Behind the Scenes 20th September 2021

View descriptionShare

We start this week’s show in WA where our Perth- Based Correspondent, Helen Simondson, Manager of the Western Australian Museum Boola Bardip, will let us know what’s happening in the west before introducing us to her special guest, Artistic Director of the Awesome Festival, Jenny Simpson.

Then it’s off to Healesville in Victoria and the TarraWarra Museum of Art where their latest First Nations Curator Stacie Piper, will introduce us to their latest exhibition, Wilam Biik (even if we can’t quite get into the gallery yet) which she describes as an exhibition arising from the unsevered connection between First Peoples of South East Australia, their Country, and their Ancestors. After chatting with Stacie we’ll meet one of the exhibition’s artists (who is no stranger to Behind the Scenes), Kent Morris.

Further afield, near Nowra in NSW, Accessible Arts Australia and the beautiful Bundanon Estate has just announced the recipients of its Artists in Residence programme, meant for 2021 but (like all things affected by Covid19) now taking place in 2022. We’ll meet support worker Zac Fenn who’ll tell us about one of the recipients, Sydney based blind and non-verbal artist Luke Abdallah.

It’s all on this week’s edition of Behind the Scenes with Chris Thompson right here on Vision Australia Radio.
