This Sunday 12-4pm at your arts and culture hangout - on air and on the web - we open with a chat with the Film Commission's Annabel Sheehan about the tension between diversity and representation, and explore the way the gallery model is changing with two new gallery directors: Daniel Du Bern of Sumer in Tauranga and Kelly O'Shea of Dirt. After 1pm At The Movies, and then two panels: the diverse world of comics today with three of our best comic artists Sarah Laing, Toby Morris and Jem Yoshioka; and curator Zara Stanhope and artist Anne Noble on one of the biggest art events in Australasia the Asia Pacific Triennial - and the work Anne has done with scientists to install a home for bees inside the gallery for five months. After 2pm our guests on the Laugh Track are from the upcoming Work do at Auckland’s Basement, Brynley Stent and Jodie Rimmer, we find out why top UK Literary Agent Carolyn Dawney is such a sucker for NZ authors like Eleanor Catton and Charlotte Grimshaw and we talk to Jenny Bornholdt about a wonderful anthology of NZ short poems. At the end of that hour Stroma's Michael Norris explains what's replacing rhythm and melody in new contemporary music.
