About the event:
As a respected writer on contemporary art and curator to Deutsche Bank, which holds one of the largest and most respected private art collections in the world, Alistair Hicks is both a commentator and tastemaker, and therefore uniquely placed to give an overview of the art world today. He will introduce us to some of the most significant artists working in Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas, and show how they express the rapid social changes around them. He will also discuss the possible problems and benefits of corporate sponsorship of the arts.
