N. Fraser-Cavassoni & T. Rachman: What Makes a Great Artist


Venue: Electric Theatre, Onslow Street, Guildford GU1 4SZ
Date:  Sunday 7 October  Time: 16.30 - 17.30
Price: £10.00, £9.00 for students and jobseekers

Journalist Natasha Fraser-Cavassoni and novelist Tom Rachman discuss the contemporary art world and what makes an artist.  Former European editor of Harper's Bazaar, and daughter of Lady Antonia Fraser, Natasha worked at the Andy Warhol Studio in New York, and witnessed the end of an era, the wrangles over his estate, and the establishment of a global phenomenon. Her story is told in After Andy: Adventures in Warhol Land.

In Tom's funny and heart-wrenching novel, The Italian Teacher, the main protagonist is a leading artist, driven by work, adored by fans, but ruthlessly indifferent to his family, until fate plays a hand. A thought-provoking talk that will challenge the very idea of greatness.
