Meg Mitchell looks to our future. the artist and conservation. She has selected four well-known photographers to illustrate the theme ‘Disturbed Ground‘.
Finally. Sheena MacFarlane looks at the funnies today. cartoonists in the news. Seeing them out ofprint in her exhibition ‘Comic Features‘ provides the opportunity to compare the different branches of humour.

The Listwill be covering this event in more detail next issue.
