CHANEL Connects arts and culture podcast launches season four

CHANEL Connects, has launched season four travelling to the world’s most influential, international exhibition of art – the Venice Biennale.

This flagship arts and culture podcast from CHANEL brings together a range of inspiring artistic voices from around the world to discuss the ideas shaping culture today.

Season four features the South African painter and filmmaker William Kentridge, French-Caribbean artist Julien Creuzet, London-based gallerist Sadie Coles, Luxembourg-born actress Vicky Krieps, American designer Michael Rock and Frieze editor Andrew Durbin.

Presented by Yana Peel, Global Head of Arts and Culture, with editor Penny Martin, CHANEL Connects brings the Biennale to life and explains why it is the essential cultural event of the year.

Listeners meet key players from all walks of life. Some are dear friends; others are meeting for the first time. Each will challenge ideas about the art world and the Venice Biennale, on view through this November.

Host Yana Peel commented: “Venice was built from the depths of the ocean with a profound belief in beauty and progress. It is the ideal stage for the fourth season of CHANEL Connects, which was recorded on location during the 60th edition of the Venice Biennale.

“We hear from the gamechangers setting the agenda at the Biennale. We connect leading artists, curators, gallerists, editors, designers and thinkers.

“And, through a series of intimate conversations, we explore the big questions in culture: What are the most urgent ideas right now? Will new technologies innovate artistic practices? How do national pavilions facilitate international discourse? Listen now, and let’s connect!”

From Venice’s Conservatory of Music Benedetto Marcello to the grand halls of the gothic Pisani Moretta, eight episodes, released weekly on all podcast platforms from 3 July, will explore the currents of culture today.
