Season 8 of “Art in the Twenty-First Century”

by Art21March 21, 2023 3:02:18 total runtime

Watch each of the sixteen full segments from Season 8 of Art21’s Peabody Award-winning Art in the Twenty-First Century series.

Season 8 artists are grouped by the unique and revealing relationships to the places where they live: Chicago, Los Angeles, Mexico City, and Vancouver. The artists share universal experiences through their life stories and creative works: resistance, pleasure, mortality, and the hope for a better tomorrow.

Season 8 showcases the geography, architecture, society, culture, and heritage of each location, highlighting aspects of contemporary life that viewers everywhere experience. The season features 16 artists, each of whom actively participate in global conversations about the pressing issues of our time: from terrorism to environmental crises to the struggle for civil rights.

Season 8 premiered in September 2016 on PBS.
