A fortnightly arts review podcast with an accessible approach. Art lovers and keen exhibition goers, we aim to open up fresh conversations on London's current art shows. Usually over a glass of wine... We're basically a book group, but we discuss art exhibitions instead of books.
Hosts: Laura Lennard, Caz Murray and Vikki Kosmalska
Special thanks to Nat Witts for our awesome jingle; and to Jonny Lennard, our brilliant Editor.

Episode 6: The Renaissance Nude at The Royal Academy discussed by Caz Murray, Vikki Kosmalska & Laura Lennard.Sending Nudes is all the rage these days, why not check out the Royal Academy's show for some Renaissance style inspo for your next shoot? Rumour has it a classical contrapposto stance can be very lengthening...Jokes aside, this riotous exhibition showcases 85 glorious Renaissance nudes and uses them as a lens through which to explore key themes of the period: from religious art to classical mythology; from patronage to advancements in artistic skill. So much of this exhibition surprised us: we discuss what Northern European artists such as Durer brought to the Renaissance; we explore whether deeply religious art can also be erotic, and we launch an impassioned appeal to bring back the cult of the male nude in art!The Renaissance greats are all there (Leonardo, Michelangelo, Titian, Raphael, Donatello...) but there is so much more beyond.This is the final episode of Series 2, but stay tuned to our feed for news of our summer specials.Thank you so much for listening, and please remember to 'Ask the Artcast' any art related questions you might have for us.
