We are four good friends who met while completing a Masters in Contemporary Art in London, we hope to offer an alternative and laidback approach to a seemingly impenetrable world.

Our topics will range from a casual conversation on the very fundamentals of art, focusing on particular artists and explaining different concepts. We aren’t limited to a particular time period, focusing both on art history and contemporary art. We hope to elaborate on arts impact on current events, culture and society - all while answering why art is important.

    S2 EP 1: Spotlight on Yayoi Kusama

    S2 EP 1: Spotlight on Yayoi Kusama

    Chart is back. Yes, you read right. WE ARE BACK for a second season of your favorite art podcast ever. And what better way of starting a new chapter than with a spotlight of one of the greatest contemporary artists. Yayoi Kusama is one of the most visionary artists of all time, pioneering the exploration of themes such as sexual identity and mental health in a time where these things were either taboo or very rarely discussed. Despite a harsh upbringing in an unhappy household with a physically abusive mother, Kusama grew up to become one of the most important artists of the 20th century, her studio sharing building with those of Donald Judd and Eva Hesse in the 1960s, during which she worked on her arguably best known series: Mirror/Infinity. If you’d love to know more and can’t wait to hear our beautiful voices again (specially Finn’s), tune in and have a blast!

    EP53: Haunted art stories

    Start of the episode  05:00


     


    Some may say that we are late for releasing an episode about ghost stories in late April, but we at Chart like to think that we are actually early for this year’s Halloween. That is right, we are the fastest spook in the west, and as such today we bring you four paintings that are reported to be haunted and around which supernatural phenomena has been witnessed by many, in some occasions, to deadly effect. So get out your candles, sit tight and enjoy the ride in Chart Podcast’s first ever Horror Week (but it shan’t be the last, mwaa haaa haaa…)
