July–August 2013, no. 353

Welcome to our annual Art issue! Noted photography scholar Helen Ennis – in her ABR George Hicks Foundation Fellowship – writes about Olive Cotton’s second marriage and slow re-emergence as a photographer. Mark Dober and Mary Eagle review the big new NGV Monet and NGA Turner exhibitions. Other highlights include Tim Rowse’s review of Marcia Langton’s 2012 Boyer Lectures and Morag Fraser’s reading of Joyce Carol Oates’s new novel. In Advances we question the Melbourne Writers’ Festival’s strong emphasis on the London Review of Books in its new program. Our Open Page guest this month is the Pascall Prize winner, Kerryn Goldsworthy.
