SKY ARTS ANNOUNCES NEW DOCUMENTARY ON ARTIST MAGGI HAMBLING

A brand-new encounter with one of our greatest living artists, Maggi Hambling. Join art historian and curator, Kate Bryan, as she fully immerses herself in the life and work of this iconic tour de force, known as much for her acerbic wit as her artistic genius.


Filming many of her experiences on her iPhone, Kate spends long days with Maggi at home and in her studio, where the artist rises daily at 5am, and sets to work despite her recent near-fatal heart attack.



Discussing everything from her creative processes and her muses to speeding tickets, cinnamon buns and being a reluctant queer icon, this one-off film draws an intimate portrait of an artist usually out of the limelight, and explores her acclaimed body of work.


My Week with Maggi Hambling was commissioned by Phil Edgar-Jones, Director of Sky Arts and Entertainment, for Zai Bennett, Managing Director of Content for Sky UK and Ireland. The Commissioning Editor for Sky is Benedetta Pinelli. The film is produced by Factory Films; the Executive Producer is Lisa Fairbank.
