Tonight | The Art Of… on ABC and ABC iview

The Art Of… on ABC – THE ART OF… is a refreshing new arts and culture show with an epic mission: to answer life’s big questions through art.  

Each episode we ask a burning question:  Why does sex make us uncomfortable? Is rage a blessing or a curse?  How can we learn to embrace our imperfections?  

Join the ever-curious Namila Benson as she speaks to artists from across the vast creative landscape here and abroad to find answers.  

Coming along for the ride are guest hosts including iconic Australian Drag Queen Courtney Act exploring The Art of Masculinity and food lover Matt Preston delving into The Art of Food. The series also features online art historian extraordinaire Mary McGillivray. 

THE ART OF… is a wild dive into the challenges of life, borrowing the wisdom, humour and bravery of the most intriguing artists.


Join our guest host, drag sensation, Courtney Act, as she travels around the country to investigate the world of masculinity. Courtney wants to know: What does masculinity mean today. Will art provide answers?

By the age of 15, Courtney decided that masculinity wasn’t for her. Now in her 40s, Courtney is finally curious to explore this world.

From shooting paintballs and swinging the high line of a cabaret tent, to watching home movies with Courtney’s old man; this episode explores masculinity through a spectacular array of artists, including Parkway Drive front man, Winston McCall, sculptor, Billy Bain, burlesque performer, Fez Faanana and world-famous classicist Mary Beard. Will Courtney discover a newfound love of the masculine world?
