In the September issue of ArtReview

Brazil
The third of our annual focuses on the South American country, featuring:

Daniel Steegmann Mangrané
We profile the Rio de Janeiro-based artist (and the creator of our four fabulous covers), whose diverse body of work brings together radical anthropology, warped reweavings of the modernist grid and a fascination with the stick-insect family. 

American musician and artist Arto Lindsay discusses how he was drawn into the world of blocos afros, carnavalescos and Bahian carnival in general, and into a collaboration with Matthew Barney along the way.

Mail art pioneer Felipe Ehrenberg and São Paulo-based artist Daniel Lima create new artist projects.

Oliver Basciano takes a trip to the northeast of Brazil to see the work of artists Berna Reale, Armando Queiroz, Alexandre Sequeira, Thiago Martins de Melo and Éder Oliveira, and discovers that they do things differently there.

Claire Rigby discusses how the successes and failures, myths and realities of Brazilian urbanism have come to shape the discourse of so much of its contemporary art.

Also in Features
We profile Ukrainian artist Yevgenia Belorusets, whose photographs, despite a focus on difficult and complex situations, are devoid of voyeurism or “misery tourism.”

Philosopher Graham Harman posits what it is about speculative realism that artists are finding so irresistible at the moment.

Turkish-born artist Meriç Algün Ringborg presents A Work of Fiction that is composed entirely from word-usage sentences appearing in the Oxford English Dictionary.

In the autumn & winter issue of ArtReview Asia

Wenny Teo profiles cover artist Lee Bul, who finds a disturbing vision of the future in the failed utopias of the past.

Edward Sanderson and Elaine W. Ho present Who Goes, Where Are? [part 4], their experimental collaborative project addressing documentation as gesture in alternative art practices of contemporary China.

Artist Charwei Tsai and filmmaker and artist Tsering Tashi Gyalthang present the first part of their project I Asked the River Tonight, a love story between the Mekong River and the moon.

Yu Wei profiles Kao Chung-Li, the Taiwanese artist straddling the realms of experimental film and contemporary art.

Bring on the Biennials
With a biennial opening almost every week this autumn, ArtReview Asia tracked down the directors and chief curators of some of the bigger examples and asked them to explain what these events are all about: Anselm Franke on the Shanghai Biennale; Charles Esche on the São Paulo Bienal; Jessica Morgan on the Gwangju Biennale; and Nicolas Bourriaud on the Taipei Biennial. 

FutureGreats Asia 2014: We profile11 artists to look out for, selected by Karen Archey, Freya Chou, Brian Curtin, Louis Ho, Jeff Leung, Aimee Lin, Laura McLean-Ferris, Naeem Mohaiemen, Park Chan-kyong, Niru Ratnam and Sakarin Krue-On.
