As an introduction to their rich archive, the Tate has provided this online resource featuring the art critic Barbara Reise, and her involvement in the art world of the 1960s and 1970s. Designed as a journey through the archives of Reise, this website features a timeline of events during her lifetime with hyperlinks to relevant items in the archive. Biographical material is also provided including her work as an art history lecturer and critic. The Reise Archive includes material on the `decade of revolution', artist critics and US/UK relationships. The section headed `Art Movements' considers the public and art world reactions to Minimalism and Conceptual art which dominated the 1960s and 1970s. Artists featured in this archive include Dan Flavin, Baranett Newman and Robert Morris.
