Jo Baring, Director of The Ingram Collection, will chair a panel discussion alongside contributors from her new book (published by Lund Humphries), Simon Martin, Director, Pallant House, and Aindrea Emelife, Art Historian and Independent Curator, drawing out what we mean by ‘modern British art’, why we seek to define what ‘British’ art is, different ways of looking at this popular period, and consider the contemporary by thinking about the links between modern British and contemporary artists.
