Reading list, 23 April 2016

An interview with new Tate Modern director Frances Morris in the Guardian.

Following the way Lita Barrie's name was constantly raised at our Four Waves of Feminism event, it's quite fascinating to read her recent review of Hauser Wirth & Schimmel's opening exhibition Revolution in the Making: Abstract Sculpture by Women, 1947-2016 and think about how the American and European artists' names could be replaced by New Zealanders (Pauline Rhodes, Jacqueline Fraser, Christine Hellyar, Maureen Lander, Vivien Lynn, Mary Louise Browne, Kate Newby, Fiona Connor ...)

Immi Paterson-Harkness interviews Phil Dadson for The Pantograph Punch.

Via Putting Women on the Map: Women’s Museums and Gendering the Public Space, a link to Nancy Fraser's 1990 article Rethinking the Public Sphere: A Contribution to the Critique of Actually Existing Democracy, which I plan to read over this long weekend.
