Anicka Yi: Multi-Course Small Plates, Craft Lofts, Prix Fixe
"Saline lingers, as a vapour. When I sleep, my left ear is always parching, so dry and thirsty." Award-winning fiction writer Joanna Ruocco responds to the work of Anicka Yi, recipient of the 2017 Hugo Boss Prize and the current subject of a solo show at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.

Get Real: Susanne von Falkenhausen
"Art should not be incarcerated by the grandiose pretensions of curatorial mission statements laying claim to the political and moral avant-garde." Leading art historian and academic Susanne von Falkenhausen explores the claims to "authenticity" and social relevance being made within large-scale exhibitions such as documenta 14.

Also featuring:
Darian Leader reflects on guilt, humour and dislocation in Andy Holden’s cartoon universe; Barbara Casavecchia interviews Irma Blank about her relationship to word and image; Ben Eastham investigates John Gerrard’s digital portrait of the landscape that transformed the planet; Anne Hilde Neset explores the weird interior of the self in the work of artist and singer Tori Wrånes; En Liang Khong assesses the enduring influence of China’s classical landscape tradition on the country’s contemporary art; and Evan Moffitt considers the films of Bárbara Wagner and Benjamin de Burca, which probe race and gender in Brazilian popular music.

Columns & reviews:
Michelle Orange investigates why discrimination against women is still endemic in the film industry; Jack Self reports on the socially committed architecture of Diébédo Francis Kéré, who designed this year’s Serpentine Galleries Pavilion; Paul Clinton reviews a new English translation of Pierre Klossowski’s erotic theory of economics, La Monnaie vivante; Dehlia Hannah sends us a postcard from the first Antarctic Biennale; and artist Jennifer West discusses the movies that have influenced her.

Plus, 38 exhibition reviews from around the world, including "Around Town" reports from Basel and Berlin; while curator and co-founder of Skulptur Projekte Münster Kasper König answers our questionnaire.
