Reading list, 28 September 2019

The art of pricing - a new British report on ticketing in cultural organisations

Masha Gessen for the New Yorker: Poland's ruling party puts an extraordinary museum of Polish-Jewish history into limbo

A bit middle-of-the-road, but the attention Nicholas Thomas calls to valuing the relationships that museums foster is important: What are museums really for? (responding to the ICOM definition debate)

I was so surprised by how much I loved the Wallace Collection when I first visited London; reading between the lines here I feel like the new director came in and was like 'So, this no lending thing? Like, do we really think that's what she meant in her will? Really really? Really? But like - do you think we could maybe change it? We could? Yeah? Yeah, good. Good good'. 'Untapped treasure': Wallace Collection to start lending artworks

A Bronx Event Organized by New Museum Shut Down After Protest by Local Activists: a day-long event focused on climate change was shut down by protests from local groups opposing the New Museum acting in the Bronx.

Forest in a Soccer Stadium Outrages Austria’s Far Right - an art project protested for other reasons than you might at first think.

I loved Lonnie G. Bunch III's series of tweets (and series of tweets, Twitter's still a bit shit for aggregating ain't it?) recalling the opening day of the NMAAHC.*

Two deep dives by Erin Potts on current evaluation and measurement techniques for cultural strategy - an annotated reading list, and an analysis of current themes.

*Is that how you usea possessive apostrophe on the name of a person who's a III?
