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.

In the second episode of our summer season of curated podcasts, we look back on three interviews, from 2018 and earlier this year, focusing on climate change and the anthropocene. Olafur Eliasson, whose retrospective at Tate Modern has just opened, talks about his project Ice Watch and his climate activism, and another artist, Justin Brice Guariglia, argues that responding to the climate crisis is the moral imperative of our age. Finally, Anna Somers Cocks, the founder of The Art Newspaper, discusses the grave threat posed by rising sea levels to heritage in Europe and particularly around the Mediterranean.
