The World in Your Hands

James Brett, Iain McGilchrist, Lauren Parker, Anj Smith. Gabriel Gbadamosi chairs.

“A man paints with his brains and not with his hands.” (Michelangelo)
Technique is back on the agenda as Richard Wright’s Turner Prize winning wall painting demonstrates.  Is skill and craft essential to art or is it an irrelevance?

Collector and gallerist James Brett, psychiatrist and author Iain McGilchrist, V&A senior curator Lauren Parker and artist Anj Smith consider whether skill matters. Chaired by writer and TV presenter Gabriel Gbadamosi.
