This month in Artforum:

More Real Than Real: Tim Griffin on the art of Robert Longo
“Longo’s most recent pieces capture what is made visible when the myths can no longer obscure what lies beneath the surface.” —Tim Griffin

Your Loss: Hal Foster on Ed Atkins’s The Worm, 2021
“Rather than reiterate how the human is given over to technology, Atkins seeks, perhaps impossibly, to bend technology back toward the human.” —Hal Foster

Pattern Recognition: Lynne Cooke on the Pattern and Decoration movement
“The interrelated concepts of decoration, ornament, and pattern are anything but universal, monolithic, and fixed.” —Lynne Cooke

You’ll Be My Mirror: Amy Taubin speaks with Todd Haynes about The Velvet Underground
“The Velvet Underground burned so quickly that it felt appropriate that the film should have a kind of meteoric trajectory.” —Todd Haynes

And: Michael Dango on the art of Mona Hatoum, Lloyd Wise introduces an artist portfolio by Diane Severin Nguyen, Suzanne Hudson on the art of Jay DeFeo, Colby Chamberlain on Huguette Caland, and more than thirty-five exhibition reviews from around the globe.

Plus: Daniel Birnbaum on Christian Boltanski, Audrey Wollen on Kaari Upson, J. Hoberman on Neelon Crawford, Joe Bucciero on Joseph E. Yoakum, Janis Tomlinson on “Goya” at the Fondation Beyeler, and Raque Ford shares her Top Ten.
