55. Artistic Obsessions: Tom de Freston and Amy Key

Sat 8 Jul 2023
6:00pm - 7:00pm | Burgage Hall - Event has now taken place.

Amy Key’s non-fiction debut Arrangements in Blue is a mellifluously beautiful homage to the art of others and what we can do with it. It springs from her lifelong love of Joni Mitchell’s album Blue, and explores the many ways to love and live – both with others and alone. Tom de Freston’s Wreck is a multi-layered work: a piece of fevered historical research into the life of painter Théodore Géricault and the stories around his most famous work, The Raft of the Medusa. This talk will explore the preoccupations which spurred de Freston and Key to write about these figures they’ve never met, and the modes they might offer for making art and living life. Chaired by Dzifa Benson.
