BAGSHAW ART LECTURE the first in the Insiders v Outsiders series

An image from the Bible story of Jacob and Esau is the starting point for the first lecture in the Insiders v Outsiders series being given by art historian Simon Poë at Bagshaw on Sunday 13 January, 2pm start. Tickets cost £3.50 per person and there is no need to book.

What is it all about?

The lecture is called ‘Behold, Esau my brother is a hairy man and I am a smooth man’, will look at the dominance of the ‘smooth men’, the insiders who run things, in comparison to the ‘hairy men’, the outsiders who supply the creative energy and fruitful chaos.

 “The story of non-identical twins Jacob and Esau is the starting point for a wild ride taking in Bible stories, Greek myths, the Court of King Arthur, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the Wild Man of the Woods, and much, much more,”

commented Simon.

Sounds great, is there more to come?

On Sunday, 2g7 January, Simon talks about the ‘Insiders and Outsiders’ in relation to the Royal Academy of Arts in London and in the final lecture on Sunday, 10 February, he discusses ‘Lord Leighton and the Academy of the Undead’.
