Frieze is insightful, intelligent and exquisitely designed. It’s the leading magazine in contemporary art and culture.
Frieze 193 – The March issue sees Ben Eastham profile the career of British artist Tacita Dean, who has three concurrent exhibitions – ‘Landscape’, ‘Portrait’ and ‘Still Life’ – opening in March 2018 as part of an unprecedented collaboration between three major London galleries: the National Portrait Gallery, the Royal Academy of Arts and the National Gallery.
Also in Frieze 193: Iraqi-American artist Michael Rakowitz talks to Kaelen Wilson-Goldie about his practice. Ying Zhou responds to the paintings of Beijing-based artist Cui Jie. Sarinah Masukor interviews British artist Naeem Mohaiemen. Erik Morse reflects on how the theme of sleep has permeated works by a broad range of contemporary artists – from Joseph Cornell’s experimental collage film Rose Hobart (1936) through Andy Warhol’s 1963 film Sleep and Tsai Ming-liang’s Goodbye Dragon Inn (2003) to Cornelia Parker’s The Maybe (2013) and Véréna Paravel and Lucien Castaing-Taylor’s somniloquies (2017). Answering our March issue questionnaire is Japanese artist Chiharu Shiota.
In the front section: following the opening of Design Society, in collaboration with London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, and the bi-city biennale of urbanism and architecture in Shenzhen, Bea Leanza considers how the Pearl River Delta is repositioning itself as a design hub; Audrea Lim reports on gentrification-driven Chinese-American activism in New York and the construction of Chinatowns globally; while Jessica Loudis considers four recently released documentary films – Erase and Forget, Le Fort des fous, Spell Reel and Tonsler Park – exploring unstable national identities.
