Another Tuesday Talk

This morning's Tuesday Talk at the Whitworth was a bit dull.  It dealt with an exhibition few in the audience will have seen (because it was in London) and none of us will ever see in future (because it closed last month). On the way home- prompted by the speaker's characterisation of himself as a "high modernist"  who distrusts narrative-  we discussed whether art could ever free itself from narrative and decided it couldn't.
