COFA Talks - Daniel Browning: Art and the Media
Watch this on your iPod - Vodcast available here
Why do particular artists receive so much media coverage, and others none at all? How do editors choose which stories to run, and which to ignore? Why do journalists write about particular stories? Does anyone read 'art criticism' any more? Is a picture in a newspaper worth 1000 words?
Daniel Browning, presenter and producer of ABC Radio National's Indigenous arts program, Awaye! discusses the secrets of their trade. He is from the Minjungbal clan of the Bundjalung nation whose traditional country is on the far north coast of NSW.
This talk was recorded live at COFA on October 12, 2010 as part of the free COFA Talks public lecture series.
