Art & Social Crisis - Andrew Graham Dixon

7:00pm ‐ 8:30pm
Hillcrest Centre
Bay Vue Road, Newhaven, East Sussex, BN9 9LH


Andrew Graham-Dixon reflects on the ways in which art has been shaped by social crisis and upheaval, from the Renaissance to the present day. Looking at the subject from such a perspective results in a refreshingly different sense of the history of art, more vivid than simply a succession of movements or “isms”: one that reveals art’s true and deep connection with the actual lives of real people.

Includes a Q&A
Cash Bar
