They are two of the most notorious artists working today, but we rarely hear about Chinese contemporary art star Ai Weiwei and YBA extraordinaire Damien Hirst in the same breath.
To kick off London Art Studies' wonderful autumn season of talks and classes, these two heavyweights are going head to head in the first of a series of Great Art Debates at the Bulgari Hotel. So if you've been wondering what all the fuss is about the Ai Weiwei Royal Academy exhibition or why Damien Hirst is opening up his own gallery in Vauxhall this October, this is one of the best talks in London to get some essential insider knowledge.
LAS Evenings: Great Art Debate
Contemporary art experts Ben Street and Lizzie Perrotte will pit these stellar artists against each other using key works and past critical discussion before the audience can get involved and decide for themselves who is the victor. Hosted in the lovely surroundings of the Bulgari Hotel, this informal debate puts two fascinating artists in the spotlight.
So if you are looking for London art classes for adults, look no further: we love LAS's selection of courses, which keep you in the know about the hottest topics in the art world. Click here for more information regarding the autumn season.
