Curatorial Activism, Maura Reilly

Curatorial Activism, Towards an Ethics of Curating,  Maura Reilly, Thames & Hudson 2018. 

'Curatorial Activism is a manifesto for change in the art world.'

For so long the art canon has presented a very narrow history. It has been Western, it has been white and it has been male. Reilly is interested in how we can get people in the art world to think about gender, race and sexuality to ensure certain constituencies are no longer excluded from the narrative. Her book maps exhibitions that address issues of feminism, sexism, white privledge, western-centrism, hetero-centrism and homophobia.
