Making Art Global

A review of two books published by Afterall magazine: Making Art Global (Part 1): The Third Havana Biennial 1989, and Making Art Global (Part 2): Magiciens de la Terre, 1989. My thoughts on them, and exhibition history in general, can be found in the March 2014 issue of Artforum.

New book - Radical Museology!

Koenig Books just mailed me copies of my new book, Radical Museology, or, What's Contemporary in Museums of Contemporary Art? It's a slim tome, with drawings by one of my favourite artists, Dan Perjovschi. It's available already in Europe, but sadly it won't arrive in the US for another 3-4 months.

A review of the most enigmatic pavilion in Venice, in the September issue of Artforum. Shame they didn't include a better picture of Maria Hassabi, so I'm putting one of mine here.
