Flash Art International No.242
May-June 2005


The May-June issue of Flash Art is now available and is full to bursting with much of the best and latest contemporary art from around the world.

John McWhinnie investigates the hidden currency of Richard Princes art, Thomas Demand speaks to Andrea Bellini about his working process, and in a special project for Flash Art, Maurizio Cattelan interviews Martin Creed. Pablo Lafuente further explores Creeds relationship with words in his article Philosophical Remarks, while Christopher Miles surveys new sculpture in Los Angeles.
Frédéric Moser and Philippe Schwinger take us inside the machine of representation in their recent work Unexpected Rules, while Nick Stillman hacks into the retro computer game world of Cory Arcangel, before passing the joystick to Hou Hanru to do battle with Cao Feis superheroes.

Also in this edition, the jury is out on Damien Hirsts new series of paintings The Elusive Truth; Greater New York 2005 comes under the scalpel; and Sarah Douglas looks into the collection of Ingvild Goetz. Diego Perrones work with bells has great appeal in the Global Art section, and Alison Moffetts enchanted drawings are profiled in this issues Ouverture.

In the news section, Flash Art keeps you up to date with biennials around the world with previews of the 51st Venice Biennale and Prague Biennale 2, Kaelen Wilson-Goldies report on Sharjah Biennial, and an interview with Charles Esche and Vasif Kortun about the forthcoming 9th Istanbul Biennial.
