Artists have always been early adopters of new technologies, but in the last few years new technologies have appeared more quickly than ever before. Should we be excited about these dramatic changes, or worried? Are they a flash in the pan, or here to stay?

James Fox is joining you in The Garden to explore how today's artists are embracing the latest digital media — including virtual reality, augmented reality, artificial intelligence and, of course, the now ubiquitous NFTs — to redefine both art and the art world.

James is an art historian at the University of Cambridge, as well as a curator, award-winning broadcaster and the best-selling author of The World According To Colour.
