Professor Alexander Sturgis and Curator Paul Hobson in conversation.
People have used images to tell stories since the earliest humans painted on cave walls. The Directors of the Ashmolean Museum, Xa Sturgis, and of Modern Art Oxford, Paul Hobson, compare notes on the use of narrative in classical and modern art. Is art a storytelling medium? And, if so, which are the great stories that The Story Museum should highlight in its programme? This event is part of our adult series of events entitled ‘1001 Stories’ in which authors, artists, film-makers and others explore what makes a great story and which are the stories that The Story Museum should preserve for the future in its 1001 story collection.
Tickets available by calling 01865 807600, via the website at http://www.storymuseum.org.uk/whats-on/1001-stories-telling-lines-narrative-art/ or in person via the café and shop.
