Art Monthly's regular visual art discussion programme presented by Matt Hale and Chris McCormack broadcast by Resonance FM. Each month writers from the London-based contemporary art magazine discuss topics featured in the current issue.
Morgan Quaintance, Izabella Scott & Gwen Burlington
Morgan Quaintance, Izabella Scott & Gwen Burlington on the ever-widening gap in the UK art world between social, cultural and political realities; artists’ responses to the US’s denial of its colonial history; and the recent work of Irish artist Eimear Walshe.
Tom Denman & Sophie J Williamson
Tom Denman and Sophie J Williamson discuss artists who counteract paradigms of racial representation, and also those who reveal unspoken taboos in art through the intimacy of being with someone dying.
Mark Wilsher & Adam Heardman
Mark Wilsher and Adan Heardman consider the notion of presence in art during a pandemic and discuss Elizabeth Price’s Artangel video installation ‘Slow Dans’.
Amy Budd & Frances Whorrall-Campbell
Amy Budd & Frances Whorrall-Campbell on Onyeka Igwe’s work exploring her family’s Nigerian history, and the changing way that pandemics have been televised by artists, from Stuart Marshall’s Bright Eyes during the AIDS crisis in 1984 to Grayson Perry’s response to Covid-19, Grayson’s Art Club.
Bob Dickinson & Sophie J Williamson
Bob Dickinson & Sophie J Williamson discuss the home in art as a place of haunted obsession, and explore silence not as a retreat from the world but as a state from which to enact protest.
Morgan Quaintance, Khairani Barokka & John Douglas Millar
Morgan Quaintance, Khairani Barokka & John Douglas Millar discuss the current rush to online content and the failings of prescriptive commissioning policies, ableism in the art world, and new books by Olivia Laing and Paul B Preciado.
