What Is The Art of The Arts Documentary?
Friday 11th April, 11:00-12:30
In this panel discussion, chaired by broadcaster Kirsty Wark and featuring artist Jeremy Deller; award winning film makers Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard and broadcasters and art critics Tim Marlow and Andrew Graham-Dixon discuss the role of arts documentaries in capturing the lives and work of artists throughout history. We ask if the arts documentary can ever really capture an artist’s practice; examine the genre’s relevance in today’s multi-platform world and ask the ultimate question: what is the Art of the Arts documentary?
