This Sunday on Frontseat, TV One 10.35pm


Art is one of the fastest-growing sections on Internet auction site Trade Me. More than $300,000 in art trades has been turned over on the site in the last twelve months. Who’s making the money and who’s finding the diamonds amongst the very rough offerings?

Josie McNaught talks to buyers, sellers, dealers, expert on-line art auctioneers, and good ol’ consumer know-it-all, David Russell. PLUS! Oliver Driver demonstrates how to sell a painting on Trade Me – meet the winning bidder!


Apart from a comic spin around foreshore ownership issues in the brilliant ‘Wheeler’s Luck’, politics and New Zealand theatre have had a gently-gently relationship of late. But two new plays might change all that. Julie Hill talks to the directors of the foreign-penned “Guantanamo” and locally-written “Baghdad, Baby” about putting the world on the New Zealand stage.


If it feels like sometimes art biennales are taking over the world, that may be because there are more than 100 of the things around the globe. The next one in our neck of the woods is the 2006 Biennale of Sydney. Its curator Dr Charles Merewether was in New Zealand last week to check out the local talent, so we checked him out, too.

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