This month in Artforum:

Openings: Alex Kitnick on Cameron Rowland: 

“For Rowland, objects are inseparable from the systems they dwell in, just as systems are always inextricable from the stuff within them.”
–Alex Kitnick

Portfolio—Rosemarie Castoro: 

Artforum presents an exclusive portfolio of the pioneering New York artist’s work in dance, painting, sculpture, and text—which was at the center of Minimalism and Conceptualism but remains little known:

“There’s often a witty openness to Castoro’s systems, a seam in her works through which the world comes in, disturbing any perfect order.”
–Prudence Peiffer

David Bowie in retrospect:

“For David, self-invention was inherently futuristic, linked to the notion of a disposable self.”
–Tony Oursler

Ben Vickers on the art of Ian Cheng:

“Cheng’s work performs a preemptive strike on the cultural landscape of everything you and I think we know.”
–Ben Vickers

Jordan Kantor on Jackson Pollock’s late work:

”The late works, with their compartmentalized images regularly placed in strips, look as if they had come off a conveyor belt: iterations from the Pollock painting machine.”
–Jordan Kantor 

Richard Deming on Leap Before You Look: Black Mountain College 1933–1957:

“Everyone connected to Black Mountain College was forever marked by that encounter.”
–Richard Deming

Kenneth Frampton on the architecture of Álvaro Siza:

“Siza’s buildings were constructed with the participation of the users themselves, in a marked departure from the top-down, rigidly hierarchical processes that defined much of postwar urban design and architecture.”
–Kenneth Frampton

George E. Lewis on Karlheinz Stockhausen’s Klang:

“While Pierre Boulez eventually abandoned total serialism, Stockhausen saw the practice as a kind of ‘acoustic theology.’”
–George E. Lewis

And: Julian Rose on the new Met Breuer, Carlo McCormick on Martin Wong, Jeffrey Weiss on Revisions—Zen for Film, and Graham Bader on Benjamin H. D. Buchloh’s Formalism and Historicity 

Plus: Jackie Neudorf on Porches, Douglas Wolk on Adrian Tomine’s Killing and Dying, Jonathan Rosenbaum on Robert J. Flaherty’s Moana with Sound, Zehra Jumabhoy on Silent Explosion: Ivor Davies and Destruction in Art, and artist Magali Reus shares her Top Ten
