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.

Is the dispute between Greece and the British Museum about the Parthenon Marbles about to escalate? A leaked draft of the EU mandate for talks with the UK about the post-Brexit relationship suggests it might. We look at the history of the marbles and what this new development means with expert Alexander Herman of the Institute of Art and Law. Plus, we talk to Shirin Neshat as she unveils her new work at Goodman Gallery in London, and update you on the top art stories of the week.

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. This podcast is brought to you in association with Bonhams, auctioneers since 1793 bonhams.com.
