    Art and ethics: Nick Mitzevitch on repatriation

    Art and ethics: Nick Mitzevitch on repatriation

    Who owns art and when should it be returned? With many objects in museums and galleries being the product of a colonial past, we look at how works can be repatriated to their original owners. This episode we speak with Nick Mitzevitch, Director of the National Gallery of Australia, about the NGA’s recent history of returning works to India and what this might lead to for the Gallery’s Indigenous collections.

    Hosted by George Dunford.
    Our theme music is ‘Chasing Waterfalls’ by Tim Shiel.

    Circus and the art of community

    Circus and the art of community

    The trust and rapport between circus performers is clearly visible on stage. Offstage, such bonds connect a troupe’s members with a global community of circus artists as well as one another. In this episode of The ArtsHubbub, Jascha Boyce and Lachlan Binns from acclaimed Adelaide company Gravity and Other Myths talk about the importance of connection, making art in lockdown, and the popularity of Australian circus on the world stage.

    Hosted by George Dunford.
    Our theme music is ‘Chasing Waterfalls’ by Tim Shiel.
