Sally Hughes is Principal Lecturer in Publishing, OICPS, Oxford Brookes University. Her research examines the production and reception of museum books and the contribution of these cultural entities to the role of the museum in shaping national identities. She completed her PhD on museums publishing (University of Leicester, 2011). During this partnership programme, she is developing her research on museum publishing in South Africa, carried out in Pretoria and Cape Town from 2012-13. During her first visit under this programme, Sally addressed the use by commercial contemporary art galleries in South Africa of printed materials, mainly exhibition catalogues, to represent artists and their production in the art markets of the global north. This work will be published a special edition of Critical Arts. Additional data from her research under this programme will inform case studies in her forthcoming book (Ashgate, 2016) on museum and art gallery publishing.
