Marlow Meets

ARTS CHANNEL – Tuesdays from 6 July, 8.00pm

Tim Marlow meets some of the world’s most admired creative individuals to reveal how visual art inspires and motivates them in their life and work. Most creative people have a passion for visual art. For actors, writers or film directors, and not least artists, visual art is an enormous source of inspiration. This series will celebrate that passion through the exploration of a series of artworks chosen by the guest. In each film we visit the guest’s favourite museum or gallery to film six of their favourite artworks – be they paintings, sculptures or photographs. The result is not only a compelling journey into the nature of creativity but also a fascinating look at the life and career of each guest. Tim Marlow’s guests include:

Michael Palin – Tate Britain, London

Mike Leigh – Cartoon Museum, London

Paul Smith – at his studio, London

Tony Bennett – Metropolitan Museum, New York

Renee Fleming – Neue Galerie and Chuck Close’s Studio, New York
