Fine Art Book Announcements News and Information That Means Business

Artforum October 2012 Edition Published

Artforum October 2012 Edition has been published. From the screen to the wall, from the temporary pavilion to the art-fair tent, the interface between ART AND ARCHITECTURE is more highly charged than ever. Where exactly does the relationship between these two disciplines stand today? Artforum invited eight contributors on the front lines of this exchange—cover artist Hilary Lloyd, critics Hal Foster and Sylvia Lavin, architects Steven Holl and Philippe Rahm, curator Hans Ulrich Obrist, and artists Thomas Demand and Dorit Margreiter—to engage in a conversation moderated by senior editor Julian Rose.

Also: Martin Herbert analyzes the filmic and aural experiments of 2012 Turner Prize nominee Luke Fowler; in an exclusive preview of his forthcoming book, Medieval Modern, art historian Alexander Nagel casts an anachronic glance at Robert Smithson’s non-sites; Molly Warnock pens a “Close-Up” on Simon Hantaï‘s Étude, 1969, recently acquired by the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC; Branden W. Joseph singles out two new studies of Warhol’s films by Douglas Crimp and J. J. Murphy; and Robert Pincus-Witten remembers the venerable gallerist Ivan Karp.

And: P. Adams Sitney pays homage at the Temenos to filmmaker Gregory J. Markopoulos‘s Eniaios; John Elderfield sees another side of Bob Dylan in Tempest, the bard’s latest release; Kaelen Wilson-Goldie sits in on Ashkal Alwan’s Home Workspace Program in Beirut; Bob Nickas meditates on the concrete casts of Justin Matherly in this issue’s “Openings”; Sarah K. Rich visits the Palais de Tokyo’s La Triennale 2012; Michael Ned Holte assesses Angeleno art now at the inaugural iteration of Made in L.A.; and Berlin-based artists Jay Chung & Q Takeki Maeda tally their Top Ten.

Plus, this year’s FALL PREVIEW: Artforum looks ahead to thirty-six noteworthy exhibitions opening worldwide, from the Vancouver Art Gallery’s major Ian Wallace retrospective to the newly reopened Stedelijk Museum’s Mike Kelley exhibition.
