‘Art Is Everywhere’ on BBC 6 Music


Art Is Everywhere with Jeremy Deller

I have two very special shows on the cards to celebrate the Turner Prize on BBC 6 Music this weekend.. Saturday & Sunday 7-10am.

I’m gonna ask all of you listening if you’d like to create piece of art inspired by what you hear on the shows.. that could be musical sounds, lyrics, spoken words or more abstract elements.

You can use any materials you have to hand – oil paint, plasticine, pencils, Play Doh, clothes pegs, bananas, words, sound, old photographs, watercolours, iPad App… whatever’s easy.

My very special guest is brilliant Turner Prize winning artist Jeremy DellerHe’s leading the project, alongside sound artist Mira Calix, artist Gary Hume a Turner Prize nominee, BBC Arts Correspondent Will Gompertz, and Maria Balshaw Director of the Whitworth & Manchester Art Gallery.

A host of fine artists, cartoonists, and record sleeve designers are confirmed to take part:
