Frieze 219 – Raúl de Nieves

Frieze 219 – Raúl de Nieves | “Sometimes, things have to fall apart in order to build up and become stronger. Sometimes, you have to get cut in order to heal.” – Raúl de Nieves

In the May issue of frieze, Evan Moffitt profiles artist, performer and musician Raúl de Nieves, whose survey at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston opens in August. Ahead of a major exhibition of his work at London’s Serpentine Galleries, photographer James Barnor speaks with writer Afua Hirsch. And Zanele Muholi answer our questionnaire.

Profile: Evan Moffitt on Raúl de Nieves 

“When I first met Raúl De Nieves, he was a fixture of queer nightlife in New York. He was easy to spot from a distance, typically dressed in an oversized poncho with a brightly dyed, faux-fur coat and ribbons in his braids.” As De Nieves prepares for a major exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston this autumn, Evan Moffitt visits the New York–based artist as he reflects on an unusual journey through churches, antique shops, and concert stages.

Interview: Afua Hirsch and James Barnor 

“You form the story before you take the pictures: you take two or three, and you are on the way.” On the eve of his 92nd birthday and a major retrospective at the Serpentine Gallery, James Barnor speaks to Afua Hirsch about why he will always feel lucky to have documented Ghanaian independence in 1957.
