Modern Painters

Monday 22 – Thursday 25 September 2003
Broadcast on Channel Four
At 19:55 after the Channel Four News

Modern Painters reveals the stories behind the work of four artists, through four short films broadcast on consecutive days. The programmes examine the state of new art being made in Britain today, through the eyes of four emerging painters. They examine why young artists are returning to established media, at a time when video, photography, installation and new media have attracted increased attention as art forms.

Modern Painters is a collaboration between Channel Four and Arts Council England, produced by Maverick / Hi8us South. Supported by Arts Council England’s New Audiences Programme.
