Close-up: Stages of Grief: David Rimanelli on Jack Pierson’s Silver Jackie, 1991
Silver Jackie is more than content to leave the audience members waiting.”
—David Rimanelli

The Come Down; Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying: Sam McKinniss on the art of Catharine Czudej, Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin, and Luke O’Halloran
“If home was, and is, a means for staying alive, it was just as often transformed into something like a site of house arrest: a locus of boredom and idleness, loneliness, fear and anxiety, resource scarcity, domestic abuse and threats of eviction—an arena for a battle against loathsome despair.”
—Sam McKinniss

A History of Violence: Emmelyn Butterfield-Rosen on Félix Fénéon, anarchism, and dispossession
“With Fénéon, very much as with Baudelaire, the possibility remains open that violence is regarded as an end in itself, an object of aesthetic fascination, and not a means to an end of social progress.”
—Emmelyn Butterfield-Rosen

Sound Effects: Ina Blom on the art of Florian Hecker
“You are at once inside your own psychoacoustic space and inside a machine’s approximation of one.”
—Ina Blom

And: Jeff Gibson introduces an artist project by Wickerham & Lomax, Openings: Karen Archey on the art of Evelyn Taocheng Wang, Mara Hoberman on Victor Brauner, and more than 35 exhibition reviews from around the globe.

Plus: Margit Rowell on Barbara Rose, Sasha Geffen on SOPHIE, Nora N. Khan on Anne de Vries’s Deep Scroll, Chloe Wyma on The Tarot of Leonora Carrington, Julia Pelta Feldman on the limits of accessibility, and Adam Curtis shares his Top Ten.
