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.

This week, in our last episode of this series, we look at the top exhibitions you can see this summer in the UK, Europe and the US, with Anna Brady and Gareth Harris joining Ben Luke in London, and Helen Stoilas, Nancy Kenney and Jillian Steinhauer in New York. We also reflect on the anxieties and ethics of visiting galleries as Covid-19 remains widespread.

The album cover for Doctor Alimantado’s 1978 debut The Best Dressed Chicken in Town

And we have our usual Work of the Week, this time chosen by the artist Hassan Hajjaj, who looks at an album cover—Doctor Alimantado’s 1978 debut The Best Dressed Chicken in Town—and discusses how it influenced his own photography. Hajjaj's exhibition The Path is on show at Arnolfini in Bristol until 1 November.

The Week in Art podcast by The Art Newspaper is available every Friday on our website and all the usual places where you find podcasts. This podcast is brought to you in association with Christie's.
