Why do artists do what they do, and how they do it?
Something To Do With Art is a podcast that explores and celebrates artistic creativity and experimentation. Seven brand new episodes are now live on SoundCloud, featuring conversations with artists Amanda Couch, Egidija Čiricaitė, Karen Frances Eng, Madi Acharya-Baskerville, MOOGZ, Matthew Chesney and Philip Harris.
In this series you can hear about hacking into a nuclear installation (legally) and making art from it (MOOGZ), divining the future using entrails (Amanda Couch), being in the naughty corner at an exhibition (Madi Acharya-Baskerville) and much more besides. Plus Matthew Chesney, director of Backlit Gallery Nottingham shares the importance of art and community, and why art is never more needed in the current times.
Starting next week, this blog will feature each artist in turn and I will share some thoughts about the episode and discuss some of my favourite moments and learning points. First up will be Amanda Couch.
