Summary Henry Wagons looks at impersonators, Fenella Kernebone visits the Portrait Exchange project featuring the work of artists with disabilities, Myfanwy Warhurst features in 'Guilty Pleasures' and the Ben Winkleman Trio performs.This week on Art Nation Henry Wagons looks at the art of impersonation and asks why do musicians in particular pretend to be someone they're not? And why do the fans pay good money to bear witness to this fakery? Wagons unearths a series of wannabees including Tina Turner, Charlie Chaplin, Jim Morrison and Elvis. He even discovers someone in his own image; a Henry Wagons lookalike. Meanwhile, Art Nation's presenter Fenella Kernebone is off to look at a unique art exchange program involving artists with intellectual disabilities who have been paired with artists without disabilities. The Portrait Exchange by the Melbourne-based Arts Project will culminate in an exhibition of portraits, each artist taking turns to be both sitter and portrait painter. "Every portrait tells us a story of a relationship and it is these stories that are the focus of this project," says curator Lindy Judge.This week in Guilty Pleasures, where well-known faces admit to their 'secret shame', it's the turn of Spicks And Speck's Myfanwy Warhurst who fesses up to her love of Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers. And to close the show, the Ben Winkleman Trio continues to explore new possibilities for the jazz piano trio
