  01 Editorial DEBORAH CLARK It’s good to be back in the Art Monthly clocktower. I had almost – but not quite – forgotten the pace of the magazine and its relentless deadlines, but it keeps us honest and on our toes. I am very grateful to Eve Sullivan, Guest Editor of the first four issues of the magazine this year, for stepping in and keeping the Art Monthly flag flying. She has done a terrific job (and it has been wonderful for me reading the issues quite distanced from the circumstances of their production).
