This month in Artforum:

To celebrate Claes Oldenburg’s immense contribution to contemporary art, Artforum has invited curator Achim Hochdörfer, artists Charles Ray and Rachel Harrison, and his longtime gallerist Paula Cooper to pay tribute to the artist.


“In Claes’s art, things are agents pursuing their own agendas, connecting with us in subliminal and mysterious ways.”
—Achim Hochdörfer

Michael Dango on the art of Tania Candiani
“The static weapons will pierce you only if you charge at them. This is a self-defense that is collective.”

Barry Schwabsky on the art of Sanya Kantarovsky
“For all his conversancy with the alchemy of paint, Kantarovsky possesses a cartoonist’s proficiency with the little nuances of line that sum up a character or an attitude.”

Domenick Ammirati on artist-run galleries
“While the art world has changed vastly since the early 1960s, the notion that attention is the most valuable currency of all has not.”


And: Tara McDowell on D Harding; James Quandt, Yvonne Rainer, and Amy Taubin on Jean-Luc Godard; Sharon Lockhart on Silke Otto-Knapp; David Joselit on “Cubism and the Trompe l’Oeil Tradition”; Kate Sutton on Jože Plečnik; and Paris Starn shares her Top Ten 

Plus: Molly Warnock on “Les Choses and more than thirty-five exhibition reviews from around the world.
