News’ The Australian has published its inaugural edition of The List: Arts and Culture as a gloss large format magazine and on theaustralian.com.au.
The Arts and Culture List reveals the top 100 identities shaping Australia’s cultural future, from painters to philanthropists, musicians to cultural leaders and dancers to authors.
Edited by The Weekend Australian Review editor Tim Douglas, The List: Arts and Culture also draws on the knowledge and expertise of The Australian’s specialist journalists including literary editor Caroline Overington, arts correspondent Matthew Westwood, deputy editor of The Weekend Australian Review Bridget Cormack, and national music writer Andrew McMillen.
“Rarely has there been such an urgent need for a strong, healthy and vibrant arts and cultural scene than in Australia right now,” said Douglas.
“While the sector – which adds almost $15 billion to the national economy annually and employs almost 200,000 people – is bouncing back, the arts are hurting.”
“As we emerge from the global pandemic and a slew of devastating natural disasters, Australians look to our cultural leaders for solace, enlightenment and respite. Who are the game changers challenging and altering the landscape in Australia in 2022?”
“Today, we present our list of the top 100 shaping our nation’s cultural future and making a profound difference as they do.”
“The people taking publishing, visual arts, music, dance, film, TV to the world. The digital artists breaking new ground in the non-fungible token market, the philanthropists changing the face of our cities with donations, and the cultural leaders and administrators willing to take a chance on a bold idea, on a new work, on a new artist, a new venture.”
“The List: Arts and Culture reveals the public figures pulling the sector out of the Covid quicksand and sending it into the stratosphere.”
The issue also includes a host of features, profiles and deep-dive reportage on the state of the arts, plus cameos from artist Ben Quilty and singer-songwriter Kate Miller-Heidke.
The cover artwork was made by Raoul Marks, a dual Emmy-winning graphic designer, who features on the List. Marks has made a name for himself as one of Australia’s leading – and one of the world’s most collectable – NFT artists. His artwork, My Father had a Garden, was created exclusively for this edition and is for sale on NFT platform SuperRare, the buyer will also receive The List cover as a separately minted NFT.
The List is supported by key advertisers including Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Rolex, Viking River Cruises, National Gallery of Victoria, Visit Victoria, ACMI and National Museum of Australia.
