A longtime home for political progressives and technological pioneers, the San Francisco Bay Area is a magnet for artists who are drawn to its experimental atmosphere, counter cultural spirit, and history of innovation. In addition to presenting three artists working across photography, installation, and new media, this episode features a nonprofit art center, spotlighting multiple artists with physical and cognitive disabilities who work in a range of mediums. The artists in this hour are united by their steadfastness and persistence in creating; their art serves as an essential expression of their experience of the world.
About The Art In The Twenty-First Century Series
The first and only nationally broadcast public television series to focus exclusively on contemporary visual art and artists, Art in the Twenty-First Century introduces audiences to a diverse range of established and emerging artists working today and to the art they are producing now. A biennial event for television, Art21 produces a series of one-hour episodes each season. Art in the Twenty-First Century is broadcast nationwide on PBS in the United States and is distributed internationally.
Through in-depth profiles and interviews, the series reveals the inspiration, vision, and techniques behind the creative works of some of today’s most accomplished contemporary artists. Art21 travels around the world to film contemporary artists—from painters and photographers to installation artists, video artists, and sound artists—in
their own spaces and in their own words. The result is a unique opportunity to experience
first-hand the complexity of the artistic processes—from inception to finished product—behind today’s most thought-provoking art.
This event is produced in collaboration with Art21, a nonprofit global leader in art education, producing preeminent films on today’s leading visual artists and education
programs that inspire creativity worldwide.
