Arts on Sunday for Sunday 20 October 2013
12:43 Actor Dean Stockwell
As a child star Dean Stockwell worked with great screen greats like Erroll Flynn. He's now in his 70s and heading to New Zealand for the Armageddon Pulp Expo so we take the opportunity to ask him about his long screen career. Armageddon Expo Auckland is on from Friday 25 October to Monday 28 October at the ASB Showgrounds in Greenlane.
12:48 Artist Lana Lopesi
Auckland artist Lana Lopesi plans to encourage young Pacific people in New Zealand to ask their elders about their forgotten history from the 1950s to '80s, including the infamous Dawn Raids. She's calling her series of discussions, workshops, lectures, posters and publications Seize the Time.
Pictured: Ane Tonga, Nina Tonga, Lana Lopesi and Louisa Afoa.
The film Diana proves to be disappointingly tasteful, respectful and non-shocking.
Assemblage by Anne Taylor.
2:05 The Laugh Track
2:26 Te Kuri O Te Wao
Dogs, birds, weapons and women: The silhouetted figures that artist Penny Howard has created for her latest exhibition speak to her desire to use her history and her heritage to discuss colonisation and the cultural and literal landscape of this country. Central to this is her great-great-great-grandmother Te Kuri O Te Wao, the exhibition's namesake.
Te Kuri O Te Wao – You leave footprints in the soft earth of my heart, by Penny Howard.

John O'Connor has recently published his latest collection, Aspects of Reality (HeadworX)
