Just popping in to recommend Grayson Perry’s Reith lectures to you. Here’s what the Reith lectures are:
“The Reith Lectures were inaugurated in 1948 by the BBC to mark the historic contribution made to public service broadcasting by Sir John (later Lord) Reith, the corporation’s first director-general. Significant international thinkers deliver the BBC’s flagship annual lecture series.” BBC (British TV Channel)
Grayson Perry (ceramicist, tapestry making and all round artist and cross dressing Turner prize winner) is the speaker this year and is very funny and easy to listen to. He raised a few good issues such as how do we tell what good art it? who decides? who validates good art and how? Interesting stuff – click here if you artists out there fancy 30 mins brain food.
