Royal Academy’s Artistic Director to speak in Plymouth
Tim Marlow, award-winning radio and television broadcaster, writer and museum director, who has worked with some of the most important artists of our time, will visit Plymouth later this month to give a special talk, which will cast a sometimes irreverent glance at his diverse career.
Organised by The Box in collaboration with The Arts Institute, University of Plymouth, Tim Marlow’s talk on Thursday 24 October will see him share insights and highlights from his 25-year career in the art world.
Having originally trained as an art historian, Tim is currently Artistic Director of the Royal Academy of Arts (RA). He joined the RA in 2014 and now oversees six departments including collections, learning and exhibitions.
Prior to this he was Director of Exhibitions at White Cube for more than a decade. He has also presented over 100 TV documentaries and lectured, chaired and participated in panel discussions about art and culture all over the world.
During his career Tim Marlow has worked with many internationally-renowned artists including Ai Weiwei, Antony Gormley, Damien Hirst, Anselm Kiefer, Tacita Dean, Gilbert & George and Tracey Emin.
Nigel Hurst, Head of Contemporary Arts at The Box said: “Bringing Tim to Plymouth to share his experiences is a real coup for the city. He’s had a stellar career as a director, curator, writer and broadcaster. His down-to-earth perspective combined with humour and passion make him one of the art world’s most influential people – and a really compelling speaker.”
