Art At the End of the World
The New Classical FM’s Mark Wigmore has repackaged, reimagined and remixed conversations he has had on-air and during the first season of the “Art at the End of the World” podcast for this special set of encore presentations on the Zoomer Podcast Network!
Mark speaks to artist, musician, media personality, writer and cultural agitator Sook-Yin Lee. She offers ideas about the growing pains of an arts community in flux and the goals behind her deep dive into artistic censorship in “UnSafe”; her Canadian Stage produced hybrid documentary/theatre piece that spurred on big conversations in 2019.
Also, Sook-Yin reflects on complicated family life and the move from her suburban immigrant upbringing to her ramshackle teenage years on the streets of Vancouver.
Plus, she recounts her time hosting DNTO on the CBC, and her breakthrough as a VJ on MuchMusic including stories about The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Radiohead, Moses Znaimer & Denise Donlan.
All that, and big ideas on sex, nudity, diversity, appropriation, censorship & even reverse colonialism.
