CAN ART MAKE US HAPPY?
6.30pm Thursday 2 March 2017
Hosted by Sarah Kanowski, presenter of ABC Radio National's Books and Arts.
Contemporary art can be seen as a form of entertainment, yet our experience of art goes beyond simple delight. Can pleasure and meaning co-exist in art, and what does this mean for today’s art museum?
Guests announced soon.
6.30pm Thursday 9 March 2017
Hosted by Paul Barclay, presenter of ABC Radio National’s Big Ideas.
