082-ingrid-kellenbach-lying-nude-adelaideThis week we reveal what’s behind attitudes towards nudity in art in Adelaide.

Our special guest is Ingrid Kellenbach, CEO of the Adelaide Central School Of Art. She is pictured with a snippet from the famous painting, Lying Nude by Amedeo Modigliani, which features in IS IT NEWS.

She holds our hands and guides us through a viewing of attitudes and expectations surrounding art and its exploration of nudity.

Nigel has given an artistic twist to the IS IT NEWS challenge

In the MADE TO MOVE MINUTE, Max Martin will stay on theme and explore issues around body image and your health!

George Inglis reflects on Adelaide’s history of pushing boundaries.

And our music is a recording in the flesh by Fergus O’Regan called Naked In The Loungeroom.

But first, David Washington from In Daily with the midweek news wrap, Talk Of The Town.

00:08:19 Opening Discussion
 Our interview with Ingrid Kellenbach from Adelaide Central School of Art begins here. Topics include:

  • What is the ACSA
  • Never too old to start
  • The role of parents
  • Should this program have an explicit tag
  • The @CityOfAdelaide tweet about the Venus de Canova statue from 1892 – it was controversial back then, but would Council be game to commission such work now?
  • Life Drawing Models and the importance of nudity to artists – it’s not just about the naughty bits
  • Do artists get aroused?
  • Should artists pull back from confronting imagery, so they can eat?
  • We have a warped view of nudity, in an international sense
  • National Art Gallery exhibition – visitors must be nude
  • Leunig and body image
  • Do artists exacerbate damaging expectations surrounding body image?
00:40:44 Made To Move Minute

Max Martin and/or Dr Nathan Harten from iNform Health and Fitness Solutions, Norwood, present a thoughtful minute for pondering more ways and reasons to get moving and improve your health.

This week: Body image.

00:42:22 Is It News?

Nigel does his best to present three headlines (one real one and two he’s made up) from a South Australian publication – old or new – and the team has to guess which is the authentic news story.

Nigel gave the quiz a nudity and art theme this week.

  • This led to a discussion about the language of art. Are enough of us familiar with it?
  • Ingrid has thoughts about how all of us can ‘bone up’ on the language.
  • Visiting galleries helps. We are time poor. Adelaide Central School of Art is open late some nights to help make art accessible.
  • Steve asks Ingrid to explain an artwork consisting of a large, white, weather balloon suspended from a hook with a set of scales.
  • Art sponsorship and the difficulty of benefactors understanding visual art.
  • Seth Godin and our antipathy for trying new things.
  • A reminder
01:11:23 Time To Think
Reflections about our society by self-confessed policy wonk and public transport user, George Inglis.
01:14:19 Musical Pilgrimage
Some other topics before we talk about the song:

  • Current exhibitions at the Adelaide Central School Of Art at Glendside
  • Too easy to watch television. We need to make the effort to go out and see contemporary art
  • Steve’s 6yo daughter’s artwork is briefly critiqued
  • Kids okay with nudity, moreso than many adults
  • What lets us or inspires us to make bawdy ditties like tonight’s song?

And our song this week, Naked In The Loungeroom, by Fergus O’Regan was recorded in front of Adrian Miller on his Radio Adelaide Monday night music program, Songcatcher.
