Insiders/Outsiders - An Evening with Monica Bohm-Duchen and Sir Norman Rosenthal

Thursday 27th June 18:30 at London - Hampstead

Insiders/Outsiders, published to accompany a nationwide arts festival of the same name, examines the extraordinarily rich and pervasive contribution of refugees from Nazi-dominated Europe to the visual culture, art education and art-world structures of the United Kingdom. In every field, émigrés arriving from Europe in the 1930s - supported by a small number of like-minded individuals already resident in this country - introduced a professionalism, internationalism and bold avant-gardism to a British art world not known for these attributes.
At a time when the issue of immigration is much debated, the book serves as a reminder of the importance of cultural cross-fertilization and of the deep, long-lasting and wide-ranging contribution that refugees make to British life.
Independent art historian Monica Bohm-Duchen, initiator and Creative Director of the Insiders/Outsiders Festival and contributing editor to the companion volume, will be in conversation with Sir Norman Rosenthal, Exhibitions Secretary of the Royal Academy of Arts, London between 1977 and 2008, to discuss their shared interest - both personal and professional -  in the rich cultural terrain covered by the book.

Ticket price includes a glass of wine on arrival.
