“I need to look at my work. I need to bond with it, like it’s my child.” —Henry Taylor

In the January/February issue of frieze, Terence Trouillot profiles artist Henry Taylor ahead of shows at The Fabric Workshop and Museum, Philadelphia, and The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. Plus, one year after Russia declared war on Ukraine, artists and writer respond to the crisis in a dossier, including: a personal essay by painter and writer Kateryna Aliinyk; Adam Mazur profiles Taras Gembik, an artist and performer organising picnics to raise money for Ukraine in Warsaw, Poland; Nikita Kadan on what art can mean in a time of war; editor-in-chief Andrew Durbin interviews Olha Honchar, the director of Territory of Terror Museum, which documents war crimes, and the coordinator for the Museum Crisis Center, an organization helping Ukrainian museums rescue their holdings from occupied zones. 

Profile: Henry Taylor
“I became the observer because I was trying to understand my own life and that’s why I started making pictures. I just like looking at people.” Terence Trouillot considers how Henry Taylors oeuvre goes far beyond the canvas. 

Dossier: Forms of Resistance 
“Since the rockets did not fly at us immediately, we started to help.” In this dossier, we profile, interview and collect first-hand accounts from four Ukrainians, working within and without the country, who are striving to preserve their culture—and their lives. 

Also featuring   
In the wake of the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe vs Wade, which protected universal abortion access, Megan Nolan examines female rage and abortion rights in film and literature; Tausif Noor speaks to artist Sunil Gupta ahead of a forthcoming catalogue; in “1,500 words”, Justin Beal reflects on the late Mike Davis’s Ecology of Fear (1998) and the author’s penchant for turning information into stories.

Columns: Adolescence
McKenzie Wark reconnects with dance in her ‘second adolescence’ after her transition; Ian Bourland writes about filmmaker Sky Hopinka and Powwow youth survival; Justine Kurland explores the ethics of photographing children; Ilana Kaplan profiles The Linda Lindas, an LA-based, all-girl, teenage punk band tackling the heteropatriarchy one song at a time. Plus, five artists—Kelly Akashi, Gina Fischli, Sung Hwan Kim, Wangechi Mutu and Atiéna Lansade Riollet—recall formative interactions with works of art. 

Plus, Lynne Tillman responds to a single work by Diane Arbus. Finally, Going Up, Going Down charts what’s hot and what’s not in the global art world and the latest iteration of our Lonely Arts column.
