Join emerging curators Audrey Merton and Sen Vanderzalm for a live episode of Art Smitten, SYN Media’s flagship radio show focusing on arts and culture amidst the Melbourne Art Book Fair in the NGV Great Hall.  

For this session, Audrey and Sen turn their attention to arts and publishing, diving into the history of art manifestos and the impact of DIY publishing as acts of resistance. The pair will also host an interview with the people behind Betweenia Project 夾洲計劃, who bring not just art books but also experiences of mutual aid and situated practices from China to Australia.
