Tim Marlow examines the history of a singular institution, London's Royal Academy of Arts, from the lofty peaks of Turner and Constable to the embarrassment of a president threatening to kick Picasso's and Matisse's backsides. Marlow is the Academy's current Artistic Director, with a remit including exhibitions and collection, learning and publishing. Previously, he was Director of Exhibitions at London's White Cube (2003–14). He is also an award-winning radio and television broadcaster, and was founding editor of Tate magazine. He has worked with many of the most important and influential artists of our time. Presented in partnership with Te Papa Tongarewa and Victoria University of Wellington.
