The Picture of Little C.N. in a Prospect of Horrors: Bruce Hainley on the art of Cady Noland
“What does it mean to make an issue of connection—of what kind of connection, especially when the biographical, art-historical, and political are so knotted—a question of heredity?
—Bruce Hainley

Desktop Picture Plane: Jan Tumlir on Matthew Brannon’s “Concerning Vietnam”
“Intimated rather than declared is the sense, in the end irrefutable, that there is very little in our civilian world that was not developed through stages of research during wartime.”
—Jan Tumlir

Today in History: Kaelen Wilson-Goldie on the art of Banu Cennetoğlu
“What began as a subtle critique of how history is written has become a kind of elegy for editorial judgment and the world of hierarchically ordered facts."
—Kaelen Wilson-Goldie

Project: David Velasco introduces Martine Gutierrez
“Gutierrez shoots a splendid arrow straight into the whole fabulous history of magazines, lodging in their codes of colonization and fantasy, articulating the wound and its dressing.”
—David Velasco

And: Jordan Kantor on Vija Celmins; Mira Dayal on Marianna Simnett’s Blood In My Milk; Rachel Churner and Stuart Liebman on Annette Michelson; Fredric R. Jameson on Robert Venturi; and Colby Chamberlain on Walls Turned Sideways.

Plus: Ariel Goldberg on Donna Gottschalk, Sasha Frere-Jones on Éliane Radigue, Daniel Marcus on Picasso: Blue and Rose, Barry Schwabsky on René Daniëls, Elizabeth Mangini on Mario Merz, and Tod Lippy shares his Top Ten.
