Cultural Exchange

Tracey Emin launches a major new arts project for Radio 4, called Cultural Exchange.

Each weekday on Front Row, 75 leading creative figures will reveal their passion for a favourite book, piece of music, film or other work of art.

Artist Tracey Emin, actor Adrian Lester, ballerina Tamara Rojo and novelist Chimamanda Adichie (all pictured) are among the names signed up to Cultural Exchange.

Also taking part: Bernardo Bertolucci, PD James, Nigel Kennedy, Meera Syal, Howard Jacobson, Suggs, Nicola Benedetti, Peter Bazalgette and Jeanette Winterson.

Cultural Exchange launches on Front Row on Monday 22 April with Tracey Emin on Vermeer’s painting Lady Writing a Letter with her Maid.

Each chosen work will have its own webpage, with additional clips from Radio 4’s archive about the choice. And the full Cultural Exchange experience will be available as a daily download.
