Tate Talks 

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxtgEIN3xuAGy730NFwEOUA

  • Art lovers of all kinds may be interested in Tate Talks, a YouTube channel produced by the UK's Tate Gallery. With Tate Talks, viewers are treated to in-depth discussions with influential artists about their careers, artwork, and personal experiences. These conversations took place in front of live audiences as special events at the Tate, and some of them also include audience Q&A sessions. The artists interviewed in Tate Talks come from around the world and from varying artistic disciplines. Some examples are American filmmaker and video artist Kahlil Joseph, British painter-sculptor Sir Antony Gormley, Nigerian-born visual artist Njideka Akunyili Crosby, and Chinese conceptual artist Ai Weiwei. Most Tate Talk discussions are approximately 90 minutes long, and at this time of writing, there are more than 25 videos. For those unable to attend special talks at the Tate in person, the Tate Talk YouTube channel provides an accessible alternative.
