From Bronzes to Banksy - an armchair tour of street art and public art Ian Swankie Wednesday 17 June 2020

London has a world-class reputation for art in its many galleries, but this is a talk about the remarkable range of art outside in the streets.  We tour around the capital discovering some of the most interesting works from across the centuries.  They range from huge and expensive commissions to unofficial graffiti, which is sometimes audacious and playful, but they all have a place in our society.  We look at why art is there, how it has developed over the years and discover many hidden gems.
