Table of Contents

  2. The Brief

    The first Garage Triennial; Armory Show and attendant NYC art fairs; Center for Women’s History inaugurated at the New-York Historical Society; Nina Katchadourian’s retrospective in Austin; Tate St. Ives reopens; Art Basel Hong Kong.

  3. First Look

    Jamie Crewe

    Twenty-something Glasgow–based multimedia artist Jamie Crewe casts a transfeminist eye on art, literature, and history.

  4. Atlas Miami: Place Markers

    While Ugo Rondinone's flourescent multicolored stone stack reinforces Miami's bright-skyscraper ethos, works by Beverly Buchanan, Onajide Shabaka, and César Trasobares more thoughtfully represent the city's diverse social history.

  5. Museums

    The Corona Rising

    Taking their place in the new National Museum of African American History and Culture among historical artifacts and key emblems of black music and theater, some eighty works of visual art manifest ties to a troubled history.

  6. Muse

    Snowballs and Flags

    New York artist Derrick Adams recalls the galvanizing effect that David Hammons’s works and actions had on him while he was a student at Pratt Institute in the mid-’90s.

  7. Backstory

    Character Study

    A photo of neighborhood children with one of his Hydrocal sculptures prompts Aldo Tambellini to reminisce about the East Village of the early 1960s and the Umbra poets who were then his collaborators and friends.

  8. Books

    Copy That

    Jacob Stewart-Halevy on Kate Eichhorn’s Adjusted Margin: Xerography, Art, and Activism in the Late Twentieth Century; plus related titles in brief.

  9. Ritual Work

    Treating dance as a species of witchcraft, LA choreographer Nina McNeely brings New Age symbols, culturally diverse music, and staccato movement to her live performances and big-name music videos. 

  10. Urban Pastorals

    Sited on Staten Island, Governors Island, and the Brooklyn waterfront, three enormous new parks—reflecting the distinct versions of three top international landscape design firms—provide New York with a host of additional "green" amenities.

  11. More Of Less

    Working with molecular structures, LA-based artist-entrepreneur Sean Raspet makes artworks in the form of food substitutes and artificial flavorings, thereby challenging conventional cuisine and its socioeconomic system.   

  12. Radical Destabilization

    The disorienting Op art paintings and installations of Julio Le Parc—born in Argentina but residing in France since 1958—bespeak his long-standing impatience with rigid aesthetic and political norms.

  13. In the Studio: Augustas Serapinas

    In his "studio," a contemplative space deep in a drainpipe by the Vilnia River, young Lithuanian artist Augustas Serapinas describes his itinerant, ad hoc practice.

Color is a Boundary

Bruises, skin tones, and the colors of the sky are among the surprising motifs of Byron Kim’s socially charged monochromes.
