DVD: Colour Theory with Richard Bell

Leading Indigenous artist and provocateur Richard Bell is your amiable host for this excellent series from director James Marshall, producers Susan Moylan-Coombs and Jane Davidson and writer Hetti Perkins. The episodes are wonderfully unhurried, allowing artists to speak for themselves, for the viewer to absorb the art works and, critically, appreciate the country from which they evolved. The selection of innovative artists takes us into film and installation (Warwick Thornton, a wonderful episode, largely filmed in Alice Springs), street art (Reko Rennie), painting-photography (Nici Cumpston), stage design (Jacob Nash and the evolution of Bangarra’s Terrain), painting and sculpture (Tony Albert), sculpture and music (Archie Moore), weaving and sculpture (Vicky West) and exquisite glass sculpture (Yhonnie Scarce).

Platform Papers, No 35: Jon Rose, The Music of Place: Reclaiming a practice

This essay comprises a bracing alternative view of the history and nature of Australian music, underpinning an argument for the greater recognition and appreciation, aesthetically and in terms of financial reward, of Australian musicians. In his review of the essay, Julian Knowles writes, “Rose’s approach…closely resembles his prolific and influential musical output. His arguments demonstrate a lateral, creative form of thinking that challenges traditional understandings of history, culture and genre, resulting in a provocative collision of ideas out of which a powerful logic emerges” (see page 48).
