Frontseat - Zen and the Art...

This Sunday on Frontseat, TV One 10.25pm

New York-based painter Max Gimblett joins Oliver Driver in the Frontseat studio for a chin-wag about Art, Zen and the Alphabet. He’s home for Gow Langsford Gallery’s MGM exhibition, which links the work of the artists McCahon, Gimblett and Motherwell through their use of language and written signs. Gimblett has also recently been appointed to the honorary position of Visiting Professor to the Elam School of Fine Arts at the National Institute of Creative Arts & Industries.

Julie Hill films “Haka men” across the country and braves the Barmy Army HQ in a report on the strangely violent art direction in current rugby marketing campaigns. Adidas and Saatchi & Saatchi talk through their campaign concepts, while media studies academic Wayne Hope analyses the branding of a nation.

The country’s hotels and hostels have been bursting at the seams over the past month. But for many busy conference attendees and fanatical sports fans, the art on their hotel room walls is the most they’ll get to see of our rich arts scene. So what is on those walls and who put it there? Jeremy Hansen checks into a combination of luxurious and humble lodgings to find out.

Before departing for the World Music Festival – also known as the brass band world championships – in Kerkrade in the Netherlands, the National Band of New Zealand shut themselves away at Lincoln University for five days of intensive rehearsals. Jeremy Hansen, a brass band player in his high school days, went marching along to band camp.

ALSO, ARTSVILLE THIS SATURDAY 9th JULY: Part two of a profile of composer Gareth Farr features in TV One’s arts profile slot at 9.50pm this Saturday.

Best regards,
The Frontseat Team
TV One, Sunday Nights (repeated the following Sunday at 6.30am)
