CURA. 22 is out now, ready to keep your company along the hot summer 2016!

The cover of CURA. 22 is conceived and designed by the amazing young artist Sol Calero. We love her “vibrant and animated” works, and the critical and political issues addressed in her practice. In the magazine itself, Adam Carr introduces the artist’s work.

Our contributor-editor Lorenzo Benedetti dedicates his “portraits in the exhibition space” to the figure of Johannes Cladders, who, through his relentless curatorial activities, literally redefined the museum’s role as an institution. In the frame of the “exhibition literature” series, art critic Jean-Max Colard focuses on the work of Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster and her investigation into the visual and spatial dimensions of literature. 

Ben Vickers talks with James Bridle about the main themes of his research—networks, satellites, clouds, geo-engineering—while Gigiotto Del Vecchio and Alex Israel‘s friendly conversation is focused, among other issues, on the close relationship between the artist’s work and the visual landscape of Los Angeles and California.  

Chris Sharp‘s text shows us the various sensorial motifs of Anicka Yi‘s work, where scent is often the vehicle to investigate the allegorical potential of reality. While Rose Bouthillier presents a sort of travel journal into the performative projectsof Kevin Beasley, whose work is based on the dialogue between sounds and objects.  

Amy Yao‘s artist’s project creates an enigmatic, imaginative suspension: her sequence of empty urban landscapes is animated by sudden apparitions of objects, texts and unexpected visual relations.
The curatorial duo formed by Pierre-Alexandre Mateos and Charles Teyssou talks with Philipp Timischl about his videos, sculptures, installations and photographic work and the relation he has with images and imaginary, through the different steps of his career.

João Mourão and Luís Silva write about their visit to Rodrigo Hernández‘ solo exhibition Every forest madly in love with the moon has a highway crossing it from one side to the other. The artist explains the various aspects of this articulated project, starting from the meaning of its title and examining the formal and narrative structure of the whole show.

Philipp Ekardt and the members of ÅYR address their attention to the mechanisms of the artistic collective’s work, focusing on the multiform relationship with contemporary art, architecture, and digital technologies. 

Answering to Martha Kirszenbaum‘s questions, Caroline Mesquita describes her artistic experiences in Europe and Los Angeles, as well as the main themes of her sculptural research. 

In the final HOT!section four critics and curators present the work of four emerging artists: Debora Delmar Corp. (by Judith Vrancken); Juliana Huxtable (by Whitney Mallett); Sophie Jung (by Frances Loeffler); Nancy Lupo (by Sarah Lehrer-Graiwer). 

Don’t miss your new copy of CURA. that will be launched at Art Basel and Liste in Basel (June 13 through 19) and will be on sale through the end of September in the best international bookshops in Italy and abroad! 

We come back in October! Stay tuned!
