How do you tell if art is ‘good’?

In this newsletter we look at Grayson Perry’s Reith Lectures, an app that lets you ‘touch’ Van Goghs and Damien Hirst does kids’ books

Grayson Perry, the Turner Prize-winning potter gave the first of his Reith Lectures that was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on how to identify whether art is ‘good’.He said: “How do we tell if something is good? And who tells us that it’s good? That’s perhaps even more important. And of course now, in the art world as it is, does it really matter?”

An artist widely acknowledged as ‘good’ is Van Gogh. But how good is this latest app designed to let you ‘touch’ the great man’s work? See for yourself here






Damien Hirst has given an interview on his latest venture – a children’s book 

Each letter in the book is represented by one of Hirst’s artworks. Our, and Hirst’s favourite is ‘L is for Lamb’ taken from his 1994 work Away from the Flock. Check out Monograph’s Damien Hirst works here
