In addition to its flagship PBS-broadcast series, Art in the Twenty-First Century, Art21 produces short-form documentary series, viewable on multiple digital platforms.

The Extended Play digital series provides unmediated, behind-the-scenes access to the world’s leading contemporary artists. The New York Close Up series provides an intimate look at artists in the first decade of their professional career, living and working in New York City. The Artist to Artist series features artists in conversation with their peers in shared exhibition settings.

Art21’s first feature film, William Kentridge: Anything Is Possible, premiered in national primetime on PBS in October 2010. This one-hour film received a Peabody Award in March 2011 and has been broadcast internationally since its premiere.
