The January/February issue of frieze is out now. Artist Hilary Lloyd creates the first commissioned artwork for our new "visual essay" series; Amalia Pica interviews Beatriz González; plus, monographs on Elaine Lustig Cohen and Angelica Mesiti and columns and reviews from around the world.

Fire, Air, Earth and Water
"Shy people are generally very reserved, but when we want to say something, we go off like a bomb." On the eve of her retrospective at CAPC museé d’art contemporain de Bordeaux, Beatriz González talks about her six-decade career with artist Amalia Pica.

How We Speak
"Tender moments lie at the heart of Mesiti’s work. Each piece evokes the complex simplicity of an encounter between living beings." From the endangered heritage of whistling to a ritualistic "hair-dance," Tom Jeffreys discovers myriad forms of humans communication in the films of Angelica Mesiti.

Also featuring:
Dan Fox looks at the current nostalgia for New York’s "bad old days" of the 1970s and ’80s; Evan Moffitt explores how artists Bethany Collins, Steffani Jemison, Adam Pendleton and Kameelah Janan Rasheed are using black radical poetry to unpack subjectivity and race; Alice Twemlow reflects on the career of artist, designer, collector and archivist Elaine Lustig Cohen; and artist Haegue Yang, winner of the 2018 Wolfgang Hahn Prize, talks about the objects and ideas that have shaped her thinking.

Columns and reviews
