Transcript: How to develop your taste in art, with critic Ariella Budick

The US art critic Ariella Budick is one of my favourite explainers at the Financial Times. I often look up her art reviews after I’ve seen a show at a museum in New York, as I’m trying to form my own opinion on it. Ariella’s reviews do a few things. They place the artist in context. They consider whether the exhibit did them justice. They cover a huge variety of shows across time periods and the world, and they often make me laugh a lot. Recently, she wrote a scathing review of a video art exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art by the artist Joan Jonas, and in it she wrote that the show was like walking a puppy. You’re curious about every leaf, but in the end you just, quote, spend an eternity nosing the same unpromising patch of sidewalk. Ariella is with me to talk about the craft of being an art critic and how we can be more adventurous and trust our judgment when it comes to art. Ariella, hi. Welcome to the show.

Urban Aboriginal art takes centre stage at the 2024 Sydney Biennale

Search for the origins of contemporary Indigenous art in Australia and the answer is surprisingly specific: the Northern Territory town of Papunya, c1971, with a depiction of the Honey Ant Dreaming ancestral tale in a large-scale mural. This was the birth of “dot painting”, the reproduction on paper or canvas of traditional styles of sand and body ceremonial art, and it brought global fame to artists such as Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri and Kaapa Tjampitjinpa.

In the minds of many outside Australia, Aboriginal art, both old and new, is linked to remote areas of the country. Yet contemporary Indigenous art has always had an urban side, most notably in Queensland art schools in the 1980s, where students included Tracey Moffatt, who became the first Indigenous artist to represent Australia in a solo show at the Venice Biennale, and the brilliant Gordon Bennett, who skewered colonial history by appropriating large chunks of western art.

An intimate study of Winston Churchill that has been in private hands for seven decades has gone on show in the room at Blenheim Palace in which Britain’s most famous prime minister was born, before being auctioned in June.

It was the work of Graham Sutherland, one of the most highly regarded artists of his time. Sutherland was commissioned to paint Churchill by the Houses of Parliament to mark the wartime leader’s 80th birthday in November 1954.
