This month in Artforum:

Tim Griffin on the art of Virginia Overton
“Overton recognizes that to give attention to the use of objects or their history is, fundamentally, to consider their place in the hands of people.” —Tim Griffin

Ed Halter and Tobi Haslett on the Otolith Group
“In the name of the Otolith Group lie intimations of a sixth sense that may be cinema’s truly primary role, an inner sense of space and time, of forward motion.” —Ed Halter

Sasha Frere-Jones on the art of Éliane Radigue
“Radigue made it her mission to find the events that exist below and above music and were there before any composer was born.” —Sasha Frere-Jones

Kaelen Wilson-Goldie on the art of Ruth Asawa
“Asawa was ambivalent about craft. Without question, her most important teacher at Black Mountain was Josef Albers, a painter above all, who uttered endless aphorisms such as ‘Art is never wrong.’” —Kaelen Wilson-Goldie

And: Bruce Hainley on André Cadere’s itinerant art, David Rimanelli introduces a portfolio of Pierre Molinier’s paintings, Erika Balsom on Ruth Beckermann’s MUTZENBACHER, Susan L. Aberth on “Supernatural America,” Alex Kitnick on “Lifes,” Barry Schwabsky on Rackstraw Downes, Hannah Stamler on Suzanne Valadon, and Issy Wood shares her Top Ten

Plus: Peter Lunenfeld on “City of Cinema: Paris 1850–1907” and more than 35 exhibition reviews from around the world.
