  7. Critical Eye: Personal Boundaries

    The traveling exhibition “Art AIDS America,” opening this summer at the Bronx Museum, finds renewed relevance in the culture wars of the 1980s and ’90s, especially the dual political-aesthetic strategies of the era’s most socially committed artists.

  11. Trust Lust

    Art collector and self-taught painter William N. Copley translated his love of Surrealism into bright, cartoonish canvases devoted to everyday objects and scenes of good-natured raunch.

  12. Concrete Future

    The Met Breuer, housed in the revamped concrete building that Marcel Breuer designed for the Whitney Museum, launched with a survey show whose “unfinished” theme chimes with the rough materiality of the modernist architectural landmark.

  13. Writing and Non-Writing

    Singapore-based Heman Chong addresses timeless epistemological questions—what do we know, and how do we know it?—through subtly conceptual, often semi-collaborative, “documentary” works.

    In the final years of a seven-decade career, Ellsworth Kelly defied the notion of a “late” style, instead drawing imaginatively on his long-standing motifs to create diverse new works in a full range of mediums.

  15. In the Studio: Christian Jankowski

    Chief curator of this summer’s Manifesta 11, German artist Christian Jankowski speaks candidly about his artist-meets-nonartist plan for the global event, as well as his own irreverent artworks—videos that parody today’s mass media formats and art world mores.

  16. Artworld

    People, Awards, Obituaries

Geometry of the Beach

Sharply linear, formally severe, yet somehow lyrical, the tool-assisted drawings of Indian modernist Nasreen Mohamedi are featured in the new Met Breur's first monographic survey.
