This month in Artforum:

Rebekah Rutkoff on Lillian Schwartz and the invention of digital art:

“Schwartz abandoned the materiality of paint in her computer art, but it remained a guiding force, a figurative anchor.”

Portfolio—Carmen Herrera:

Presenting an exclusive portfolio of the Minimalist master, whose major Whitney survey this fall finally brings the centenarian painter the attention she deserves:

“No matter how abstract Herrera’s painting is, no matter how rigorously the composition follows a graph-like logic, it is also a composition that depends on reference to the world out there.”
—Sarah K. Rich

Jonathan Berger talks to Johanna Fateman about the art of Ellen Cantor:

With seven shows in New York this fall highlighting the late artist’s multifaceted practice, the curator of Cantor’s survey at 80WSE discusses the transgressive, trailblazing feminist’s work and legacy:

“Cantor’s ‘misuse’ of material was her critique. One isn’t supposed to know about Snow White’s sex life. But she shows it to us.”
—Johanna Fateman

Donald Judd—a preview of the artist’s newly published writings:

“Art should resist all received information aesthetic or otherwise.”

Homi K. Bhabha on William Kentridge’s More Sweetly Play the Dance:

“Kentridge’s processions are acts of hospitality, ongoing gatherings of people and things on the move.”  

Close-Up—Dan Nadel on Joe Bradley’s “Krasdale,” 2016:

“Bradley’s cartoon line veers into abstraction and out the other side, unscathed.”

Chris Kraus on Julie Becker:

“Becker brilliantly plumbed pop mythologies, from conspiracy theory to stoner lore.”

Openings: Amy Taubin on Sophia Al-Maria:

“Al-Maria’s aesthetic is one of epiphany by association.”  

And: Luc Sante on Peter Hutton, Sérgio B. Martins on Tunga, P. Adams Sitney on Temenos 2016, Isabel Flower on the sneaker market, and Danica Novgorodoff on Aidan Koch’s After Nothing Comes.

Plus: Noam M. Elcott on László Moholy-Nagy, Jenni Sorkin on Made in L.A., Chanon Kenji Praepipatmongkol on The Propeller Group, Kaelen Wilson-Goldie on The Arab Nude, Cat Kron on Eric Mack, David Salle and Linda Yablonsky on Lisa Liebmann, and artist Nikolas Gambaroff shares his Top Ten.
