Audio Arts Online

We've just added links to the Library Catalogue for all Audio Arts recordings that are available to listen to online. This magazine was originally published on audio cassette, before transferring to CD, and the Library holds an extensive run of recordings in these formats. Now when you search the Library Catalogue you'll see links wherever MP3 versions are available free online, courtesy of Tate.
The innovative audio magazine Audio Arts was established by Bill Furlong in 1973 to provide recordings of interviews and discussions with leading contemporary artists. Over the years those interviewed have included Tacita Dean, Tracey Emin, Gary Hume, Michael Craig-Martin, Vanessa Beecroft, Carl Andre and Joseph Beuys. The interviews provide an excellent opportunity to hear artists talking directly about their own work.
