A fortnightly arts review podcast with an accessible approach. Art lovers and keen exhibition goers, we aim to open up fresh conversations on London's current art shows. Usually over a glass of wine... We're basically a book group, but we discuss art exhibitions instead of books. Hosts: Laura Lennard, Caz Murray and Vikki KosmalskaSpecial thanks to Nat Witts for our awesome jingle; and to Jonny Lennard, our brilliant Editor.
Episode 2: Steve McQueen at the Tate Modern discussed by Caz Murray, Vikki Kosmalska and Laura Lennard
Join us discussing the major Tate retrospective of the artist and film director Steve McQueen.
Episode 1: Radical Figures at The Whitechapel Gallery
The Whitechapel Gallery is looking to overturn art criticism’s 1980s declaration that ‘painting is dead’. The gallery has presented a case for painting’s ‘radical’ relevance within the contemporary art canon, showcasing the work of 10 painters of varied nationalities and styles to make their point. But did our intrepid reviewers, Caz and Vikki, buy either painting’s relevance or it’s radicalism? The exhibition got us questioning: what does it truly mean to be radical? What can painting as a medium bring the contemporary viewer that other mediums of art cannot? Is it even appropriate to suggest painting is dead in the first place? In other news we share a cautionary tale about getting too close to artworks (largely for Vikki’s benefit) and keen readers will have already clocked that the Artcast team is a trio once more.

Such a brilliant podcast
Love this podcast! Really enjoyed the discussion which is lively, chatty and interesting but at the same time gave me a lot to think about. It’s inspired me to get out to more exhibitions.
