Artforum #58-10 – July-August 2020

 - Artforum #58-10
Artforum Summer Issue.

July/August in Artforum:

Artist Project: Ja'Tovia Gary invites five young Black women artists—Eniola Dawodu, Oroma Elewa, Jazmine Hayes, Fatima Jamal, and Sydney Vernon—to share her space in the magazine.

"Black women's leadership, criticality, and insight should be at the fore not simply during moments of crisis but as we move beyond the current social formations, which are crumbling before our very eyes, and begin to conceive and prefigure new frameworks for community and cooperation."
—Ja'Tovia Gary

Artist Project: Jamal Cyrus talks to Ciarán Finlayson about Liberation Rotation (Ollie Towards a Metamorphosis), 2020

"It seems like one way of extending these political moments involves slowing them down, making them a part of our everyday culture, our popular culture."
—Jamal Cyrus

1000 Words: Cy Gavin talks to David Velasco about this issue's cover image, Untitled (Bald Eagle), 2020

"I thought about the ubiquity of the eagle on American seals—the mythology that surrounds the animal, this weird, moldering relic of an empire."
—Cy Gavin

On the Verge: Paul B. Preciado on revolution

"The crisis is a call, not to arms, but rather to dreams, a call to constitute a vast new countercultural force that can act against the techno-patriarchal front."
—Paul B. Preciado

And: Zack Hatfield on LaToya Ruby Frazier's The Last Cruze, 2019; Daniel Marcus on Keith Haring's safe sex; Ciarán Finlayson on Dawoud Bey's Untitled #14 (Site of John Brown's Tannery), 2017; Felicity D. Scott on Countryside, The Future; Tatiana Flores on Vida Americana: Mexican Muralists Remake American Art, 1925–1945; and more than 40 exhibition reviews from around the globe.

Plus: Achim Hochdörfer on Wade Guyton, Ida Panicelli and Daniel Birnbaum on Germano Celant, Tim Griffin on Hal Foster's What Comes After Farce?, Alex Kitnick on the public art of Lower Manhattan, Celeste Olalquiaga on the value of relics, Nasser Rabbat on Inspired by the East, and Samuel R. Delany shares his Top Ten.

Artforum is the leading contemporary art magazine and holds the unique roles of institution, nexus, and foremost tastemaker of the art world. It delivers the highest level of critical discourse about contemporary visual culture to a diverse international audience and is often the first to identify artists whose work comes to define eras. Launched in California in 1962, Artforum moved to New York in 1967, where it is still based.
