Art and Migration in Modern Britain | Apollo talk at the London Art Fair

Business Design Centre, Islington

NOW CLOSED

Some of the greatest artists to have worked in Britain in the last century have been émigrés, and many artists have migrated to the country in recent decades. How does the historical experience of the émigré artist differ from that of contemporary practitioners? What can art teach us about cultural assimilation in modern Britain? And how might artists respond, if at all, to today’s migrant crisis?

A panel discussion chaired by Thomas Marks, editor of Apollo.

Panellists include David Glasser (Chairman of Ben Uri), Güler Ates (artist) and Tom Overton (writer, and editor of ‘Portraits: John Berger on Artists’)
