Milk Bar interview with Callum Preston
It was once a staple of every corner block; nowadays, Australians rarely ever see one, let alone set foot in one.
Callum Preston is an artist who laments the loss of the traditional Milk Bar, a small business where anything and everything could be purchased for a handful of change. He has recreated the signs and brands of old in a life-size art installation that recently toured regional Victoria.
In this segment from Art Smitten‘s very first season of 2019, Callum speaks with co-hosts Aurora Wang and Tom Denham about Milk Bar, which was displaying in Swan Hill at the time.
Segment originally aired Wednesday, April 10th. Produced by Arnie Duracak; edited by Tom Parry.
