#12 Tabloid Art History: on Britney, the rise of social media and Shia LaBeouf
Helloooo, come on in, take off your shoes and settle down for another episode of The You Do You Show, a weekly podcast in which Anna Richmond chats with an arts industry person she admires about the ways pop culture has influenced who they are and what they do.
In this episode, Anna chat to Mayannne Soret and Elise Bell of her favourite online collective, Tabloid Art History. Along with their third member, Chloe Esslemont, Mayanne and Elise use social media to draw comparisons between pop culture moments and art throughout the ages. They exist because, in their words, “for every pic of Lindsay Lohan falling, there's a Bernini sculpture begging to be referenced.” It’s a genius platform that serves to blur the lines between pop culture and high culture — there’s value in both forms, and they are not mutually exclusive. Who better to have a chat with about the influence of pop culture on our identities?
