David Marr

A celebrity talk in association with the exhibition Monet and the Impressionists. Australia has always loved a good art scandal and Australians joined in attacking Impressionism as embodying the moral decay of the times. Journalist and author David Marr, who has written about the police seizure of photographs by Australian artist Bill Henson in 2008, discusses taste, public safety and moral panics about art.
