Providing unique access to some of the most compelling artists of our time, Season 7 features a dozen artists from the United States, Europe and Latin America, and transports viewers to artistic projects across the country and around the world. In locations as diverse as a Bronx public housing project, a military testing facility in the Nevada desert, a jazz festival in Sweden and an activist neighborhood in Mexico, the artists reveal intimate and personal insights into their lives and creative processes. Each episode is organized around a theme that connects the artists: "Investigation" (Oct. 24), "Secrets" (Oct. 31), "Legacy" (Nov. 7) and "Fiction" (Nov. 14).

"Secrets" - How do artists make the invisible visible? What hidden elements persist in their work? In this episode, Elliott Hundley, Trevor Paglen and Arlene Shechet share some of the secrets that are intrinsic to their work.
