In this talk, part of the Fitzrova Chapel’s Dwelling exhibition, Art critic Tabish Khan explores what makes good art and is there such a thing? What catches a critic’s eye and what do they hang in their home? Is there a right way of looking at art and can anyone appreciate art? An eye into the often impenetrable art world with a talk on how art is for everyone.
