Our podcast programme is specifically designed to support in-depth engagement with our exhibitions, while taking them far beyond the Gallery walls.

This podcast series is inspired by our blockbuster Mondrian exhibition. It will look at Mondrian's work through the lens of two art forms that are intrinsically linked with his output and enduring influence: architecture and music. The first two podcasts in this series are now available below.
