The Apollo magazine podcast, produced in association with The Spectator’s Culture House, takes a monthly look at international art and museum news. In the July/August edition, Thomas Marks is joined by Diane Lees, director-general of the Imperial War Museums, and writer and curator David Boyd Haycock to discuss the reopening of IWM London and the role of art in recording and commemorating the first world war. Apollo web editor Maggie Gray picks out some of the summer’s major art world stories, including deaccessioning in Northampton and trouble in Russia. The pod concludes with a discussion of Gilbert & George’s new exhibition at White Cube in London and a look ahead to some of September’s big openings.
