Our top podcast picks
With more art-focused podcasts published than ever, we now have direct access to conversations with established artists, curators, historians and gallerists. With so many choices, it can be hard to know where to start. Time to plug in to some of our favourites.
- In Other Words. Hosted by Charlotte Burns, senior editor of Art Agency, Partners, this podcast provides everything you ever wanted to know about the art market. It features wide-ranging conversations with prominent curators, critics, collectors and advisers. Described by the Financial Times as "a leader in discussions spanning art, culture and the art market", this is one of the best and most informative arts podcasts around. Recent episodes include 'Art is about freedom' and 'Collaboration is the antidote to poison'.
- Art Curious. Art history is full of fascinating stories and host Jennifer Dasal wants to share the unexpected, the slightly odd, and the strangely wonderful to art lovers and novices alike. Jennifer brings art history’s most fascinating questions to light. For example: Did Van Gogh actually commit suicide? Was one British painter actually Jack the Ripper? And how did the rivalry between Michelangelo and Raphael produce one of the best works of art ever?
- The Great Women Artists. 26-year-old curator, writer and art historian Katy Hessel hosts a weekly podcast that celebrates women artists. Her goal is to redress the gender balance in the art world by replacing women of all backgrounds into the canon of art history. Katy interviews artists, curators, writers and general art lovers, on the female artist who means the most to them. She also hosts ‘Dior Talks’ - Dior's podcast on feminist art, where she has interviewed the likes of Tracey Emin and Judy Chicago.
- Last Seen. It remains the highest value and most confounding art heist in history - 13 artworks stolen from Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Twenty-eight years later, not a single piece in a haul worth half a billion dollars has surfaced. Both the art and the thieves who made off with it remain at large. With first-ever interviews, unprecedented access, and more than a year of investigative reporting, ‘Last Seen’ takes us into the biggest unsolved art heist in history.
