We are delighted to welcome Nick Nelson Head of Art History Cheltenham College and founder of Arcadia Education – arcadia.education.
Our first topic of conversation is “Art and Controversy’ Nick will cover controversy in art from tackling Warhol and Hirst as media-manipulators and asks does controversy make publicity and thus cultivates celebrity. Whose artworks were burnt in the infamous New York Armoury Show? What made a member of the public enter the National Gallery with a
sawn-off shotgun and blow a hole in a Leonardo cartoon from seven feet? This interactive talk endeavours to explore ‘Art on the Edge’.
Tickets: £35.00 per person to include coffee on arrival at 11:30am, the talk, a two course lunch and glass of wine.
