A new exhibition of Bill Henson’s work is opening this Wednesday in Melbourne CBD.

Here are some news articles from the Fairfax media (I would not even bother looking in any Murdoch media outlets for fear of polluting my brain with their bullshit).
Interestingly though there is quite a difference in attitude in the articles in the SMH and the Age even though they are both Fairfax. The SMH is much more conservative and panders more to the scaremongering from people who seem unable to distinguish nudity from erotica. The Age basically just says this is what’s on and Melbournians are not fussed about it.
The Age: Video report from his speech at Federetion Square last year.
The Age poll on whether people find Bill Henson’s art offensive:
Lo and behold, it turns out The SMH article is identical to the article in the Herald Sun (going back on my word not to look, I know) which appears to be from the AAP (Australian Associated Press, founded by Murdoch). Interestingly The SMH reference AAP while the Herald Sun does not.
Also interesting that Bill Henson does not appear to have his own website. Perhaps I can offer to build him one ;)
