The November/December issue of frieze is out now, with features on the iconic American sculptor Claes Oldenburg, a survey on the future of the museum, and a conversation between artists Nicolas Party and Jesse Wine, ahead of their collaborative installation at Rise Projects; plus columns and reviews from around the world, including a questionnaire from Agnès Varda.

House Work: Claes Oldenburg
“It is part of being alone to be able to have conversations with the ordinary things around you, that are not normally taken for being alive.” On the eve of his solo show at Paula Cooper Gallery, Claes Oldenburg talked to co-editor Dan Fox about domestic landscapes, finding art on the streets of New York and the importance of humour in his 60-year career.

What Is the Future of the Museum?
Sam Thorne (Artistic Director, Tate St Ives) explores possible futures for gallery visitors and invites ten art professionals to envision the museum 25 years from now: “I hope the museum will survive as a place where things that have fallen out of time are allowed to slumber—to be woken one day with a kiss from some inspired princess or prince.” (Bice Curiger)

Also featuring:
Artists Nicolas Party and Jesse Wine talk about forms, frames and lessons from Giorgio Morandi; Kaelen Wilson-Goldie looks at the evolution of Emily Jacir’s artistic imagination; art historian Andrianna Campbell and photographer Matthew Connors visit Cuba to explore the shifting meaning of political monuments; and Ellen Mara De Wachter discovers the provocative work of the Japanese collective Chim↑Pom.

Columns & reviews:
Winner of the 2015 Clark Prize for Excellence in Arts Writing, Eileen Myles presents her “Ideal Syllabus”; Norwegian filmmaker Ane Hjort Guttu’s “Life in Film” reveals childhood heroines and Swedish love stories; and in “State of the Art,” co-editor Jörg Heiser asks: “What kind of artistic response to human crises doesn’t feel phoney?”

Plus, 31 exhibition reviews from around the world, and a questionnaire from French director Agnès Varda, who was awarded an honorary Palme d’or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.
