Artforum, April 2014

Hot stuff in this April issue of Artforum. Perhaps hottest of all? Christine Mehring on Sigmar Polke’s storied 1976 Düsseldorf retrospective, which was organized by none other than Benjamin H.D. Buchloh. (Polke made a rather unexpected intervention in the show.) Also cool: a Top 10 from Pauline Oliveros, J. Hoberman on the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Michael Snow show and quite a bit more.

Artforum, March 2014

Seriously solid stuff in this issue of Artforum: Daniel Birnbaum, on Arthur Danto, Griel Marcus on Inside Llewyn Davis and Alison M. Gingeras on Friedrich Kunath. Plus a conversation between George Lewis and the late, great Terry Adkins. Lots to enjoy. But it’s time now to discuss the advertisements. (Actually it was time for that a long Read More

Artforum

February is the shortest month of the year, which means that you have to make your way through Artforum even more quickly than other months. (Except when it’s summer, of course.) Best start cracking now! You’ll want to look out for Jeffrey Weiss on Robert Morris, Manthia Diawara on Kader Attia and Hal Foster on Isa Genzken. Lots of good stuff. Read More

Artforum

It’s January, folks, and we’ve got a new Artforum issue. We’re a little bit late on it this month, I know, but it’s been hard to get back in the swing of things. Also, there’s so much to read in the magazine that it’s taken a while to get to the ads. Dana Schutz, Cary Loren and Philip Levine on the Detroit Institute? Benjamin H. D. Buchloh on Allan Sekula? J. Hoberman on Jean-Luc Godard? Yes, please! But now, the advertisements. There are some fine ones. Read More

Artforum, November 2013

And we’re back. In the front of the book this month, Artforum has Michael Heizer and Jeffrey Weiss on Walter De Maria and Laurie Simmons on Sarah Charlesworth, Bob Nickas on its September 1969 issue and Charlotte Birnbaum on Mary Ann Caws’s Modern Art Cookbook. In the features section we get heavyweights sounding off on Thomas Hirschhorn’s Gramsci Monument and the work of the Italian architect Carlo Scarpa, plus the second part of Thierry de Duve’s serial treatise. In short, lots of strong, interest stuff.

Artforum

After a painfully long summer break, Artforum has returned, complete with a huge section on goings-on in Venice with pieces by Claire Bishop, Benjamin H. D. Buchloh, Pamela M. Lee, Okwui Enwezor and more. Also here: Chris Kraus on Channa Horwitz, Michael Hardt on Jonathan Crary’s 24/7, Alison M. Gingeras on Jeff Koons and the magazine’s much-loved fall previews. But we are here for the ads, and it is a fine month for that: the book is full of them. Read More

'Artforum,' Summer 2013

Artforum has delivered a strong, strong summer issue. Michael Sanchez contributes an exciting essay on the state of contemporary art and digital transmission; Antonio Blair, Marie Karlberg and Stewart Uoo discuss their fruitful collaborations (and Mr. Uoo’s two-person show at the Whitney with Jana Euler); and Isabelle Graw reviews the Kippenberger show at Berlin’s Hamburger Bahnhof. Plus, Sadie Benning delivers the Top 10. And there are even more pleasures—too many to list here. Read More
