Ian J. Forster

Documentary Producer

I'm a New York City-based producer who specializes in artist documentaries. I've been at ART21 since October 2009, first working on the Peabody Award-winning film William Kentridge: Anything Is Possible and subsequently Season 6Season 7 and Season 8 of Art in the Twenty-First Century. In addition to my work on ART21's broadcast programming for PBS, I've overseen the online video series ART21 Exclusive since 2012, producing short artist portraits. I created the online video series ART21 Artist to Artist in 2013, which has since featured artists in conversation with their peers at international biennials in Italy, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, and the United States.

I graduated from the Newhouse School at Syracuse University with a B.S. in Television, Radio, and Film. I live in Brooklyn where I can often be found running or biking around Prospect Park.
