I am a MA student studying Modern and Contemporary Art History. Tyler consistently releases content that is insightful and follows the pulse of contemporary art historical thought. I have been listening for several years and always find myself refreshing my feed to see if he has released a new episode. I recommend this podcast to anyone who wants to supplement their interest in the art world with thought provoking content and in-depth interviews with artists, researchers, and curators.

Great Learning Tool

by MasonJahr on
Rating: ★★★★★

I’ve am fairly new to this podcast but I think I’ve learned more about art than I ever learned in college art classes. The podcast covers current exhibitions and expands your understanding of the work when you go to the exhibitions. The podcast makes you aware of current exhibitions that may not be in your immediate environment. There’s very frequently a connection to art history and current exhibitions. Also Tyler covers art history in general. The format of the conversations is intelligent. I have and will continue to recommend the podcast to others.

I’m an art lover. BUT.

Interviewees are SO pretentious sounding. I’ve tried to listen to several of these, and all I can think is how pretentious the people are. It’s what gives the art world a bad name. It’s a turn-off even for art lovers like me and will do nothing to help promote the value of art to anyone in the real world. Disappointing.

Best art podcast out there

by JudithLD on
Rating: ★★★★★

I subscribe to several podcasts that focus on the visual arts, and this one is the best. Tyler Green is informed and, as a result, an expert interviewer. I live on the West Coast, and I appreciate that he covers artists and exhibits across the country. Sometimes I listen to a podcast twice because I want to make sure I didn't miss anything.

Great for people looking to understand art

Rating: ★★★★★

This podcast is great to find out more about how artists think (and thru that better understand their artwork). Wonderful way to get inspiration if you have a long commute and to keep up with who’s important in the art world.

Amazing interviewer!

This podcast is a must thanks to Tyler’s amazing interviewing skills. He obviously knows what he’s talking about and asks intelligent questions, often prompting his incredible array of guests to think about their work in a different way.

Modern art notes podcast

Rating: ★★★★☆

I really like this series. I’m going to listen to all of them over the next couple years. I don’t have a problem with the sound, but I listen on my phone with ear buds. Maybe the previous reviewer doesn’t.I expect I’ll be getting a good education here.

Increbile Insights Into Art Past and Present

by EronRauch on
Rating: ★★★★★

Sometimes art can feel like an overwhelmingly vast and forbiding cultural ocean, even for die-hard fans. Modern Art Notes is one of the best resources to bring both the deep past and far-flung future of art into a human scale. Tyler's curiosity and ernest love of art is infectious, as facinated and passionate about the nuances of 14th century Italian Rennaisance painter studios as he is about the conceptual manuevers of contemporary video art. It would hardly be uncommon to have both subjects paired in a episode. Also, I know some folks have complained about sound quality, but many of his guests are amongst the most known artists and curators spread across the world, and getting direct access to their voices and ideas is too much of a rare treat to fret about a bit of fuzzy recording from a 80-year old master artist who only has a land line or whatnot!

Always insightful

by carolynzick on
Rating: ★★★★★

The Modern Art Notes podcast is an extraordinary ongoing installment of thoughtful and thorough examinations of artists, their work and the world they create. Host Tyler Green is not afraid to probe into the intention behind the work and frequently receives thought-provoking answers from the creators of such work. In an art world that is frequently more consumed with the superficial, Tyler continues to reach for the human and authentic elements that can make art so worthy of discussion.

Top notch guests and interviews

by Abner Doubleday on
Rating: ★★★★★

Just found this podcast and am catching up on past interviews. Tyler Green does an excellent job as an interviewer, connecting the dots with his questions and insights. Am consumed with regret that I let so many great museum shows pass me by...will be ordering catalogues to compensate, and pledge that now that I am in the loop with MAN I will visit more! Having sampled many podcasts, I can say that although the sound quality is a bit rough in spots, it is quite acceptable.

By far the best

Through, wide scope, researched and exceptionally well done. A feast of information and insight. Mr. Green has great interviewing skills with both artists and curators- listen and enjoy. Don't forget the supporting website. A+.

Very informative and lively

by Hungry Robin on
Rating: ★★★★★

I really enjoy this podcast. As an artist I listen for historical insight but also for those questions that draw the artist out in a new directions, questions that allow them to discover something about their art through the conversation, which is very differnt than looking at your own work critically. As an arts educator I recommend this podcast to all my Art & art history students.

Get in the KNOW

by Eden E. on
Rating: ★★★★★

Tyler knows his stuff. I've been listening to these thoughtful interviews for over a year now. Tyler does a great job of making an occasionally obtuse topic easy to understand and relatable by using accessible vocabulary and clarifying occasional difficult ideas with great context and great interview questions. Love it- a must listen for anyone who wants to have an insight into artistic practice and art historical context. Thanks for all your hard work, Tyler!

Love it!

Love it! Keep it coming.


by jim bockelman on
Rating: ★★★★★

An excellent podcast, providing informed, well researched interviews with artists, curators, and organizers of contemporary exhibitions or catalogues. Insightful as an interviewer, Mr Green allows his guests to speak freely while also carefully navigating them through his agenda. Sound could be improved, but this lower quality forces me to listen again and catch more. And, these interviews are timely, allowing audiences to seek out exhibits in person or as a nightcap to a show already seen.

Tyler Green is da bomb!

Rating: ★★★★★

Tyler Green does his research and asks thoughtful questions. The he really listens to the answers before offering follow up questions. Modern Art Notes is the best art podcast happening today. I listen over and over when I'm working in the studio.

At the Vanguard of Modern Art

Timely interviews and compelling analysis. A true gem in the world of art.

The only modern art podcast!

by D hed on
Rating: ★★★★★

Incredibly relevant and insightful! My favorite part about it is when Tyler asks a question that is so thoughtful and relevant that even the guest is astonished at how meaningful of a question it is. The type of question that stumps them for an answer, but surely makes him or her think about it for days after the interview.

Excellent, smart interviews on a large range of subjects

The Modern Art Notes Podcast

by blacksnail on
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

The sound quality is poor and suffers from what sounds like low quality recording equipment. Its a shame because Mr. Green has access to some great guests but the two podcasts I have listened to “Snapshot: Painters and Photography: Bonnard to Vuillard.” and Richard Serra are both almost unlistenable.
