tema celeste: March/April 2002 issue

Don’t miss the latest issue of tema celeste! Offering a lively, in-depth look at the international contemporary art scene, the March/April 2002 issue, now available at newsstands and fine bookstores, features a striking cover reproduction from Lee’s Season, a recent video work by rising Swiss artist Emmanuelle Antille, whose exclusive interview appears inside.

Editor Simona Vendrame’s conversation with William Kentridge provides a sneak preview of the complex and revealing project the renowned South African artist is preparing for Manifesta 4. On the other side of the Atlantic, Los Angeles artist Paul McCarthy, in a rare interview, addresses the influence of Americana on his distinct oeuvre. Art historian David Hopkins explores how Weegee inspired Warhol, and Amelia Jones argues that contemporary African-American artists are creating work that is anything but “post-black.” Curator Giorgio Verzotti describes Francesco Vezzoli’s lavishly embroidered video installations, ripe with references to cinema, music, literature, and pop culture. In other interviews, artist Jason Middlebrook explores the intersection of art and architecture, while Patrick Tuttofuoco talks about his dramatic performances in and around Milan.

In addition to the magazine’s regular “Self-Portraits” section (featuring artists Alexandra Ranner, Adrià Julià, Federico Pietrella, and the ELASTIC group of artistic research); profiles of Lucas Samaras, Catherine Opie, Ross Bleckner, and Antony Gormley; and an “Observatory” piece on actor/filmmaker Vincent Gallo’s latest foray into music, this issue offers the first installment of tema celeste’s “Survey,” an ongoing forum in which artists, curators, critics, and gallerists address crucial questions in the field of contemporary art.

And there’s more! Coverage of news, exhibitions, important publications, Web sites, and the art market make tema celeste THE essential guide to the contemporary art world. For daily updates, visit
