.. to meet up with my painter friend from NEIS

We discussed a number of things, including poverty, art and art censorship including previous attempts at art censorship involving the oxley9 gallery (1982 Fred Nile convinced the vice-squad to seize "Stupid as a Painter" by artist Juan Davila as it had a homo-erotic theme. From what I understand the Premier of New South Wales was involved in having it returned to the gallery.)

I also read that in 1984 the Festival of Light may have been involved in having the police seize 3 paintings by Juan Davila from the Lake MacQuarie Gallery
