Letter in Art Monthly 288 (July - August 2005), p. 17, titled “Black to Black and White“. The letter, written by Pablo Lafuente took issue with a letter that had been published in the previous issue of Art Montly. Lafuente’s letter opened as follows: “In a letter published last month (AM 287), Alana Jelinek questioned the editor’s choice of Sally O’Reilly as a reviewer of Africa Remix at Hayward Gallery, as well as her approach to the exhbition, and her supposed inability to deal with the cultural and geographical issues raised by the selection of artists, as if, in Jelinek’s words, she was ‘overwhelmed by the foreign-ness of the project’.”

The letter also references a review of Africa Remix (quoted by O’Reilly) written by Jonathan Jones for the Guardian newspaper.
