The VAN Podcast is a podcast series from Visual Artists Ireland.
Published every two months, The VAN Podcast comprises online conversations, recorded remotely, with various contributors to each issue of The Visual Artists’ News Sheet. This gives opportunities to discuss some of the ideas arising from published texts, while also offering insights into wider practice.
Episode 2 features interviews with Kiera O’Toole, as well as Jane Morrow and Moran Been-Noon, who each contributed to the January-February 2021 issue of VAN.

Her recent profile for VAN focuses on NINE – a new collective of 8 women artists, formed during lockdown.
Jane Morrow is an independent visual art curator and researcher based in Belfast, whose ongoing PhD research examines the precarity of artists’ studios and workspaces. Moran Been-Noon is an Israeli, Dublin-based curator, artist and writer, who is currently Curator-in-Residence at glór in Ennis. In 2020, Jane and Moran established the Angelica Network, which was profiled in the January-February issue of VAN.
