Studio Audience – Series Three, Episode Seven with Bowie, ketchup and Popes

Posted by Rob Alderson,

Your ears want to love you, they really do, but what with your loud pop music and your loud discotheques and your clumsy ear hygiene regime you are NOT making it easy for them. Never fear though, because we have just the thing to rebuild trust between you and your lug holes – it’s the new Studio Audience podcast! And, to treat you all, we welcome back the inimitable Liv Siddall who is on scintillating form, with a couple of rants and an early mention of a painting pony.

    Mike Brodie: Untitled

In this section we talked about the Vatican’s Venice Art Biennale bow this year and what we might expect from the pontiff’s pavilion, we wondered why Mike Brodie’s photographs of freight train hitchhikers struck such a massive chord and we discussed The New York Times’ website redesign. We also chatted about the cancelled Napalm Death gig at one of London’s most venerable museums (you can enjoy one of their ditties below) and we lamented the loss of Google Reader, and asked whether the biggest losers were those in countries with censored internet access

First and foremost it was all about Bowie (which we chose to pronounce like “cow” rather than “bow” which may or may not be right) Liv Siddall built on her gushing review of the show with some more thoughts and we touched on this Guardian review as well.

Then it was on to Designs of the Year (you can read our review and see the full list of nominees here) and – what do you know?! – it all tied in neatly with our new curated cultural countdown of London’s most exciting art and design offerings, This At There. Oh, and this is what Liv wants to win…

    What a podcast this week! Rob’s away, so the kids’ table that is Liv Siddall, Maisie Skidmore and James Cartwright reigns supreme! This week we chew the fat by way of Iggy Pop’s John Peel Lecture about the state of the music industry, and the treasure-packed spectacle that is Frieze London and Frieze Masters 2014.

    This week’s Studio Audience is packed with more goodies than a Christmas Quality Street tin; we review Alex Chinneck’s ingenious and poetically named floating house installation Take my lightning but don’t steal my thunder and Mike Mellie’s similarly tremendously titled selfie portraits. Maisie tells us what delights she saw at the London Art Book Fair at the weekend and we place bets on the Turner Prize.

    We might be one man down but we’re one woman stronger for this week’s Studio Audience.

    Suited and booted we come to you for this week’s Studio Audience, dressed, as Maisie points out, like an awkward family waiting to go to a wedding. (It was our AGM you see, AKA Annual Dress Up For Work Day.) Don’t worry though, we’re our usual barmy selves despite the posh frocks, talking about our bread and butter, art and design.

    Welcome! Welcome to the podcast we make weekly for your enjoyment. Yep, we put our blood sweat and tears into sitting around and chewing the fat so that you can just listen to us while you sit on the train and be totally “in the know” about all things art and design. We don’t just talk about art and design actually, we sometimes cover British folklore or, more commonly, how James used to be a goth.

    Greetings podlings! Great pod this week, lots of swearing and use of the word “aping.” There’s also obligatory shaming James as an ex-goth and arguing about whether sending flowers into space is an act of genius or clever PR stunt. Anyway, off you go, get involved. You can listen via the SoundCloud below or subscribe via iTunes over here..
