Talk Art: Everything You Wanted To Know About Contemporary Art but Were Afraid To Ask

Hachette Audio. May 2021. 5:43 hrs. ISBN 9781797214498. $28.69. ARTS
With this title, actor and art collector Tovey and gallerist Diament, cohosts of the Talk Art podcast, aim to make contemporary art accessible and fun for everyone. The authors discuss topics such as navigating the art world, starting your own collection, making your own art, photojournalism, the connections between art and politics, and more, all with infectious enthusiasm. They do openly acknowledge that women and people of color have traditionally been excluded from the art world. The work also includes interviews with artists and art enthusiasts including Jordan Casteel, Tracey Emin, Elton John, Billy Porter, and Rose Wylie. With its relatively short length, wide range of topics, and narration by the two experienced podcast hosts, this audiobook is ideal for anyone curious about the contemporary art world.
VERDICT Recommended for all public library collections.
