On the radio

Belated, but - my whole segment last week was devoted to the new collection of Linda Nochlin essays, Women Artists: The Linda Nochlin Reader, edited by Maura Reilly (NYT review here, text of the "seminal" 1971 essay 'Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?' here).

Combined with currently reading Nicholas Mirzoeff's How to See the World (Guardian article by the author here), it's really brought home to me the fact that the visual and social world we (or at least I) has transformed in the past 50 years. Hardly a mindblowing insight, but a little explosive when it's happening inside your head.
