Does moving to a new city encourage creativity? Can an outsider’s perspective help us see things in new ways?

From Claude Monet’s oil paintings to Zineb Sedira’s installations and Zabou’s street art, generations of French artists have been influenced by their time in London. Join historian Charlotte Faucher as she explores the appeal of the city.

To see works by some of the artists discussed, visit The EY Exhibition: Impressionists in London, French Artists in Exile (1870-1904), Tate Britain, 2 November 2017 – 7 May 2018
