Richard Hylton on Cultural Diversity and the Visual Arts Sector
Chaired by Eddie Chambers
Tue 3 Jul 6.00pm
Richard Hyltons new book, The Nature of the Beast: Cultural Diversity and the Visual Arts Sector, (ICIA at University of Bath), meets a long overdue need for public analysis of cultural diversity policies in the visual arts over the past four decades. Hyltons talk offers a fascinating insight into the roles played by the GLC, Arts Council England, publicly funded English galleries and arts organisations. He charts cultural diversitys various incarnations, from ethnic arts in the late 70s, through to culturally diverse arts in the 21st century. Hyltons assessment of the impact on Black visual arts activity is invaluable to those with an interest in cultural policy, curatorial practice and the visual arts in general.
Followed by a drinks reception in the bookshop.
