Sunday Feature

Paul Morley asks where we can find the avant-garde today and whether it still exists, meeting artists, musicians, comedians and writers who think it still lives. In the company of art historian Anne Massey, Morley goes on an avant-garde tour, beginning at the one-time home of surrealist Roland Penrose and photographer Lee Miller, going on to the modernist masterpiece of Erno Goldfinger, 2 Willow Road, before meeting its architect, Peter Salter. Paul also delves into the archives of Jasia Reichardt and husband Nick Wadley, as well as talking to former head of Central St Martins College Willie Walters, jazz pianist Steve Beresford, Gregor Muir of the ICA and the Tate, comedian Simon Munnery, former Gang of Four member Jon King and evolutionary neuropsychologist Gilly Forrester.
