Hannah Gadsby's Nakedy Nudes
“The Nude” is one of the most enduring subjects in western art. In this two part Arts-doc series, comedian Hannah Gadsby speaks art heavyweights such as Ben Quilty, Bill Henson and Julie Rrap, to try to get to the bottom of our ongoing fascination with the nakedy nude.
The Birth of the Ideal
Hannah’s tour starts in Ancient Greece, where she discovers the glorification of masculine strength all started back in the toga era. Hannah talks to contemporary artists whose work speaks to that art history, and sometimes flat-out challenges it.
