The Week in Art


Return to La La Land: art is back in California

This week: Los Angeles has finally opened its museums after more than a year. When New York's galleries have been open since August, what took California so long? We talk to Jori Finkel about LA's slow emergence from lockdown. Also: DB Burkeman tells us about his new book Art Sleeves, a trawl through 40 years of artist-designed record covers. And in this episode's Work of the Week, as Scottish museums re-open after a long lockdown, Kirsty Hassard, the curator of V&A Dundee's exhibition Night Fever: Designing Club Culture, talks about Volker Hinz's photograph of the singer and fashion model Grace Jones, in the Area nightclub in New York in 1984.
