Our first lecture of our new season
But is it Art?
Speaker: Lynne Gibson
If this question gives you food for thought you have plenty in common with artists, thinkers and educators, not just in our present time but throughout Western Art History.
We agree that a Raphael Madonna is art but argue about Tracy Emin’s My Bed. Can they both be art, and, if so, what do they have in common? Is My Bed Conceptual Art or just a ‘con’? Can we agree on a definition of art, or are we at the mercy of Nicholas Penny, Nick Serota and Charles Saatchi?
Join Lynne to shake up some preconceptions and face up to some prejudices; to ask: But…is it art?
