This month in Artforum:

Carceral Aesthetics: Nicole R. Fleetwood in conversation with Rachel Kushner

“Although prison art is often called outsider art, in fact the opposite is true: This art is all about institutional relations.”
—Nicole R. Fleetwood

Where We’re At: Bulletins from around the globe

“We will need to build on top of these ruins. Not to reconstruct what didn’t work, but to create a new reality.”
—Manuel Borja-Villel

Artist Project: David Velasco introduces Stanley Whitney

“No to prison life, these images say. But more than that, they suggest that until our jails and prisons and detention centers are shut down, until we stop enlisting the punitive to preserve our romance with safety, there is no such thing as non-prison life.”
—David Velasco

Blasted Allegories: Fabrice Stroun on the art of Steven Parrino

“To construct an entire oeuvre on the proposition that ‘painting is dead’ seems barely comprehensible today, but Parrino did just that, finding more and more room to expand the scope of his entropic vision.”
—Fabrice Stroun

And: Rosalyn Deutsche on Ode to the Sea: Art from Guantánamo Bay; Nicole R. Fleetwood introduces the art of Mark Loughney, James Hough, Jared Owens, and Tameca Cole; Bruce Hainley on the art of Marie Laurencin; Catherine Besteman on militarizing the pandemic; Alan Gilbert on the Rojava Film Commune; Amy Taubin on Michael Almereyda’s Tesla; Giampaolo Bianconi on Clara Ianni; Kevin Chua on Latiff Mohidin: Pago Pago (1960–1969); and 40 exhibition reviews from around the globe.

Plus: Julia Bryan-Wilson on Lotty Rosenfeld; Jon Raymond on Yale Union and the Center for Native Arts and Cultures; and Katherine McKittrick shares her Top Ten
