Art21 is pleased to announce a series of digital screening opportunities and public artist talks to accompany the release of the new season of its Peabody Award-winning and Emmy-nominated television series, Art in the Twenty-First Century. The landmark tenth season is presented in three episodes, charting artmaking in London, Beijing, and regions around the United States-Mexico border.

Screening Society
In conjunction with the premiere of the new season, Art21 will partner with organizations around the world to present free community screenings as part of its long-running Screening Society program.

Screening Society is an international free screening initiative created to increase knowledge of contemporary art, spark dialogue, and inspire creative thinking for a global audience. Art21 invites a wide variety of partners—schools, universities, libraries, museums, nonprofit organizations, galleries, arts and cultural spaces, community centers, and more—to host screenings from the latest season of Art in the Twenty-First Century that are free and open to the public. Screenings will take place from October 3, 2020 to January 31, 2021.

In response to on-going safety measures, Art21 reimagined the 2020 edition of Screening Society as a digital-first experience. Art21 provides all Screening Society partners with a toolkit containing helpful information for hosting a screening, including a guide designed to help facilitate a public event through discussion questions and group activities.

Interested partners can sign up to be notified when registration opens here.

Special events
As an extension of the narratives explored in the new season, Art21 will host a series of digital screenings and talks joined by artists from each of the three new episodes. All programs are free and open to the public with registration.

The first event takes place on Monday, September 21, at 1pm EST, presenting "London"-featured artist Phyllida Barlow in conversation with Daniel Baumann, Director of Kunsthalle Zurich. Additional events throughout the fall will include artists from the "Beijing" and "Borderlands" episodes.

Details and registration are available here.
