Frontseat, this Sunday 17th Oct, 10.10pm TV One

Our Art: Te Papa has just opened a new semi-permanent collection of NZ art treasures from 1940 - today, featuring McCahons, Killeens, Albrechts and more. Jeremy Hansen asks art & visual culture director Jonathan Mane-Wheoki and the general public whether it's everything they wanted.

America Loves Us: Former Te Papa CEO Cheryll Sotheran was invited to speak at the opening of the new National Museum of the American Indian in Washington DC, which used Te Papa as a strong model for its development. Dame Cheryll tells Frontseat why.

Hip Hop Holiday: A NZ Herald editorial declared that a grant of $26,000 linked to the phrase 'hip hop' should have set off alarm bells - in the same week that Scribe won 7 Tui NZ Music Awards. Amomai Pihama asks rappers, politicians, academics, and a family member of the 'Tamati hip hop tour scandal' about the economic and social benefits of hip hop culture.

Love In A Cold Climate: Kate Sylvester loves books and Frontseat has a sneak preview of the Mitford-inspired collection she'll be showing on Tuesday 19th October during NZ Fashion Week.

Best regards,

The Bard of Avon may well be smirking up the sleeves of his lace doublet at the irony of Will Smith's Oscar debacle, but now that the initial furore has dissipated, it's worth revisiting the movie for which Denzel Washington was also nominated. More>>

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>

Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>

Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
