Join Professor Ted Snell over dinner as he explores four art scandals you may never have heard about, but which might change your views about art, artists and the society in which we live.
Why are scandals in the arts so newsworthy? Whether it’s a fake or a theft, an offensive nude or a piece of incomprehensible sculpture, everyone gets involved, everyone has an opinion and the risk-takers, ratbags and rogues behind the latest scandal become instant celebrities.
