In this issue of Artforum:

Critical Care: Colby Chamberlain on the art of Park McArthur

“The avant-garde and disability studies share a common objective: dispelling the myth of autonomy.”
—Colby Chamberlain

Pandemic Flowers: Benjamin H. D. Buchloh on the art of Luciano Perna

“Stone-faced subjects in disguise, these blooms reflect the actual violence necessary to forge a living subject’s involuntary identification with isolation and precarity.”
—Benjamin H. D. Buchloh

On the Ground: Beirut

“What, after all, is the point of restoring a museum or an art center when what people really need is an end to the political order?”
—Kaelen Wilson-Goldie

For this election issue, Artforum asked nine artists—Judith Bernstein, Jennifer Bolande, Sue Coe (with introduction by Lauren O’Neill-Butler), Renée Green, Tomashi Jackson (with introduction by Amarie Gipson), Tala Madani, Kenny Scharf, Taryn Simon, and Adam Pendleton (whose work is on the cover)—to contribute projects reflecting on a moment that requires us to think the unthinkable.

“Galvanized by the heartbreak of generational trauma and decades of prolonged crisis, Jackson sees her work as a mode of healing, a means to salvage the ruptured records of the past in order to better understand our present.”
—Amarie Gipson

And: Laura McLean-Ferris on Ken Okiishi’s Vital Behaviors, 2019; Amy Taubin on Garrett Bradley’s Time, 2020, and America, 2019; Du Keke on the Yokohama Triennale 2020; and more than 35 exhibition reviews from around the globe.

Plus: Erika Balsom on Tsai Ming-liang’s Days, Emmanuel Iduma on the Kamoinge Workshop, Christina Catherine Martinez on “Sisi in Private,” Alexandro Segade’s Fall of the Death Cult, Michael Lobel on art and the United States Postal Service, Paige K. Bradley on QAnon, Lauren O’Neill-Butler on the Feminist Art Coalition, and Akeem Smith shares his Top Ten
