Issue 193: Out Now

Facebook / Twitter / Instagram

The March issue of frieze is out now, featuring monographs on Tacita Dean and Cui Jie as well as interviews with Arthur Jafa and Naeem Mohaiemen. Plus a "visual essay" by Simon Starling and columns and reviews from around the world.

Tacita Dean: The Actor and the Hummingbird
"The process of making Antigone was highly laboured, a real mindfuck and utterly magical." On the eve of her solo shows at London’s Royal Academy of Arts (May 19–August 12), National Gallery and National Portrait Gallery (both March 15–May 28), Ben Eastham explores Tacita Dean’s new work and the "magic of film."

Naeem Mohaiemen: Left Behind?
"The Left has been holding back the floodgates of gangster capital; now we need to overthrow the system." Sarinah Masukor interviews Naeem Mohaiemen, whose exhibition There Is No Last Man is on view at MoMA PS1, New York, until March 11.

Simon Starling: New Artist Commission
The artist Simon Starling photographs Giorgio Griffa’s studio in Turin, in an exclusive commission for frieze.

Also Featuring

Arthur Jafa talks about "black sites" and the politics of filmmaking with New York-based artist Jace Clayton; Ying Zhou looks at architecture, idealism and anachronism in artist Cui Jie’s depictions of urban China; and Erik Morse explores how representations of sleep reflect contemporary culture, from Marcel Duchamp and Andy Warhol to Sophie Calle and Véréna Paravel and Lucien Castaing-Taylor.

Columns and Reviews

Dan Fox unravels the idea of the "museum quality" exhibition; Pablo Larios look at the limits of "crossing borders" in art, asking if certain parameters are really all that bad; Audrea Lim examines how local artist-led protests against gentrification are reshaping Chinatowns across the US; Emily Segal discusses the women who have been written out of internet history, in Claire L. Evans’s new book, Broad Band; and Negar Azimi finds that Eileen Myles’s new memoir of her dog has much to say about being human.

Plus: 37 exhibition reviews from 15 countries, including reports on the Prospect.4 triennial in New Orleans and Laura Owens’s solo show at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.

Answering our questionnaire is Chiharu Shiota, whose exhibition Beyond Time is on view at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, West Bretton, from March 30 to September 2.
