Join Will Gompertz in conversation with Gregor Muir for a lunchtime talk at the ICA. Will Gompertz joined the BBC as arts editor in December 2009. Gompertz' newly-created role marked a beginning of BBC’s new commitment to wider broadcasting of the arts and improved collaboration with art institutions.
Prior to joining BBC Gompertz spent 7 years working for Tate. As director of Tate Media he was responsible for Tate Online, the UK’s most popular art website, and Tate Etc, the UK’s highest-circulation art magazine. He also set up a TV and film production unit devoted to creating arts programmes for Channel 4, ITV, Aardman Animation and many more.
Gompertz has worked within the arts since early 1980s and has been covering on arts for major publications such as the Times or the Guardian. He was a co-founder of Purple House and Shots, a publishing company devoted to the moving image.
