In the meantime, the Eye blog is full of new articles by international contributors such as Professor Steven McCarthy’s ‘Art behind bars’ and Marika Preziuso’s ‘Human rights by any other name’ as well as my 2015 interview with Milan designer Giancarlo Iliprandi who sadly died in September.

Also on the Eye website is the first of a new series of monthly Photo Critiques by Rick Poynor. This month’s looks at photographs on display in ‘Feminist Avant-Garde of the 1970s’ that challenge norms of female sexuality, beauty and domesticity. The exhibition continues at The Photographers’ Gallery until 15 January 2017.
