Art lovers, rejoice! There are so many podcasts out there that will satisfy your need for art. Here is a list of the best podcasts for 2021. Whether you’re interested in modern and contemporary art or want to learn about art history, these podcasts have what you’re looking for.
The Artmatcher Podcast
How could we not start with our own podcast? But seriously, you need to check out the Artmatcher podcast. The podcast is hosted by Michael Goodman or the Artmatcher team. He is also the owner of MRG Fine Art in LA. On the show, he talks with gallerists, artists, collectors, curators, teachers, investors, and anyone else making an impact on the art market. While we are new at this, we have already had on a great variety of cool guests like:
- Franklin Sirmans, Director of the Perez Art Museum
- Gareb Shamus, Founder of Ace Comic Con and Connective Artist
- Jeff Hamilton, NBA and Celebrity Jacket Designer
- Simon Needham, Wildlife photographer extraordinaire
Intersections: The Art Basel Podcast
While this is another new one we are really excited to see what the Art Basel team brings to the table. Pitched as a series that brings together leading artists, architects, gallerists, designers, musicians, and collectors to dive deep into their passion for art, it is sure not to disappoint.
The Week in Art
This podcast is sponsored by Christie’s and brought to you by the Art newspaper, so you can be sure it is dialed in to the latest trends. And that is exactly what it covers.
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.
Art History for All
Art history is one of those topics that isn’t for everyone and is best left to some to teach. With that in mind, we think the Art History for All team is doing a great job.
From art lovers to art haters to art-is-just-okay-ers, Art History for All aims to get all kinds of people thinking about art and what it means to them. In each episode, Allyson Healey tackles a single work of art and its history and larger significance, always asking the question: so what? Art History for All takes you beyond the art historical canon and helps you find the way in which art speaks to you (even if it’s never spoken to you before)
The Great Women Artists
Give the diversity and inclusion issues in art, we love the topic!
Created off the back of @thegreatwomenartists Instagram, this podcast is all about celebrating women artists. Presented by art historian and curator, Katy Hessel, this podcast interviews artists on their career, or curators, writers, or general art lovers, on the female artist who means the most to them.
Art Juice: A Podcast for Artists, Creatives and Art Lovers
At Artmatcher, we are looking to bring art to everyone, not just the insiders. For that reason, we love the focus on art lovers.
A podcast for artists, aspiring creatives, and art lovers. Two artists share their thoughts on art, life, and everything in between. Join Alice Sheridan and Louise Fletcher for honest, generous, and humorous conversations that will feed your creative soul AND get you thinking.
We think you will love these podcasts from the far reaches of the art world, but if we missed anything, let us know.
For now, tune in and be artful!
