, and Yin Xiuzhen.

“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.
