Same old, same new

‘Same Old, Same New…’ will be the subject of the lecture to be given by Aliki Braine at the meeting of The Arts Society Dukeries on Wednesday 6th June at 1.50pm in St Anne’s Church Hall, Worksop S80 1NJ.
You might think it’s easy to spot the difference between contemporary and historical art, but how about what they have in common? Can old masters help us understand works such as ‘the pile of bricks’ and ‘the unmade bed’? This lecture explores whether the old masters can help us understand modern works, and whether artists’ intentions and strategies have really changed across the centuries.

The society’s 4th July meeting will be held at the Civic Centre, Carlton-in-Lindrick, which will become the society’s new venue. In this Jubilee Year celebration of NADFAS, the theme of the meeting will be ‘gold’ and there will be a lecture from the Assay Office.

Visitors are very welcome to meetings at a cost of £6.00 per lecture. There is a free car park at the hall and coffee and tea are available after the lecture.
