New Year, old resolutions (again): 2016

Best wishes for 2016!

Here I am at the end of my short summer break with yet another list of things that I should remember to come back to…

Having spent some time sifting through the weight of old and unread emails, journal alerts and odd papers, I’ve bookmarked the eclectic collection of (mostly 2015) publications that remained for future reference. As in my 2015 post, this list is NOT intended as a comprehensive public art bibliography, nor a critical favourites or “must read” list – nevertheless, several people mentioned last year that they found it useful, so I’m sharing here.

Happy reading (thinking, making…)!
