Goodbye to Tenth Street: A novel by Irving Sandler

Making the 2018 New York Times best art book list, Sandler transports the reader back in time to the 1950s and 60s in New York where abstract expressionism was emerging, and scandal and gossip was rife. Vivid, cutting and intertwined with art theory, we see the era of Pollock and Warhol come to life on the page.

From the Tate collective, this podcast series looks at the links between art and various themes such as dreaming, memory, hip-hop and love to name a few.
