What can activist and thinker John Ruskin’s (1819-1900) ideas of beauty, nature and social value, teach us about the functioning of art in contemporary society?

or a round-table conversation led by Adam Sutherland of Grizedale Arts, guests Robert Hewison (Curator of Ruskin, Turner and the Pre-Raphaelites in Ruskin’s Centenary, Tate Britain, 2000); Charlie Gere (Professor, Media Theory and History, Lancaster Institute for Contemporary Arts) and A Fair Land artists Francesca Ulivi and Niamh Riordan address how the increasing professionalisation of artists and institutions separate us from creativity in the everyday.

This discussion is part of A Fair Land project at IMMA, in collaboration with Grizedale Arts UK.

This talk took place on Wednesday 8 June 2016.
