ART 21 - ART IN THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY is the only television series that focuses exclusively on contemporary visual art and artists in the United States.
Intimate film footage allows the viewer to observe the artists at work, watch their process as they transform creative ideas into art, and listen to their thoughts as they grapple with the challenges of achieving their artistic visions. Each episode is loosely structured around a theme: Romance, Protest, Ecology, and Paradox.

1. Romance - This episode features artists whose works are extended meditations on mortality, love, reality and make-believe. The artists: Laurie Simmons, a feature film creator; Lari Pitman, painter; Judy Pfaff, sculptor; Pierre Huyghe, films, installations, events.

2. Protest - How do artists engage politics, inequality, and the many conflicts that besiege the world today? How do artists use their work to discuss or oppose misery, turmoil, and injustice? The artists: Nancy Spero, painter; An-My Le, landscape photographer; Alfredo Jaar, photography; Jenny Holzer, paintings and print.

3. Ecology - This episode delves into the work of four artists who explore the relationship of nature and culture, the impact of technology on biology, and our relationship to the earth. The artists: Ursula von Rydingsvard, sculptor; Inigo Manglano-Ovalle, sculptor; Mark Dion, found objects formed into installations; Robert Adams, photographer.

4. Paradox - Here the artists investigate the boundaries between abstraction and representation, fact and fiction, order and chaos. Artists: Mark Bradford, collage; Catherine Sullivan, filmmaking; Robert Ryman, painter; Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla, mix of sculpture, photography, performance, sound and video.
