Welcome to the Art Angle, a podcast from Artnet News that delves into the places where the art world meets the real world, bringing each week’s biggest story down to earth. Join host Andrew Goldstein every week for an in-depth look at what matters most in museums, the art market, and much more, with input from our own writers and editors, as well as artists, curators, and other top experts in the field.

 

’Tis the season, once again, it’s The Art Angle Christmas episode. Can you believe we made it through another one of these incredibly intense pandemic years? We figured we would craft this festive little holiday-cast as something soothing and reflective, some old fashioned balm for the soul. No NFTs here. What is the antithesis of NFTs you ask? Why archaeology of course! And it just so happens that this year was filled with all kinds of fascinating revelations that continue to shape, and sometimes radically rewrite our understanding of the ancient world. On this episode Artnet News senior writer Sarah Cascone discusses what new developments happened in the world of old news.
