The Art of Failure

Art Stories

Oct 3 2018 • 26 mins

What does it mean to fail, and how can it lead to success? We hear the human stories behind art and failure.

In this episode we ask what it means to fail and explore how the risk of failure can inspire us. Artist Lubaina Himid says ‘you can’t succeed at a work of art unless you dance with failure’. Hear artists, a poet, a novelist and a dancer reflect on their experience of art and failure.


Featuring Lubaina Himid, Akram Khan, Scottee, Tracey Chevalier, and Michael Symmons-Robert.
