Repair or Revolt?: Projects on Politics by Charles Gaines, Ed Ruscha, Jim Shaw, and Sue Williams

“When the legitimacy of nearly every single one of our political institutions is in doubt, I find myself grateful for one that, despite the best efforts of antidemocratic forces to rob the poor and people of color of franchise, still offers the hope of peaceful revolution.”
—David Velasco 

Through the Past, Darkly: Ewa Lajer-Burcharth on the art of Eugène Delacroix

“What lesson, if any, can Delacroix’s deeply troubling paintings offer to artists of today, many of whom adopt a deliberately anachronistic stance or pursue past-conscious figurative modes of representation?”
—Ewa Lajer-Burcharth

The Price of Intimacy: Diedrich Diederichsen on Hubert Fichte

“Fichte maintained that the nontraditional, non-family-generating organization of sexual contact among gay men presents a utopian model for all contact between strangers everywhere in the world.”
—Diedrich Diederichsen

Gravity and Grace: Rachel Churner on the art of Maren Hassinger

“We are equal in this predicament. We are all passing through. From this untenable place, I make things.” 
—Maren Hassinger
