As part of the Great Artists | Great Teachers exhibition and 250th anniversary of the Royal Academy of Arts, join us for In Conversation with Sir Michael Craig-Martin RA, and Dr Sarah Chapman, Curator and Artistic Director of The Arts Institute, exploring the special character, methodologies, and value of art education at every level.

Sir Michael studied Fine Art at the Yale University School of Art and Architecture and, on completion of his studies in 1966 he moved to London, where he lives today. He had his first one-man exhibition at the Rowan Gallery in London in 1969. Since then, he has shown regularly both in the UK and abroad. He is also widely recognised as an influential teacher particularly at Goldsmiths in London. His former students include many of those artists who made a significant impact on the art scene in the 1990s, such as Damien Hirst, Gary Hume and Sarah Lucas.
