Frieze issue 86 out now

Frieze Magazine


In the October issue of frieze Bruce Nauman talks to Joan Simon about his commission for the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern, poetry, architecture, sound and language: ‘Raw Materials… it’s the rhythms and textures of the texts and how they relate to each other, and how they make their own new meaning.’ Also Richard Prince fuses fact and fiction in his personal response to Bruce Nauman’s work.

Tom Morton considers Urs Fischer’s work as capable of transforming even the ugliest of ducklings into a weirdly beautiful swan.

Jennifer Higgie discusses Lisa Yuskavage’s paintings of near hallucinogenic visions of femininity.

Jonathan Romney explores the appropriation of experimental film techniques by mainstream cinema.

In our latest City Report, Tirdad Zolghadr visits Tehran to observe a flourishing contemporary scene, Kianoosh Vahabi provides a local perspective and Negar Azimi explores the second-hand bookstalls of the city.

Also featured: Ryan Gander by Mark Beasley; Tommy Stockel by Lars Bang Larsen; Ernesto Caivano by Peter Eleey and Anselm Reyle by Kirsty Bell.

The front section includes a ‘State of the Art’ editorial by Jennifer Higgie, followed by frieze’s regular new columnists: Robert Storr discusses a newly calibrated rainbow of fear and anxiety at work in the black and white political climate of ‘with us or against us’; George Pendle’s regular ‘Informant’ column asks ‘What has happened to art prizes?’ and Brian Dillon’s new column, ‘Laughter Tears and Rage’, discusses an ancient but historically pressing image: the hooded face. Also, Steve Stern visits Coney Island, Michael Bracewell and Liam Gillick debate ‘Sentimentality’, Rob Young discovers the original modern museum in the 17th-century Musaeum Kircherianum and Mark Webber reports on the premiere of the opening cycles of Gregory Markopoulos’ 80 hour film Eniaios.

The reviews section includes: Fifth International SITE Santa Fe Biennial, Jack Smith, Kaucyila Brooke, Ant Farm, Shimabuku, Anri Sala, Christopher Knowles, ‘Art of the Garden’, ‘Shake/State Affair’, Biennial of Sydney, ‘Fire and Brimstone’, ‘What Did You Expect?’, Karel Funk, Helen Chadwick, ‘Ulysses’, ‘Beyond Geometry’, Pavel Buchler, Rudolf Stingel, Jonah Freeman, Marin Sastre, Sture Johannesson.

Finally, on the back page Sturtevant responds to the Questionnaire.
