Martin Gayford

The Pursuit of ArtPavilion Arts Centrebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

Spectator Art Critic and Radio 3 broadcaster Martin Gayford recounts journeys as varied as those to see Brancusi’s Endless Column in Romania, prehistoric cave art in France, the museum island of Naoshima in Japan, the Judd Foundation in Marfa, Texas, and Anselm Kiefer’s extraordinary ‘underworld’ at Barjac, France.

Interwoven with these tales are other journeys, to meet artists. These encounters not only provide insights into the way artists approach and think about their art, but also reveal the importance of their personal environments. And in the process, Gayford discusses how these meetings impact on his own evolving ideas and tastes.
