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.

Two-thirds of artists in the UK earn less than £5,000 per year from their art, according to a new survey. We speak to the art advisor James Doeser who worked on the study and the artist Tai Shani about the bleak reality of working as an artist in Britain today. Then, as the inaugural Frieze Los Angeles gets underway, our correspondent Jori Finkel discusses whether Frieze will succeed where other fairs have failed. This year's Desert X exhibition in Palm Springs is also reviewed.

The Art Newspaper Weekly podcast is available every Friday on our website and all the usual places where you find podcasts including iTunes, Soundcloud and TuneIn. This podcast is brought to you in association with Bonhams, auctioneers since 1793. Find what defines you. bonhams.com/define
