We’re at the Royal Albert Hall ahead of this year’s Proms & artist Oscar Murillo on his new project


On Cultural Capital this week...After a year’s hiatus, the Finnish conductor Dalia Stasevska will take to the podium to lead the BBC Symphony Orchestra in the First Night of the Proms. We popped down the road to their home venue, the Royal Albert Hall, to see the last stage of preparations for one of the most anticipated music festivals in the world.Plus, since 2013 artist Oscar Murillo has sent pieces of blank canvas to schools around the globe with the instruction that they be affixed to classroom desks for a term, inviting students aged 10 to 16 to mark them however they like. Now the nearly 40,000 canvases that make up the project are going on display together for the first time in the sports hall at Cardinal Pole secondary school in Hackney, which Murillo attended after arriving with his family from Colombia. We headed down there to meet him.Also on the show, we visit the Grant Museum for this week's Thing of the WeekAnd finally, Anyone who has seen Luchino Visconti’s 1971 film Death in Venice will remember the luminous youth who plays Tadzio, the beautiful boy with whom the protagonist becomes dangerously obsessed. This really quite disturbing documentary focuses on that boy, dubbed by Visconti and then the world’s press as The Most Beautiful Boy in the World, and it tells how the fallout from his time in Venice, and an earlier tragedy that had already left its mark, has affected him ever since.Enjoy!Subscribe to the Evening Standard on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7RQon_YwCnp_LbPtEwW65w?sub_confirmation=1
