Frieze 187 – The May issue 2017
Frieze 187, the May issue, features an essay by Judith Clarke on the work of Rei Kawakubo and Comme des Garçons, ahead of an exhibition devoted to the designer opening at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art on 4 May. Ahead of the Venice Biennale, Tanya Harrod looks at the sculptures of Phyllida Barlow (representing Britain) and Dan Fox examines the social paintings of Mark Bradford (US Pavilion).
Also in this issue, Jace Clayton discusses the work of Ian Cheng, currently on show at MoMA PS1; we profile Hiwa K, who is included in this year’s documenta 14; and Ellen Mara de Wachter explores how artists are visualizing a world in which borders no longer define who we are. Plus 39 reviews from 24 cities, including the 2017 Whitney Biennial and Raymond Pettibon at the New Museum.
