Art21: Magazine

While probably best known for their PBS documentary series Art in the Twenty First Century (mentioned in the June 16, 2017 Scout Report), Art21 has produced a variety of digital media, including a quarterly magazine, launched in 2007 as the Art21 Blog, which became the Art21 Magazine in 2013 in a shift from guest contributor posts to theme-centered quarterly issues. "Becoming An Artist" was treated in the inaugural issue, October/November 2013, with videos by Nancy Spero, An-My L, Jessica Stockholder, Yinka Shonibare, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and Ursula von Rydingsvard, discussing how they first came to regard art as their occupation. A related theme appeared in the Fall 2018 Being An Artist issue, where Lucia Hierro and William Kentridge (the subject of Art21s feature film, William Kentridge: Anything Is Possible, 2009) discuss the impact of their family backgrounds and culture on their path to becoming artists. In addition to theme-centered work, Art21 Magazine features a variety of regular columns, such as "Teaching with Contemporary Art," where artist-educators share their approaches to instruction. Visitors to the site can also subscribe to feeds of video, education, and guest blog posts.
