Alison Goldfrapp on Leonora Carrington 

The musician and artist Alison Goldfrapp discusses the life and work of the trailblazing British / Mexican surrealist painter and author, Leonora Carrington, who was born in 1917 in the UK and emigrated to Mexico in the 1940s.  

Bow Down – the podcast about significant female artists who deserve our attention – returns for season two. Presented by Jennifer Higgie.

Erratum: Jennifer mistakenly mentions that Goldfrapp has won a Grammy Award. In fact, Goldfrapp has been nominated for a Grammy Award four times and won an Ivor Novello Award. Apologies.
