frieze issue 83 out now:

In the May issue frieze quiz Dan Cameron, Dan Fox, Jennifer Higgie, Matthew Higgs, Katy Siegel, Roberta Smith and Neville Wakefield about the 2004 Whitney Biennial:

‘The Whitney Biennial should hurl itself at the newest developments, but always with a backwards look.’ Dan Cameron

‘Biennials may be the new endangered species, their pastures overgrazed by art fairs, whose purpose is partial and equivocal.’ Neville Wakefield

‘The Whitney needs to avoid being a chart-toppers run-down of the tediously hip.’ Dan Fox

‘It was nice of the curators to include non-native artists residing in the US but apparently it’s easier to get in via Italy than Tennessee’. Katy Siegel

Alex Farquharson explores Cameron Jamie’s fascination with wrestling, the Los Angeles valley suburbs of his childhood and Old and New World rituals from Halloween to the ancient Austrian custom of Kranky Klaus.

Also featured: Kate Bush on Gabriel Kuri, Dan Fox on Luke Fowler, Tom Morton on Xavier Veilhan, Brian Dillon on Emma Kay and James Trainor on the performances of William Pope.L.

The reviews section includes: The Uncanny’, Surasi Kusolwong, Edgar Arceneaux and Rodney McMillian, Phillip Allen, ‘Be Afraid’, Jane South, Gail Pickering, East Africa Art Biennale, Jan de Cock, Robert Mapplethorpe, Paul Schutze, The Snow Show, Brian Jungen, Kaye Donachie, ‘X-screen’, Loretta Lux, Jon Pylypchuk, ‘That bodies speak has been known for a long time’, John Salt, ‘I’ Assasin’ and Sean Landers reviews Sean Landers.
