Turner Prize, The Crucible, Gabriele Finaldi, Patrick deWitt

The Turner Prize exhibition opens at Tramway in Glasgow - the art critic Moira Jeffrey takes us on a tour of the highlights. The Turner Prize is awarded to a British artist under 50 for an outstanding exhibition or other presentation of their work in the preceding year and the winner will be announced in December. This year's four shortlisted artists are Assemble, Bonnie Camplin, Janice Kerbel and Nicole Wermers. To celebrate 100 years from Arthur Miller's birth, two British theatres are currently staging one of his best known plays. Written in the 1950s, at the height of the McCarthy witch hunt, The Crucible continues to be relevant today despite being set in the 17th century. Theatre director Caroline Steinbeis, from Manchester's Royal Exchange, joins Tom Morris, Artistic director at the Bristol Old Vic, to discuss their two productions and the play's continued cultural resonance. Gabriele Finaldi, the new director of the National Gallery, discusses his role as the head of one of the UK's most high profile cultural institutions. He explains his plans for the future of the gallery and discusses the challenges ahead, at a time when funding for the arts has taken a hit. Canadian writer Patrick deWitt talks about his new novel, Undermajordomo Minor, a subversive take on the fairy tale genre. The book is his follow-up to the Man Booker shortlisted The Sisters Brothers in 2011 which became a best-seller. Presenter: Samira Ahmed Producer: Elaine Lester.…read more
