Before the announcement was made that she would be the next Emerging Curator for Here and Now in 2017, the great Chelsea Hopper stopped by The Take Away Special when she was in back in Perth for a very droll, insightful discussion. Topics on the table include her time working at a video store in Melbourne, her last exhibitions she curated at Moana, 9/11, living in Canberra, frequent flyer diet, and much, much more. Regular segments are attempted such as "PSH Level", "Ultimate Recommendation", and "No One Understands My Tastes", which for this round should be retitled "No One Understands Me!" For 'Secret Perth', Chelsea surprises with advocacy for how good milk is - just regular milk, not flavoured milk - in Western Australia. If you haven't come across a copy, please purchase the comic Chelsea and Tristan made together, Chelsea Stories here: https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/211655733/chelsea-stories.
