In this episode, we explore the role of memory in art. Pierre Bonnard relied on memory to create his paintings. This podcast asks how can our senses provoke memories and how can our past inspire us? We hear from contemporary artists, a stroke survivor, a neuroscientist and an author and poet.

Featuring Kayo Chingonyi, Constanza Dessain, Stuart Donaldson, Matthew Gale, Rosanna McLaughlin, Sylvia Rimat, Nick Turner and Rachel Williams.

A Boom Shakalaka Production for Tate, Produced by Eliza Lomas.
