Reading list, 6 August 2016

When museums shut down.

SFMOMA responds to Lee Rosenbaum's sniffy article about their audio guide not with indignation, but with data.

Teju Coles writes for the New York Times Magazine on The Superhero Photographs of the Black Lives Matter Movement, a rare example of a arts critic grappling with the depiction of world events as they happen.

Hyperallergic's new(ish) podcast is showing promise: start with the latest, on women artists in the Ab-Ex movement, because Linda Nochlin. (And also because those of us who are part of the apparatus that determines whose work gets shown and whose stories get remembered have nobody to blame for invisibility and erasure except ourselves.)

Le Guin might have had Roke, Atuan and Gont, but Martin O'Leary has built a naming language to generate fantastical place names.

SEGD (not sure who that is, but hey) have published a list of of the 20 most influential exhibition designs of the 21st century to date. What fascinates me here is that exhibition design (ie. scaffolding to support object display, narration, and visitor interactions) are not differentiated from artworks that are experiential.
