Now entering its third decade on television, the globally-revered Art in the Twenty-First Century series provides unprecedented access to the leading creative minds of our time.

“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


For the first time in the show’s history, the filmmakers chronicle artists’ responses to an entire bi-national region, the U.S.-Mexico border, where artists create platforms for an assembly of voices to speak. In London and Beijing, artists contemplate disruptions caused by the rapidly changing political and architectural landscapes of their cities.
