In partnership with Art21 as part of its Access ’12 initiative, CAM presents two episodes from Season Six of the award-winning series Art in the Twenty-First Century, the only prime time national television series focused exclusively on contemporary art.

Art21 Access ’12 is an international screening initiative created to increase knowledge of contemporary art, ignite dialogue, and inspire creative thinking through hundreds of public screenings and events that tailor the ideas presented in series to the interests and concerns of local audiences. The season premiered on PBS April 13th with a new episode each Friday during April and May at 9 pm. Through in-depth profiles and interviews, the four-part series reveals the inspiration, vision and techniques behind the creative works of some of today’s most thought-provoking artists.

 
“Art21 Access ’12 provides an opportunity for organizations around the country and the world to experience a central goal of Art21 — dialogue inspired by contemporary art and the ideas it expresses.”
- Susan Sollins, Executive Producer of Art21.
