What is Art?: A User's Guide (A Crash Course in Brain Surgery)
Thursday 01 December 2016, 1-5pm.
City Art Gallery, Southampton
£5.90-£20. Booking essential.

What is Art? is Visual Arts South West (VASW)'s annual event; a user’s guide, a crash course in brain surgery, with a fun, provocative back to basics approach. A series of quick fire presentations will scratch a fundamental itch for razor sharp thinking and robust critical debate on three key questions:

What is an Artist?
What is Good Art?
Who, What and Where is the Audience?

Confirmed speakers include Bedwyr Williams, Susan Jones, Manick Govinda, Dominic from Luton, Thomas Goddard and Matt Ashdown.

More details and booking information can be found here.

The event is in association with the British Art Show, Southampton and City Art Gallery, Southampton.
