Wanstead Book Festival presents: Will Gompertz

Thursday 14 September 2023 at 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Artists see things differently. Will Gompertz is familiar to audiences throughout the country from his years as the BBC’s Arts Editor. For years Will was a fixture on the Ten O’Clock News as he would introduce Turner or Booker Prize winners, or explain why a statue or painting had been sold for record prices. No surprise that he has been called ‘the best teacher you never had’, and in his new book he explains how anyone can look at and experience the world with an artist’s heightened powers of perception. In See What You’re Missing, we learn how Rembrandt can help us see ourselves, how David Hockney helps us to see nature and how Frida Kahlo can help us to see through pain.  In his post-BBC life, Will is artistic director at the Barbican, and is a world-leading expert and champion of the arts.
