This month in Artforum:

A Jasper Johns Retrospective
On the occasion of “Jasper Johns: Mind/Mirror,” a major retrospective of the artist’s work taking place simultaneously at the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Artforum takes stock of the show’s novel structure; curator Harry Cooper offers his read of the sprawling and bifurcated exhibition, while art historians Rosalind E. KraussAlex Kitnick, and Darby English weigh in on individual aspects of Johns’s endlessly generative, quintessentially American oeuvre. 

Under the Skin of Newness: Domenick Ammirati on the New Museum’s Triennial and Greater New York at MoMA PS1
“The Triennial announces a desire to transport us somewhere, possibly into a future anterior, possibly sideways, to a place a little dreamy, a little beaten down.” —Domenick Ammirati

Body Image: Daniel Marcus on the art of Hannah Wilke
“The link between sex and gender is often tenuous, if not indefinite.” —Daniel Marcus

Devan Díaz on Drake Carr
“The inhabitants of Carr’s world want us to see their look, maybe their ass, but nothing else. They’re private in a public way.” —Devan Díaz

And: Mostafa Heddaya on art and comparisonThomas Crow on Billy AppleAllen Ruppersberg on Margo LeavinAmy Taubin on Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s MemoriaAnna Shechtman and D. A. Miller on Pedro Almodóvar’s Parallel Mothers, and Patric Dicaprio shares his Top Ten.

Plus: Michael Lobel on Romare Bearden in the 1930sDaniel Birnbaum on Vivian SuterBriony Fer on “Afterness,” and more than 35 exhibition reviews from around the globe.
