    COVID19 SPECIAL EPISODE: Dr. Kate Just, Dr. Tal Fitzpatrick, Zara Sullivan and Nathan Beard on their COVID art projects

    COVID19 SPECIAL EPISODE: Dr. Kate Just, Dr. Tal Fitzpatrick, Zara Sullivan and Nathan Beard on their COVID art projects

    This is the 5th COVID special episode. In this episode, I have four high-achieving artists: Dr. Kate Just, Dr. Tal Fitzpatrick, Zara Sullivan and Nathan Beard talking about their art projects that they have been carrying out during COVID19 and speaking about their creative process and mind-space in making these projects during the COVID down time. Dr. Kate and Dr, Tal are producing a collaborative project titled: #covid19quilt on the instagram platform @covid19quilt. Zara is delivering her project “Angle Exchange” and hosting a live performance channel on IGTV.  Nathan is managing his island of Slovetzia in Animal Crossing game where he has built an art gallery and migrated his 1st life exhibition tilted White Gilt 2.0 and originally shown at FirstDraft into this Slovetzia gallery.  To me, like many other artists and people who struggled in the 1st lockdown period to keep up a creative life and now is adjusting mentally again in the 2nd lockdown, hearing about these artists' wonderful artworks and persistence in art-making, is absolutely inspiring and stimulating. I hope this episode could bring the same positive and creative energy to the listeners and help you all happily go through the new low of the 2nd lockdown time.

    COVID19 SPECIAL EPISODE: Anu Radha, Dr. Priya Srinivasan and Dr. Tammy Wong Hulbert on arts in response to the COVID19 racism

    In this 4th COVID19 special episode, I have invited two artist and educator, Dr. Tammy wong Hulbert, and Dr. Priya Srinivasan and a phycologist, Anu Radha to make a conversation together about how the arts and artists could respond to the COVID19 racism against the Asian population in the western societies.  In this episode, Tammy told us about a collaborative social engagement project called Unmasked selfies in Solidarity that she had taken part in. This project had widely-reached on Facebook platform. Tammy also talked about how her visual art practice had been enriched through her roles as a curator and academic. Priya, with her rich knowledge on Australian performance art and the subject on cultural and gender equality in the postcolonial and capitalist societies, shared her view on what was the role of arts and artists that COVID19 had indicated to us, and her critical thoughts on how COVID19 broke the Western traditional notion that "artists are solo genius". Moreover, Anu from her professional psychologist perspective, did not only give an explanation on the stress and anxiety that were brought by racism and the time of COVID19, but also shared many brilliant valuable and wise exercises for thoughts for the artists and everyone to practice. There are so much more in this conversation to take on.  As this conversation was made before the #blacklivesmatter global movement took off, the subjects of racism in this conversation were focused on the Asian communities in the western societies. However, I think that the discussions on the topic about the arts&racism in this conversation has a broad application. The value of the speakers' words doesn't lessen due to limit of the timing. Please sit back and enjoy this empowering episode!  Episode Note:Dr. Tammy Wong Hulberthttps://www.tammywonghulbert.com Unmasked Selfies in SolidarityThe team of collaborators of this project includes: Isabella Capezio, Marnie Badham, Klare Lansen, Sherry Liu, Wilson Yeung, Jan Sze Wing Ting, Rosina Yuan and Tammy Wong Hulbert and the RMIT School of Art community.

    29, COVID19 Special Episode: Ann McGinley, Nico Reddaway and Sarah Rudledge on working creatively in a solitary environment during oversea artist residencies

    29, COVID19 Special Episode: Ann McGinley, Nico Reddaway and Sarah Rudledge on working creatively in a solitary environment during oversea artist residencies

    This is the 3rd special episode for COVID19 time. In this episode, three visual artists: Sarah Rudlege, Ann Mcginley and Nico Reddaway and I made a delightful conversation about their pre-COVID19 oversea residencies. Sarah, as the last participating artist in the artist residency program of Matsushima Bunko Museum, went to Matsushima island in Japan; Ann took Casa Na Iiha artist residency in Iihabela in Brazil; and Nico engaged in the art program for asylum seeker refugees in Finland and worked for the art workshops at Heikinharju Reception Centre in Oulu, when she visited Oulu as an exchange student with University of Oulu. Listening to them talking about their times outside Australia in this COVID19 isolation, was like to hear fictional stories. But it took my mind on a pleasant trip across the brick walls of my flat and national borders. Before the conversation, I imagined a lonely working environment that they would have confronted in their times overseas, and expected to get some tips from them to overcome the challenge in this solitary working environment. I hoped these tips would be applicable for artists who struggle in COVID 19 social isolation life. However, their answers were surprised me and opened up a new way for me to think about the idea of working in solitude.  I hope you will enjoy to listening to this episodes.
