An Evening with Dr James Fox: The Healing Power Of Art
Tuesday May 17th, 8pm
Pinder Hall. Lower Road, Cookham
We are, it seems, finally emerging from one of the gravest crises in centuries — a crisis that has killed millions of people, decimated the world’s economies, and changed our lives in fundamental ways. In this uplifting talk, Cambridge art historian James Fox argues that art has the power to help us come to terms with such disasters, and perhaps even to recover from them.
He will illustrate his talk with some of history’s greatest artworks — including a selection of paintings by Cookham’s very own Stanley Spencer.
