Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders, the £30,000 Hepworth Prize for Sculpture artists, and Bamber Gascoigne on his medieval West Horsley Place on the Heritage At Risk register.
Chrissie Hynde, singer and founding member of the Pretenders, discusses Alone, the band's first album in eight years.
A new £30,000 arts award, The Hepworth Prize for Sculpture, aims to recognise an artist who has made a significant contribution to the development of contemporary sculpture in Britain. The shortlisted artists Phyllida Barlow, Steven Claydon, Helen Marten and David Medalla share their thoughts on the practice of sculpture today.
Today Historic England published its annual Heritage At Risk register featuring buildings identified as in danger of being lost due to neglect or decay. The Grade I listed medieval house, West Horsley Place, inherited by the historian and broadcaster Bamber Gascoigne, has been added to the register. He discusses what this means for his plans to create an opera house on the site.
Joe Queenan reports from New York on the cultural hinterland of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
