Celebrity Culture and Art History ft. Tabloid Art History – Episode 2
In the second episode of Art Matters, we’re talking to the creators of Tabloid Art History, a Twitter account that joins up the celebrity images of today with paintings from art history. We discuss how Lindsay Lohan gives off Caravaggio vibes; the artistic merit to be found in the Real Housewives of Atlanta; and how Lady Gaga and Beyoncé have used art historical images to promote themselves and their music. This episode's guests: Elise Bell, Chloe Esslemont and Mayanne Soret are the brains behind Tabloid Art History. TAH was created in November 2016 by University of Edinburgh students Elise and Chloe, has built a community of over 40,000 followers over the last year, and has been featured in Vanity Fair, Dazed, Vogue, i-D and Vox. In April 2017, the duo were commissioned an exhibition piece by art collective CWDT. They produced a zine looking at the intersection of pop culture and art history, through which Mayanne, a UCL graduate, joined the team. The zine sold over 180 copies worldwide, and is still available to read online for free through the website. In 2018, Tabloid Art History is extending to Instagram, and will work to produce more art history content to help democratise the subject.

Queer Culture and Art History ft. Dr Justin Bengry – Episode 1
We talk to Dr Justin Bengry about queer culture and art history. Dr Bengry is a Lecturer in Queer History at Goldsmiths, University of London and convenor of the first MA in Queer History. 2017 marked 50 years since the beginning of decriminalisation of homosexuality in the United Kingdom. It also saw Tate Britain put on a landmark exhibition, ‘Queer British Art’, looking at the impact queer culture and people have had on the art world: from Simeon Solomon through to the Bloomsbury Group, up to the work of Francis Bacon and David Hockney. We talk about coded expressions of queer identity – from when it was still illegal through to today – artists who challenged gender norms, and how more informed attitudes towards gender and sexual identity today impact the way that we approach the discussion of art. https://artuk.org/discover/stories/art-matters-podcast-queer-culture
