Sometimes the book was a prop; sometimes it was a symbol; other times, it was actually being read. These 14 works of art from eight nations span six centuries, and books are found in all of them. The art seems to tell a story: that books have been essential to cultures worldwide and across all ages. Maybe the portraits of the future will pose us with our e-readers in hand.
My (non-definitive) guide to Applying to Graduate School in Art History is finished! You can download it for free in PDF format here. If you find it useful, please pass it along to your friends & also let me know!
This is an absolutely BRILLIANT guide. Amy did an incredible job designing and writing it, and if you’re even slightly considering applying to grad school, this is a must read. A. Must. Read.
I did this piece for Random House’s Listening Library audio edition of The Time Machine! I think there will be posters and buttons of this available at Comic-Con!
I should grab the free version for my e-reader. I’ve meant to read this for a while.

"I want to emphasise the importance of approaching both our theoretical explorations and our movement activism in ways that enlarge and expand and complicate and deepen our theories and practices of freedom. Feminism involves so much more than gender equality and it involves so much more than gender. Feminism must involve consciousness of capitalism (I mean the feminism that I relate to, and there are multiple feminisms, right). So it has to involve a consciousness of capitalism and racism and colonialism and post-colonialities, and ability and more genders than we can even imagine and more sexualities than we ever thought we could name. Feminism has helped us not only to recognise a range of connections among discourses and institutions and identities and ideologies, that we often tend to consider separately. But it has also helped us to develop epistemological and organising strategies that take us beyond the categories ‘women’ and ‘gender’. And feminist methodologies impel us to explore connections that are not always apparent. And they drive us to inhabit contradictions and discover what is productive in these contradictions. Feminism insists on methods of thought and action that urge us to think things together that appear to be separate and to disaggregrate things that appear to naturally belong together."
