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 look at the story behind the front-page article in our February issue: the discovery that a multi-million dollar Gauguin sculpture purchased by the Getty Museum in Los Angeles is actually not by the artist at all. Plus, we talk to the Canadian First Nations artist Kent Monkman about his monumental paintings at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York; and we look at an exhibition about art and food at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, UK.

The Art Newspaper Podcast is available every Friday on our website and all the usual places where you find podcasts including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, iTunes, Soundcloud and TuneIn.
