Reading list, 7 July 2018

An excellent and topical piece by Adam Goodall for the Pantograph Punch, The Difficult History and Precarious Future of the PACE Programme.

And more bias ahoy - Francis McWhannell for Pantograph Punch on Simon Gennard's curatorial project Sleeping Arrangements, currently on show at The Dowse.

The latest issue of reliably excellent Gray Market Weekly is reliably excellent, and looks at - amongst other things - expansionist activities by the mega-galleries, such as Hauser & Wirth's three bars/restaurants. It also points to Richard Polsky's op-ed, Why the Passing of Interview Magazine and the Rise of Gagosian Quarterly Represents a New Era for the Art World.

Two wonderful profiles - Thomas Chatterton Williams on Adrian Piper for the New York Times and Steve Rose on Theaster Gates for the Guardian

Off topic, but too good not to share - Judith Newman's He’s Going Back to His Former Wife. Sort Of., published in the New York Times Modern Love section, is a beautifully written piece on the death and complicated burial wishes of an older husband.
