The Week in Art

From breaking news and insider insights to exhibitions and events around the world, the team at The Art Newspaper picks apart the art world’s big stories with the help of special guests. An award-winning podcast hosted by Ben Luke, The Week in Art is sponsored by Christie’s.

The podcast is available on our website and all the usual places where you find podcasts including iTunes, Stitcher, Soundcloud and TuneIn.

In the podcast

  • Billed as Africa’s first major contemporary art museum, Zeitz Mocaa is entirely privately funded, but the level of its ambition in every aspect of its operations—from collection building and programming to fundraising and governance—sets it apart from the scores of private institutions that have opened around the world in recent years. The Art Newspaper's editor-at-large-Cristina Ruiz tells us all about it.

  • Cristina is joined by Jane Morris, The Art Newspaper's former editor, to discuss the must-see shows of the autumn season in London. They include the Royal Academy's Jasper Johns and Dali/Duchamp, the Barbican's Basquiat survey and Gino De Dominicis at Luxembourg and Dayan.
