This month in Artforum:

Happier Endings: Catherine Quan Damman on the art of My Barbarian
“My Barbarian bring high-theory arcana into bawdy populist forms, marshaling their multicultural demographics to burlesque liberal fantasies of the melting pot, and vamping the world historical only to burn it down and throw a party around its fire.” —Catherine Quan Damman

Tauba Medium: Caroline A. Jones on the art of Tauba Auerbach
“In Auerbach’s canvases, paint provides the fuzzy logic that connects everything.” —Caroline A. Jones

Flight Fantasies: Mark Godfrey on the art of Petrit Halilaj
“Most visitors to Halilaj’s exhibitions are unfamiliar with the history of Kosovo, but they can viscerally feel the resonances of that history through his work.” —Mark Godfrey

Women and Faggots: Hari Nef on This American Wife
“The play does not indict its heroes or its divas so much as pathologize them as subjects of a cultural moment in which victimhood can be traded up for just about anything but a clean slate.” —Hari Nef

And: Lucy Ives on Meret Oppenheim’s Object, Sarah Oppenheimer talks about “Sensitive Machine,” David Rimanelli on Kayode Ojo, Dodie Bellamy on Judy Chicago, and more than 35 exhibition reviews from around the globe.

Plus: Amy Sillman on Louise Fishman, Michael Ned Holte on the Art Preserve of the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, James Rondeau on Yannis Tsarouchis, Pablo José Ramírez on the Rijksmuseum’s “Slavery” exhibition, and Piper Marshall on Ericka Beckman.
