When launching the Art Talk podcast in 2018, actor Russell Tovey and gallerist Robert Diament had one clear goal: to make the art world more accessible. Since then, the podcast has become a global hit, boasting exclusives with artists, curators, and performers, with Elton among them.
This spring Talk Art, the book, will be published. Besides celebrating contemporary art, it's considered to be a guidebook to navigating and engaging with the art world. It covers a range of different media from photography and ceramics to performance and sound art. In addition, there are highlights from interviews with Elton, Tracey Emin, Jerry Saltz, Grayson Perry, Ian McKellen, and more.
Elton and David Furnish have penned the following blurb. . .
''As rabid admirers and collectors of contemporary art and photography we wholeheartedly recommend this passionate and joyous book. Without art the human soul is unfulfilled. This collection by Russell and Robert fully explains why.''
