frieze issue 80 out now

In the new frieze Tom Morton sets the scene for this themed issue by considering aesthetic and political elites from the painting of Jacques Louis David and Revolutionary France’s visual culture through to Yukio Mishima, Jean Cocteau, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie and Leslie Anderson’s If…

“That humans have so many rights, does not make a silent painting wrong.

I don’t do it for the people and I don’t do it against the people.

If at all, I do it from the people and after the people.”

Marlene Dumas’ project for frieze ‘The Right to be Silent (a conversation on elitism and accessibility)’ combines her writing and recent paintings to explore this issue’s theme.

Also featured: Martin Herbert on Enrico David, Jennifer Higgie on Dirk Bell, Dan Fox on Luchino Visconti and George Pendle on Bruce Conner. Michael Bracewell talks to Brian Ferry about the aesthetics of Roxy Music, live performance, art school and that white tuxedo.

In the front section Kodwo Eshun rediscovers Sun Ra’s Space is the Place; Dan Richardson considers the legacy of The Fountainhead author Ayn Rand; Brian Dillon explores Aby Warburg’s Mnemosyne Atlas, Jerome Boyd-Maunsell reads a new anthology of the elusive Arthur Rimabud’s writings and Olivia Plender meets the Magic Circle. Mark Godfrey and Rosie Bennett talk to Brian O’Doherty about the modern spectacular museum, the legacy of Inside the White Cube and his forthcoming retropsective.

The reviews section includes: Roger Hiorns, Robert Barry, Lee Bontecou, 8th Istanbul Biennal, Marc Camille Chaimowicz, James Lynch, Andrea Fraser, John Pilson, Des Hughes, Arnoud Holleman, ‘Tonite!’, Kerry James Marshall, ‘The Full English’, Gerard Byrne, Ellen Cantor and Joesph Grigley, Miriam Backstrom and Carsten Holler, ‘Retriever’, Francis Alys, Franz Gertsch, ‘Coolustre’, Eva Grubinger and ‘Trench Art’.
