Lewis Hyde: The Gift

Lewis Hyde: The Gift

Friday 8 March, 4pm-5pm

Al Khayma, InterContinental, DFC

Authors: Lewis Hyde
Now a modern classic, The Gift is a brilliantly orchestrated defense of the value of creativity and of its importance in a culture increasingly governed by money and overrun with commodities.

Essayist and cultural critic Lewis Hyde and transforms our view of the world, but more specifically, art. Art survives without a market, but where there is no gift there is no market.

Acclaimed by authors as varied as Margaret Atwood, David Foster Wallace and Zadie Smith, The Gift is a genuinely groundbreaking book. Twenty-five years on from the book’s publication, Professor Hyde will speak about its continuing relevance in this not-to-be missed event.
