Summer in Artforum: Gary Indiana Introduces

“What went past me in early conversations with Jamie was the fact that he comes from the Valley, and the backyard wrestling documentation is one of several ongoing projects that record life in a place that has, for him, a heavily negative charge.”

Thomas Ruff provides the summer cover. Inside, the Düsseldorf-based photographer discusses “l.m.v.d.r.,” his uncanny images of the architecture of Mies van der Rohe that anchor MoMA’s summer tribute to the seminal builder of the previous century. Elsewhere Joan Ockman and Anthony Vidler offer twin takes on the designs of Frank Gehry, the architect the Guggenheim celebrates as the leading light of the next.

Plus: Balthus Lives? Artists John Currin, Lisa Yuskavage, David Salle, and Lucian Freud consider the life and legacy of the iconoclastic Count de Rola, who died this winter at the age of 92.
