Cass ART: Bob and Roberta Smith Lecture
What’s the real value of art? Owning art? Or making and looking at it? Should museums and art galleries become places that we visit to understand events that are affecting our world today? What's the responsibility of the artist to engage in politics?
Bob and Roberta Smith's talk addresses these issues via a diverse, colourful and humorous practice. Bob and Roberta Smith are probably best known for their paintings Make Art Not War (Tate collection) and David Nott interview by Eddie Mairshown in the Royal Academy this summer. Bob and Roberta Smith also released a film, Art Party in 2013 that questioned government policy on art education. Bob and Roberta Smith are also known as Patrick Brill, Associate Professor in Fine Art at the CASS, London Metropolitan University.
