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.

We take an in-depth tour of the huge new William Blake exhibition at Tate Britain and explore the life and art of this brilliant yet complex visionary. And in New York, we talk to Marc Glimcher about Pace's eight-floor gallery in Chelsea and what this and the glut of other expanding galleries tell us about the market in New York.
