8 Art Podcasts for Lockdown Inspiration

8 Art Podcasts for Lockdown Inspiration

Over the past months, COVID-19 (the Coronavirus) has become a global health issue. As a result, museums, cultural institutions, art fairs, and events have either been canceled, postponed, or closed until further notice. For this reason, COVID-19 has impacted us all. Now, we adapt to a new normal of isolation and social-distancing. However, Moco hopes to make those moments of pause just a little more creative.  So, whether you’re cooking at home, painting in the garden, or going on a stroll for your daily dose of Vitamin D. (Yes, it’s still important.) Moco Museum wishes to refresh your quarantine routine with 8 Art Podcasts for Lockdown Inspiration. See, below.  

 

ArtCurious

Exploring the unexpected, the slightly odd, and the strangely wonderful in Art History

ArtCurious Podcast makes the subject relatable to everyone. Who is Banksy, really? Did Van Gogh actually kill himself? Why were the Impressionists so great? ArtCurious Podcast goes for the story first! With 20 years of art historical studies and experience, Jennifer Dasal thus writes, produces, and hosts the show. In other words, get curious here! 

 

Art History Babes Podcast

Four Fabulous Fresh Masters that represent the four zodiac elements (Water, Air, Earth, and Fire). They’re perfectly in balance. Join the intimate circle as they drink wine and surely discuss all things visual culture. What are you waiting for? Listen to the babes’ art podcast here.

 

Raw Material

The official culture and arts podcast from the San Francisco Museum of Art (SFMOMA). Each season of Raw Material specifically explores a new topic of modern and contemporary art. Furthermore, hosted by different “podcasters-in-residence”. Right now, we’re obsessed with the latest season (Six Degrees) that explores degrees of separation in our interconnected lives. 

“No connection is too trivial, no distance too far.”

In the same vein, Moco Museum and Studio Irma introduce a new art movement called Connectivism in Reflecting Forward. With this in mind, the immersive digital art exhibition strives to show a world without borders. Book your flexible tickets for the future, here!
