Have you good taste?

Talk | Les Cotils Centre

Monday 20 February 2017 - 18:30 until 20:00

This is the title of a survey conducted in 1929 to test the nation's artistic judgement. The results showed what a puzzler for the connoisseur this question is. Questions of taste mix up judgements of artistic quality with notions of social acceptability.

Lecturer David Phillips will explore the conflicting ideas of 'good taste' over the last 87 years.

This event has been organised by the Guernsey Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
