"Art isn't a material, it's not a medium—it's not a certain product. It is the choices I've been able to make."

Liz Magor

Acclaimed Canadian artists and Emily Carr alumni Stan Douglas, Brian Jungen and Liz Magor are featured in Season 8 of the PBS documentary series ART21, Art in the Twenty-First Century.

ART21 is a celebrated global leader in presenting thought-provoking and sophisticated content about contemporary art, and the go-to place to learn first-hand from the artists of our time. A nonprofit organization, ART21’s mission is to inspire a more creative world through the works and words of contemporary artists.

For its eighth season, debuting September 16, award-winning actress Claire Danes joins the Peabody Award-winning documentary television series as its broadcast host. For the first time in the show's history, the episodes are not organized around an artistic theme. Instead the 16-featured artists are grouped by their unique and revealing relationships to the places where they live: Chicago, Los Angeles, Mexico City, and Vancouver.

The Vancouver segment premieres September 23, 2016 on PBS. Check your local listings for air times.
