BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking

A discussion at Nottingham Contemporary

08 Jun 2016

Join us for a Free Thinking discussion about the future of art.
 
Chaired by Anne McElvoy the conversation will be recorded for broadcast on BBC Radio 3 on Thursday 16th June at 10pm on the eve of the opening of the Switch House, the new £260m building that has expanded the Tate Modern.
 
Nottingham Contemporary Director Sam Thorne and Ann Gallagher, Director of Collections (British Art) at Tate, will be joined by Turner Prize winner Elizabeth Price and artist Alice Channer.
 
Tate's new building will display work that reflects profound changes in the role and practice of contemporary art, often involving performance and a direct connection to audiences. How do these new art practices connect with pressing issues both in this country and internationally, and what would happen if we stopped using the word art to describe what contemporary artists do? What is the role of art in education? What does it mean to be trying to make a living as a contemporary artist now? How important are new UK artist communities springing up outside of London and how do they connect to an international art world?
 
These are some of the questions the panel will be considering. There will also be the opportunity for questions from the audience.
 
The recording will also be available as a BBC Radio 3 Arts and Ideas download.
 
6.30pm - 7.30pm
