Chart is back. Yes, you read right. WE ARE BACK for a second season of your favorite art podcast ever. And what better way of starting a new chapter than with a spotlight of one of the greatest contemporary artists. Yayoi Kusama is one of the most visionary artists of all time, pioneering the exploration of themes such as sexual identity and mental health in a time where these things were either taboo or very rarely discussed. Despite a harsh upbringing in an unhappy household with a physically abusive mother, Kusama grew up to become one of the most important artists of the 20th century, her studio sharing building with those of Donald Judd and Eva Hesse in the 1960s, during which she worked on her arguably best known series: Mirror/Infinity.

Start of the episode  05:00   Some may say that we are late for releasing an episode about ghost stories in late April, but we at Chart like to think that we are actually early for this year’s Halloween.

So get out your candles, sit tight and enjoy the ride in Chart Podcast’s first ever Horror Week (but it shan’t be the last, mwaa haaa haaa…)   For email enquiries: chart podcastgmail.com Make sure to follow us on our socials!  INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/chartpodcast/  Here you can see on which different platforms you can listen to our podcasts! https://pod.link/1517293067  That's it for now!

Start of the episode - 05:08 NFT's - 48:56 Today Chart has the privilege of being in conversation with one of our professors from Sotheby’s Institute of Art: Dr. David Bellingham. Even though he only taught some of us for our elective period during the final months of the MA, we were all inspired by his wisdom and inquisitive nature. His passion for both classical and contemporary art has turned into an insatiable desire to stay aware and informed about the constant changes and developments in the art world. As a consequence, today we will not only chat with him about where his passion for Old Masters comes from and their relevance to contemporary artists, but also his thoughts on what NFTs mean for the art world and how they might affect it in the coming years.

Timestamp for the episode: 8:30 Those who claim that superheroes having secret identities that nobody can figure out is unrealistic, they should check out the artist that chART will talk about in this week’s episode. Banksy is the pseudonym of an England-based artist (or group of artists, as some conspiracy theorists claim) whose real identity remains a secret since they became active in the 1990s. Although their journey began as a graffiti artist, Banksy has transcended to several other mediums and disciplines, going as far as being nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature in 2011 for Exit Through the Gift Shop (2010), as well arranging the installation of Disneyland’s dark amusement park twin, Dismaland, in 2015. There is plenty more to be learned about this mysterious and fascinating figure, so be sure to tune in for this week’s episode!

Today, chART offers you a spotlight on yet another member of the Young British Artists. Sarah Lucas was, according to many, the wildest of the generation, a constant source of shocking and provocative art that was, in many ways, ahead of her time. Her use of bawdy humor and visual puns is just the façade of a deeper message of sex and gender deconstruction. Her artworks constantly attack stereotypes and expectations, challenging the viewer to see them in the outside world for themselves once the exhibition is over. To learn more about her fascinating production, tune in to this week’s episode!    For email enquiries: chart podcastgmail.com Make sure to follow us on our socials!  INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/chartpodcast/  Here you can see on which different platforms you can listen to our podcasts! https://pod.link/1517293067  That's it for now!

Timestamp for the start of the episode: 11:30 Art historians and academics often agree that three artist defined the turn of the 20th century in art history. This trio was Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso and Marcel Duchamp, the latter being the subject of this week’s chART episode. Born in France in 1887, Duchamp showed great interest to join the avant-garde from a very early age. His 1912 painting Nude Descending A Staircase No. 2 was an unusual blend of cubism and futurism, and many consider his installation The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even (1925-1923) as the first conceptual artwork. However, we would be immortalized by his Fountain (1917) piece, a urinal that arched more than a few eyebrows in the art world. But as we say in chART, he was much more than just a toilet, so if you want to learn more about this misunderstood genious, tune into our new episode!  For email enquiries: chart podcastgmail.com Make sure to follow us on our socials!  INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/chartpodcast/  Here you can see on which different platforms you can listen to our podcasts! https://pod.link/1517293067  That's it for now!

Episode timestamp 12:19 Today, the chart squad felt like trying new things, so we would like to inaugurate a new series of videos in our podcast where we review art related movies. Our inaugural choice? None other than Dan Gilroy’s Velvet Buzzsaw! Released in 2019, it is a satirical horror movie about the moral and physical consequences for everyone involved after a blue chip gallery in L.A. decides to sell the work of a deceased artist against his last will. Backstabbing, intrigue, love, deception… Anything can happen behind the scenes of the glamorous art world. However, how much of it is fiction and what is actually pretty realistic? We will let you know this and more in this week’s episode!

Time stamp to jump straight into the episode 6:26  In 1969, NASA made history when they put the first man on the Moon. What? Pics or it didn’t happen? Well, luckily for you, there actually are quite a few pictures form the Apollo 11 mission to demonstrate that Neil Armstrong was, in fact, up there on that silvery sphere. And luckily for us, there is an expert photographer in the ranks of Chart who knows everything about the technicalities of how it was possible for the astronauts to take these pictures in an environment as hostile and destructive as the surface of the Moon. So join in today’s episode to hear it all about how the Apollo 11 crew took the pics that show that Stanley Kubrick did not film the Moon landing on the Nevada Desert!   For email enquiries: chart podcastgmail.com Make sure to follow us on our socials!

In today’s episode, the Chart squad (Javier specially) has the pleasure to introduce you to the artist you didn’t know you needed to know: Stanislaw Szukalski. Born in 1893, he enrolled in the Chicago Institute of Art a prodigy at only 13 years of age. After graduating he made a name for himself in Paris, where he participated in the 1925 International Exhibition of Modern and Decorative Arts. He seemed like your average chap until 1940, when he started a 40-year-long journey to develop a pseudo-scientific theory called Zermatism. Long story short, humanity originated in the post-deluge Easter Island and had to battle the descendants of the Yeti throughout history. Yeah, you read right. Surely you can’t wait to learn more about one of the craziest and most beautiful minds in the history of art, so tune into this week’s episode!   For email enquiries: chart podcastgmail.com   Make sure to follow us on our socials!

When you think about Raphael’s work, you probably picture all the virtues of a Renaissance old master: beauty, elegance, dexterity… Well, that is definitely not what the seven members of the 1848 Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood had to say about him. In fact, they would most likely call him a corrupting influence in the way academies taught art from that point on in history. The remedy they proposed? A short-lived, yet influential art movement that sought to return to the spirituality, abundant detail, intense colors and complex compositions of the Italian Quattrocento (15th century). Although the Brotherhood was dissolved by 1851, their principles lived on to inspire future generations of artists. Wanna learn more?

Back in the 14th century some Italian visionary invented canvas, and though it grew to become the main support medium for painting, it took a while for artists to wrap their heads around it, used as they were to wooden panels. Well, a very similar thing is happening nowadays with cryptoart! The late 2010s saw the emergence of a niche genre for purely digital art works that can be bought, sold and collected through blockchain networks. What is a blockchain network? Long story short: a transaction ledger for a cryptocurrency (Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc.) What does this mean and why is it a game changer for the art world? No more paperwork for sellers! You see a work you like, you press “buy”, and hallelujah it’s yours. If you wanna learn more about the wonders of cryptography, tune in for this week’s episode!

Last week we hit you with a Saint Valentine’s special that featured three works titled The Kiss, one of them by Romanian artist Constantin Brâncusi. Well, if that was your favorite one, then today is your lucky day, because this week’s episode is a spotlight on Brâncusi! Considered one of the pioneers of modernism, Brâncusi jumped on board the primitive esotericism train together with the greatest artists of the turn of the 20th century (Picasso, Gauguin, etc.) to produce sculptures defined by an emphasis on geometric lines and materials used. The Kiss is just one of the many incredible artworks he produced during his lifetime. Wanna learn more?

EP 42: The Kiss

2021-02-1149:05

The act of kissing is a bond shared by the vast majority of cultures on this planet.

Given that Saint Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, we at Chart thought it would be a great idea to show you just a few examples. So buckle up and get ready for Mara to tell you all about The Kiss, The Kiss, and The Kiss from three of history’s greatest artists! Which is which? Which is better? Tune in to find out!

Although Sandro Botticelli mustn’t’ve been cool enough to have a Ninja Turtle named after him, he certainly was one of the most influential old masters of the Italian Renaissance. Not only was he one of the painters that participated in decorating the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican; he was also a key influence behind Neo-Platonism in the arts during his lifetime, as well as one of the artists whose legacy contributed to the creation of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in the late 19th century. His most famous work, The Birth of Venus (mid-1480s), is one of the most celebrated paintings of art history. Wanna learn more about it? Tune in for today’s Chart episode!

Today, the Chart squad will reignite your teenage angst with a trip down Memory Lane. Since we have already covered the art tendencies of the Princess of Pop, time has come to take a look at the paintings of the Antichrist Superstar himself: Marilyn Manson. Yes, the ever-controversial heavy metal singer that sparked a thousand urban legends about floating ribs has also explored the medium of painting, and if you wanna know what his twisted mind has done to a bunch of innocent canvases, tune in for this episode and find out!   Link to the Britnaissance episode on spotify Spotify:  https://open.spotify.com/episode/0NURLrha9bZ6bxuU8mQsLB?si=vJLg-FTVTRqm3mIUMhcgxw  Apple podcasts:  https://podcasts.apple.com/be/podcast/chart-podcast/id1517293067?i=1000493291381  For email enquiries: chart podcastgmail.com Make sure to follow us on our socials!

Ever since the dawn of humankind, art has been the noblest of pursuits; a constant struggle to capture the point of collision between the beauty of nature and the madness of human imagination. From prehistoric mammoths painted in cave walls to Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, art has always been the pursuit to face our fears and embody our emotions. But then, Jeff Koons happened… Not gonna lie, we at Chart are not his biggest fans, but the man does hold two record auction prices for a work by a living artist, so quite a lot of people think he is one of the most important figures in art history.
