Two reviews

A review by David Eggleton of the recent exhibition The Glass Archive, Hocken Gallery (Dunedin), can found in Art New Zealand, Winter 2017 (no. 162). The project publication was also reviewed by John Hurrell for EyeContact and appears online here. Both provide interesting and informative commentary on this project.
