Three Graces and the V&A Podcast

The Three Graces cultural engagement fellowship enabled Dr. Tyreman to assist with the initial roll out of the V&A Podcast, a major new initiative conceived, led and hosted by Dr. Glenn Adamson (former Head of Research) at the Museum. The series, which launched on the 22nd July 2013, provides a glimpse into the 'World's Greatest Museum of Art and Design' providing the inside story on a wide variety of museum activities and concerns. Each episode features a V&A member of staff and/or a guest interviewed by Dr. Adamson.

As a fellow on the project Dr. Tyreman was invited to develop an episode relating to the Three Graces project and her work on Victorian women artists at the Museum. The resultant episode Women Artists is freely available here and on the V&A Podcast webpage. In the interview Dr. Katie Tyreman Herrington and Prof. Deborah Cherry, the Associate Dean of Research at London College of Communication, talk about women artists in the nineteenth century. Joining them to offer a contemporary perspective is artist Rebecca Salter. Together with host Dr. Glenn Adamson they consider the important role that women played in Victorian art, and how the context for women artists has developed over time.
