Happy Birthday to us! It was just over a year ago when we first started this podcast, and with this being episode 52 we thought we’d celebrate here, have a look back at what an amazing year it’s been, and re-introduce ourselves.
We’ll be coming back on the 13th September! In the meantime you can still reach us on our socials and through email, and as always if you have any recommendations send them our way!
Did you have any favourite episodes in the past year? What was the most outstanding exhibition or event you checked out yourself? You can let us know in the comments or by sending us a comment or message on our Twitter or Instagram.
For this week’s episode the girls have a chat about the opening of the wonderful Heads & Tales exhibition at Vane Gallery (exhibition runs until 13th July 2019 – go check it out today!). We discuss how art is important to mental health, Rosie’s involvement in the show, and a few of our favourites.
For this week’s episode the girls popped back along to the Tyneside Cinema to check out the most recent event in the Projections programme: Susie Green & Simon Bayliss: Artists’ Music Videos. They had a fantastic evening watching an eclectic mix of music videos and true experimentations of what a music video could be.
We’ve got another minisode this week for you guys! Alice and Amy got an invite to check out an exhibition by Claire Dorsett that opened at Workplace Gallery in Gateshead the other week. We really loved the style of the paintings and the kind of nostalgia it evoked, so we thought we’d have a quick chat about it.
For this week’s episode Alice and Amy finally went on their ‘sister trip’ up to Edinburgh, where they checked out the ‘Beyond Realism | Dada and Surrealism‘ exhibition at The National Scottish Museum Of Modern Art. We do love a bit of surrealism and it was great finding some familliar artists work and learning about some new ones (well, new to us because surrealism is an old movement).
This episode continues from last week, where we were talking about our last visit to Middlesbrough and the Creative Factory arts trail on the 24th May. Here we have a chat about the opening of The Auxiliary’s brand new space in an old converted warehouse, and the lovely Hun event, ‘The Summer One’.
For this week’s episode the girls talk about their recent visit down to Middlesbrough to check out the Creative Factory Middlesbrough art trail on the 24th May. On this wonderful evening filled with art and amazing people, Pineapple Black opened a couple of new exhibitions, ‘Training Montage’ and ‘Renounce’.
Tune in next week for a part two of this episode, where we chat about the opening of The Auxiliary and HUN’s Summer One!
In this very silly minisode Alice and Rosie finish their chat about when they went to Barcelona, taking about the Frederic Mares Museum and the many hundreds of Jesus sculptures, as well as some other aspects of the collection and the trip.
For this week’s episode the girls wanted to talk about that time they went to Barcelona, and their visit to the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art. There were two fantastic and remarkably extensive exhibitions on show, ‘A Short Century: MACBA Collection‘ and ‘Christian Marclay: Compositions‘, so have a listen as we break these down and just generally talk about the trip.
For this week’s episode the wonderful Alison Merritt Smith, director of The Holy Biscuit here in Newcastle, came into the studio to have a chat about The Holy Biscuit and it’s current transition and re-brand into Shieldfield Art Works. We talked about the launch party, the current exhibition, and the effect of the rise of student accommodation has on the community.
