Andrew Graham-Dixon - Rome Unpacked
Wednesday 25 July 2018
Leading art critic, writer and arts television presenter for more than 20 years, Andrew Graham-Dixon returns to the Festival with two fascinating talks.
The hour-long afternoon talk will be based on his Italian adventures by moped with chef Giorgio Locatelli, revealing how art and food were inextricably linked in Roman culture.
The full-length evening talk will be based on his latest
BBC series Art, Power & Passion: The Story of the Royal
Collection exploring the dazzling collection of art and decorative objects owned by Her Majesty the Queen, containing over a million items.
Andrew's lecturing manner is refreshingly un-academic, involving much improvisation and storytelling
to the delight of past King’s Lynn audiences.
