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.


In this episode, Namila Benson confronts an ever-taboo subject; Sex. Why does sex make us uncomfortable?

Travelling from strip clubs to burlesque bars, she investigates whether the answer is in art.

Featuring actress and intimacy coordinator, Michaela Banas, the acclaimed visual artist, Paul Yore, burlesque sensation, Kitty Obsidian, and ABC Classic’s Vanessa Hughes, who reveals just how unexpectedly filthy classical music can be – it’s a journey like no other.

Will Namila find out why sex makes us uncomfortable?
