They say art is the mark of a civilised society, but what do Australians really think about it? Each week, a cross-section of Australians will become art critics as they delve deeper into some of the most renowned works in the country. Across nine episodes, we share the amazing treasure trove of artifacts in Australian galleries. Our new critics see a wide range of colonial art, emerging Pacific Rim art, indigenous art and modern art. We look at sculpture and installations as well as paintings on a wall. We show that art can be fun, annoying, challenging, infuriating. No matter who we are, art always provokes a response. It challenges our beliefs, lifts our spirits, and reminds us who we are. Everyone's got a story. Everyone's got an opinion. Everyone's a Critic.
