Has anyone seen a masterpiece of contemporary art? Are there any masterpieces of contemporary art? In this country or this region – or the whole world? Is there an artist living in our country, region or nation today that we can call great, just as we say Michelangelo, Rembrandt, van Gogh or Matisse are “great”? How good are the art and artists of our time? Will they be remembered in the future? Professor Godfrey will discuss what “masterpiece” or being a great artist may mean today. He will look at works both made globally and in South-east Asia.
