Art Relax Retrospective:

The Colourful World of Art Movements

On Tuesday, Vox Groovy’s Nina told us all about Animal Crossing: New Horizons (2020) and its wonderful collaborations with some of the world’s most popular fashion brands. If you love style as much as we do, you should consider heading on down to your island’s Able Sisters’ tailor’s shop, it’ll be easy to find a new look now that Marc Jacobs and Valentino released a number of new designs for our in-game avatars.

After that, we continued to traverse the colourful world of art movements by taking a closer look at impressionism. This is a movement that had to fight for its place in the art world, and even if no one questions the impressionists’ masterpieces anymore, the artworks were actually seen as “lesser” back in the 1800s. Masters like Monet, Renoir and Cézanne had to make waves with their art in order for the movement to stand out—one of the most important moves being their organizing of an exhibition in 1874. It had no state involvement, no jury and no hierarchy of subject matter. An approach that would change Paris and its art scene for the better.

Nocna Hliadka

Lastly, we spoke about Spirit of the North (2019), a game about two foxes that allows you to explore the breathtaking and mysterious landscapes of Iceland. If you’re a fan of mythology or would like to learn a thing or two about any of the exciting topics from Tuesday’s show, tune in for the reprise!

How It's Made:

Art Relax is a hand mixed show utilizing more than one cutting edge audio technology in order to bring forward the fascination of our distributed studio. As broadcasting was revolutionized by digital audio—in good and bad ways, our team has done its best to cut back on the drawbacks.

The Show:

Art Relax [.sk] version, is a special program for Slovaks living abroad. According to the UZZS, there are more than 1 million Slovak nationals in different countries from around the world. With over 560,000 in the US, 90,000 in the UK, and 50,000 in Canada.

Art Relax is Radio Vox Groovy’s flagship program, and our team is working around the clock to make sure this 2-hour slot is worth your while. The aim is to continue to curate a library of over 5,000 songs—making sure that it encompasses everything from prog’s hidden gems to surprises like the newly-discovered “early jazz”. Using this music library, RVG builds wonderful playlists to accompany each show’s 3 art-related themes, all of which are typically chosen by our experienced radio hosts.

Our definition of “art” is quite broad, so you can expect to find us discussing film, games, paintings, etc. All of these are explored through RVG’s unique lens, but if you’re a regular listener, you’ll soon find that the four radio personalities will allow their individual preferences to shine through sometimes, giving you more than just one “unique” lens to work with.

With this in mind, we hope that you’ll tune in to listen to our next show!
