Add to Calendar

In this wide-ranging overview, Emeritus Professor Richard Read explores the idea that ‘bad’ works of art reveal the problem that ‘successful’ works of art conceal and that this effect of ‘failure’ has therefore been an essential quality of truly experimental art, especially over the last century. It also responds to a very general feeling amongst most of us: that some art is so bad, it’s brilliant!
