Talk: 1960s And Public Institutions

This series begins with a discussion between Sir Nicholas Serota, Director at TATE, and artist Jeremy Deller. They consider how the establishment of public institutions such as Camden Arts Centre, Arnolfini and Modern Art Oxford, that were built in the 1960’s, brought art to the people, the opportunities that the formation of these spaces enabled, and the challenges they now face to remain open and accessible in the changing landscape of today’s art world.
