4 Interesting Podcasts For The Artsy Minds
If your heart is all about art and you're always hopping in and out of art galleries and museums, here are four podcasts to fuel your obsession during the spaces in between.
The Modern Art Notes Podcast
Hosted by award-winning art critic and historian Tyler Green, this podcast includes hour-long conversations with artists, curators, authors and conservators each week. The most recent episode featured an interview with Naima J Keith on the postponement of the fifth Prospect triennial due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Art History Babes
Here's a podcast that could be compared to having an artsy discussion with your friends around glasses of wine. Hosted by four ladies who have published a book together, The Honest Art Dictionary, they delve into visual culture with a very conversational approach. The most recent episode is dedicated to post-mortem photographs, a mourning tradition popular during the Victorian era which Corrie, Jennifer, Natalie and Ginny describe as "infamously creepy".
The Lonely Palette
The Lonely Palette podcast discusses one painting at a time for each episode. Host Tamar Avishai chooses the painting, then goes and interviews museum visitors for perspective. She fills in the history and creation of the artwork as well as the social context, movement and everything else.
This podcast explores the unexpected, slightly odd and strangely wonderful narratives in art history. To name a few topics covered by the podcast: Was Van Gogh accidentally murdered? Is the Mona Lisa fake? Rivals of Picasso VS Matisse. Quite the curiosity, right? With a total of eight seasons at the moment, it’s time for curious art minds out there to feed their wonders.
