Podcasts and more

This might be a Visual Arts blog, but are you fed up with looking at computer screens for your art fix? Podcasts and other sounds are a great way of engaging with art and exhibitions at the moment as lockdown continues and galleries and museums remain closed. Take some timeout from looking and have a listen instead.

Here are a few places you can find them:


The Photographers Gallery, including ‘Exploring Black British Culture’

The David Zwirner Podcast, including Diana Thater and Rachel Rose

Somerset House, series from the recent ’24/7′ exhibition

The Drawing Room, including ‘The End of Human Magic’

Serpentine Gallery, including ‘Back To Earth’ series

Tate Gallery, including ‘Where Does Time go?’

BFI, ‘Girls On Film’ looking at film from a female perspective

V&A, including a guide of the recent Tim Walker exhibition

Art UK Art Matters podcasts, including the beauty in beasts, a guide to animals in art

Iniva, Cheraine Donalea Scott discusses grime, politics and punk, while delving into the library’s collection



Among The Trees playlist from Hayward Gallery

British Library Sounds, including ‘Sounds of your World’


Participate in:

Libraries as Gardens – sound recordings of people reading during quarantines and memories of gardens they have visitied (deadline end of June 2020)

Cities and memories, sounds from the global lockdown, send in sounds from where you are.
