Podcast Description:L’audio-visuel is a Canadian audio podcast from the Galerie du Nouvel-Ontario. This art gallery focuses primarily on contemporary art by Franco-Ontarian artists. L’audio-visuel is the official podcast of the Galerie du Nouvel-Ontario (gn-o.org). These podcasts are interviews with the artists exhibiting at the GNO, staff and artist members and discussions on contemporary art.
The whole podcast revolves around the guest. We can learn how the GNO works, with artists exhibiting for example.Exhibitions are described very precisely as well as the functioning of the GNO. There are no guests but interviews recorded before and broadcast during the podcast, in order to know a little more about the lives of artists and their exhibitions. Since the host records the interviews on his phone, the quality is sometimes quite bad and makes the podcast difficult to understand. Some parts of the podcast may be in English if the guest does not speak French.
Summary: This mainly French podcast is interesting for people who are interested in art and especially the Galerie du Nouvel Ontario. In addition, it helps to know more about exhibitions and artists.
