    Special thanks to Grace Herbert, Linda Dement and Shotgun Co-ordinator, Kylie Johnson.

    S05 E01 The Signal and the Noise

    S05 E01 The Signal and the Noise

    In our first episode for season 5 celebrated Australian artist, Louisa Bufardeci tells us about her background as an artist and how her 2012 LED installation Ethnicities to Nations came to be. Bufardeci discusses how the role of data and coding systems have informed her practice.
    The artwork Ethnicities to Nations is part of the group exhibition, Unspoken Rule which presents work by Australian and International artists Archie Barry, Liam James, Annika Koops, Roee Rosen and Artur Zmijiewski. Curated by Stevie S. Han, the exhibition re-examines the shifting sense of political and cultural agency that characterised identity politics in the 1990s, and which is finding new urgency with artists working today. Unspoken Rule is showing at Contemporary Art Tasmania until 24 February 2019.

    S04 E04 Stories from the Inside: Brigita Ozolins

    S04 E04 Stories from the Inside: Brigita Ozolins

    Our final episode for 2018 is also the second episode of our "Stories from the Inside" sub-series. Our original cal-out for this series was intended to be a snappy single episode of stories from arts workers and artists about their work and careers. Instead we received some personal, thoughtful interviews that deserved their own episodes. In this episode we hear from artist and lecturer Brigita Ozolins and in 2019 we look forward to bringing you further stories from the inside.

    What are you looking at? is produced by Lisa Campbell-Smith and Pip Stafford for Contemporary Art Tasmania. Mixdown by Brendan Walls and soundtrack by Josh Santospirito.

    S04E03 Stories from the Inside: Fiona Hamilton

    This episode is the first of our sub-series "Stories from the Inside" - an intimate look at the lives and concerns of artists and arts workers. When we went looking for stories, we were expecting easy soundbites that could be turned into one snappy episode, but what we got instead were personal, interesting interviews that deserved their own space.

    In this episode we speak with Tasmanian Aboriginal artist, activist and agitator, Fiona Hamilton.

Art! Art! Art! Art!

Great conversations based in local (Tasmanian) culture, but of more universal cultural concern.
Booyah. That’s right - booyah. Or if you prefer - BAM.

Insightful conversations about the art world

Thanks for doing such an awesome job with this podcast - I've been looking for something like this for a while! The subjects are relevant to me as an art lover and as someone trying to work as an artist. The presenters and interviewees are easy to listen too and engaging. The sound and production quality are top notch. I look forward to more :D
