Watch this on your iPod - Vodcast available here
Andrew Frost discusses the sometimes difficult process of making TV programs about contemporary art and the even more vexed questions of who these shows are for, their reception within the art world and the dubious notion that TV can create a history.
Andrew is a COFA Alumni who has gone on to write for many publications here and abroad including The Sydney Morning Herald, Flash Art, Contemporary, Australian Art Collector, NewMatilda and Crikey. He wrote and presented two series of The Art Life for ABC1 and has completed the scripts for a third series.
This talk was recorded live at COFA on May 11, 2010 as part of the free COFA Talks public lecture series.
