Free movement of artists 'must be protected' after Brexit. Nicholas Serota, head of Arts Council England, and V&A director Tristram Hunt say the art world must become more international.

They were speaking in London at a conference for the Creative Industries Federation. Serota, who stepped down as director of the Tate last year to head Arts Council England, said there was a risk Britain would “stagnate” and become “irrelevant to a changing world” if it chose to shut its doors on a two-way flow of talent from abroad.

His thoughts were echoed by Hunt, director of the V&A Museum and a former Labour MP, who said he was “deeply concerned with the impact of Brexit on the single European cultural market”.
