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).

"Legacy" - Why do we break with some traditions and perpetuate others? Tania Bruguera, Abraham Cruzvillegas and Wolfgang Laib use life experiences and family heritage to explore new aesthetic terrain.
