Liz Gunn talks with Sydney-based Kiwi Nicole Timoko on setting up a new art gallery with a difference for New Zealanders.

Nicole wants to support talented Kiwis and their art,  through her disruptor Sydney art gallery and e-commerce platform. This is not a ‘vanilla’ space for art!

Contemporary On Crown is an art gallery with a difference - new lighting, DJ'd events and Gallery openings, and avenues into China where art, properly curated, is in high demand.

Nicole talks about her whakapapa, her all-important Maori / Kiwi lineage - and how it has shaped her high energy drive to help others to succeed .

Then two ex-pat artists, also based in Sydney - Timothy Laffey and Rex Turnbull - follow up with a discussion about their art and perspectives.
