Arts correspondent Julia Waite joins Kathryn to talk about how Covid-19 has been an opportunity for galleries have 'leaned in' to their own art collections, and are sharing more of the art here in New Zealand.

She focuses on two exhibitions which have already opened to the public: Split Level View Finder: Theo Schoon and New Zealand Art on at Te Uru and A Land of Granite: McCahon and Otago on at Dunedin Public Art Gallery.

Julia will also talk about a video from the Art Gallery of New South Wales which shows sketchbooks from prominent Australian artists, and how museums and galleries have responded to the Black Lives Matter movement, including the Whitney Museum with this open letter and even at Te Papa, with this photograph by New Zealand artist Ans Westra.
