This extensive anthology looks back at the past decade of their activity, from 2009 to 2019, and is filled with ephemera, images of performances and shows, bulletins, and much more. With contributions by Yana Foqué, Krist Gruijthuijsen, Anthony Huberman, and Maxine Kopsa.

Grace Crowley Riet Wijnen

Published by Kunstverein, Amsterdam, 2019, 272 pages, 12 × 17 cm, English

Price: €20

Grace Crowley is a publication by Riet Wijnen, based on letters sent to the Australian artist and pioneer of modernist painting Grace Crowley (1890–1979) by friends, family and colleagues. Parts of those letters, which are now housed in the Art Gallery of New South Wales and the State Library of New South Wales archives in Sydney, were transcribed and categorized by Wijnen in subsections such as ‘Marital Status’, ‘Teaching’, ‘Hosting’, ‘Eurasia’, ‘X’, ‘Being A Woman’, ‘War’, ‘$’, and ‘Making Work’. The result is an alternative biography constructed solely through a living set of relations.
