But is it any good? Consuming Art and Taste

Ref: C3680502

A short taster course, this will be a race through art history to look at who is making art, who commissions art, what the messages are, who is looking at it and who is deciding what is ‘good’ art. We will also look at art as an investment and art theft, and the impact this has on how we view art.
