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 discuss the present and future of the art market, first with Rachel Pownall, a professor of finance at Maastricht University School of Business and Economics in the Netherlands, who specialises in the art market, and then with our market editors, Anna Brady and Margaret Carrigan. And in the latest in our series of lonely works, focusing on artworks behind the doors of museums that have closed due to the coronavirus, we talk to the artist Sean Scully about Matisse's 1915-16 painting The Moroccans, in the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
