Art in Mind Series 1
Art in Mind creatively addresses the age old question of Why Art Matters through interviews with international and Australian artists from a diversity of backgrounds and in a variety of artistic disciplines. Episode 1: Chinese artist Ai Weiwei is one of the international art world's biggest names. Working at the intersection of art and activism he questions art's function and how we have become disconnected from the world around us.
Episode 2: Ryan Gander's work ranges from installations, sculpture to writing but through all disciplines he likes to leave space for the audience to interpret meaning. He discusses his Biennale of Sydney installation Other Places.
Episode 3: British artist Anya Gallaccio creates installations mostly with organic materials that decay over the period of their showing. She is interested in the transformation of the material and not being able to predict the outcome.
Episode 4: Brook Andrew's interdisciplinary artworks scrutinise dominant colonial narratives using the imagery and devices of museum practice. He collaborated with five other artists on his work What's Left Behind for the Biennale.
Episode 5: Wadawurrung Elder elder and self-taught artist Marlene Gilson started painting just over ten years ago at the age of 64 and hasn't stopped since. She is driven to paint her people back into the picture and back into history.
