Brit Art – Where To Now? – Historian and art expert Gus Casely-Hayford explores the state of British modern art. He asks whether the age of mass-produced, commodified art is coming to an end and speaks to those responsible; the artists.
In an age in which art has largely been preoccupied with price rather than value, Gus journeys from white-washed studios to the squats to see who our artists are. He explores what they are making, where they are making it and how it has changed. From the A-listers to those just starting out, Gus asks whether a new era in art is dawning. Can art be modest and genuine?
