What is art for? Part one

What is art for? Part one Alistair Hudson, Director of Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art

As part of our 'Beyond the Gallery' programme we filmed a series of interviews with the Director of mima and Turner Prize judge Alistair Hudson

In part one, Alistair talks about the use value of art and poses the questions: What is the function of art in the 21st century and what role should it play in people's lives?
