Naked Emperors: Criticisms of English Contemporary Art

This event has already taken place.

Host: Oxford Literary Festival
Location: Christ Church, St Aldate’s, Oxford OX1 1DP
Speaker: Brian Sewell

Britain’s most famous art critic, Brian Sewell gives his take on almost every important contemporary English art exhibition of the last 25 years. Naked Emperors is the first collection of his London Evening Standard articles to be published in nearly 20 years. Sewell, often divisive and always controversial, is well known for his acerbic views on conceptual art and the Turner prize. He has upset so many in the art world that many of his contemporaries once called for his sacking in a signed letter. He will reflect on the state of English contemporary art and what the future holds for it.
