2023: the biggest stories and the best shows

It’s the final episode of 2023 and so, as always, it’s our review of the year. Host Ben Luke is joined by Louisa Buck, The Art Newspaper’s contemporary art correspondent, based in London, and Ben Sutton, editor, Americas, based in New York, to discuss the big art and heritage news stories of the year, from rows over the Israel-Hamas war to thefts at the British Museum and the battle for art-fair supremacy between Art Basel and Frieze. Plus, we discuss the shows and works that made the biggest impact in 2023, from Jaune Quick-to-See Smith at the Whitney Museum of American Art to Philip Guston in Washington and London and Vermeer in Amsterdam to Faith Ringgold in Paris.
