About The ICA Podcast

The ICA Podcast was launched in July 2020 and features interviews with South African artists and curators who perform or curate live, interdisciplinary works.

The Podcast emerged out of the ICA’s edited collection Acts of Transgression: Contemporary Live Art in South Africa, and extends the work begun by the book through conversations with the creators and curators of Live Art. Each episode is alive with music and audio from artists’ performances, and the weight and emotion of their personal stories. (Read more about Season 1 and Season 2 of The ICA Podcast).

Season 3, hosted by Nkgopoleng Moloi, focuses on seven artists featured at the 2022 ICA Live Art Festival: Tandile Mbatsha, Asemahle Ntlonti, Qondiswa James, Russel Hlongwane, Lukhanyiso Skosana, Nkosenathi Koela and Kolawole Gbolahan
