Arts for art’s sake or should art be ‘relevant’?
Moderated by art critic and art historian, Terence Rodrigues, these two talks will raise questions which are particularly pertinent in a Covid world: Do artists need to respond to the world around them? Should art reflect social, cultural or political issues? What makes contemporary art contemporary? Is graffiti/street are more connected to the ‘real’ world?
Terence Rodrigues, a former lecturer at Oxford University and former director of Christie’s, is an art historian and art critic.
He has written for major newspapers and has been the editor of several art magazines, including The Fine Arts Journal, as welll as lecturing on art, of all periods from Old Masters to contemporary art, in the UK, Europe, the USA and Asia.
As you progress along the walkway outside the Grand Hall you can get a feeling for what the future of Fulham Town Hall, as a luxury, boutique hotel and entertainment hub will look like.
