Tim Marlow: 250 Years and Still Counting: The Triumphs and Tribulations of a Royal Academy

19 November 2017

From the lofty peaks of Turner and Constable to the embarrassment of a president threatening to kick Picasso's and Matisse's backsides, Tim Marlow examines the history of a singular institution. Marlow is Artistic Director of the Royal Academy of Arts, where his remit includes the exhibition programme and collection, as well as learning and publishing. Prior to this, he was Director of Exhibitions at London's White Cube (2003–14). He is an award-winning radio and television broadcaster and was the founding editor of Tate magazine and the author of numerous books and catalogues. He has worked with many of the most important and influential artists of our time.

Followed by cash bar.

Presented in partnership with Te Papa Tongarewa and Victoria University of Wellington.
