The ArtCurious Podcast, an internationally popular, bi-weekly audio show boasting an audience of more than 20,000 subscribers and hundreds of thousands of downloads, released its third season of episodes.
From April through July 2018, ArtCurious will release eight episodes chronicling rivalries in the art world, including the tumultuous relationships between rivals such as Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse; how artist-spouses can be perceived as opponents, especially in the case of Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner; and the inaccurate labeling of artists as rivals like Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun and Adélaïde Labille-Guiard.
Some of the greatest stories in art history have bubbled up from intense friendships and partnerships, but what happens when theres some unhealthy competition involved? says podcast host and producer Jennifer Dasal, a contemporary arts expert and curator. ArtCurious will explore how the art world may have been altered by these tense relationships for better and for worse."
The ArtCurious Podcast is a show about "the unexpected, the slightly odd, and the strangely wonderful in art history. Each episode, Dasal delivers a fresh perspective on art history, countering the notion that art and art history are dry or removed from the average person. In a comfortable narrative style, she tackles artists, their known (or even unknown and misunderstood) works and other related subjects in an entertaining, engaging, and educational way comfortable for art lovers and art novices alike.
Over the past two seasons, Dasal has explored art world mysteries and murmurs, including Van Goghs death, the missing Amber Room, and Jack the Rippers identity. Season two switched formats to a binge-worthy themed series with interlocking stories, focusing on the art world during World War II. The Ghost Army, propaganda, and the Monuments Men were among the topics covered in the much-loved second season. ArtCurious has favorably caught the eye of arts and culture publications including Salon,Antiques and the Arts Weekly, Notre Dame Magazine, Artists Network, and ArtDaily.
