An Artist For Tea

Charlotte Bonham-Carter and Gemma Tortella invite a different artist into the café each month to talk about their work, with an expert’s perspective too. Conversation pauses now and then for a quality tune.

Broadcasts from An Artist For Tea:

An Artist for Tea, Vol. 4

For their fourth podcast, Charlotte and Gemma are joined by the creative duo Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard. Forsyth and Pollard suggested to theme the show around the idea of belief, and they have invited Father Brian Ralph, of St. Barnabas Parish Church in Bethnal Green, to join them. Forsyth and Pollard, known for staging cultural and art historical re-enactments have explored the idea of ‘belief’ in previous works such as ‘Silent Sound’ a restaging of a performance by Victorian entertainers which Forsyth and Pollard made for the Liverpool Biennial in 2006. Their interest in inviting Father Brian Ralph stems, in part, from the fact that Forsyth and Pollard will be exploring deeper into the notion of belief in future projects, including a feature length film.

As well as being a Vicor, Father Brian Ralph moonlights as a DJ. Music is a longstanding interest for Forsyth and Pollard, and the conversation revolves as much around music as it does about belief.

An Artist For Tea, Vol. 3

This month the artist Arnaud Desjardin is in the cafe to talk to Gemma Tortella and Charlotte Bonham-Carter about book publishing and his show at the Bloomberg Space ‘The Book on Books on Artists’ Books’. He brings in some of his most excellent vinyl to play and they discuss small scaleartists’ publishing. Why do it? Who reads this stuff? And where can I get my hands on some?
