May 25–31, 2022
Tetsuya Ishida (1973–2005) came of age as a painter during Japan’s “lost decade”—a time of nationwide economic recession that lasted through the 1990s. In his afflictive paintings, he captured the feelings of hopelessness, claustrophobia, and emotional isolation that burdened him and dominated Japanese society. Throughout his career, Ishida provided vivid allegories of the challenges to Japanese life and morale in paintings and graphic works charged with dark Orwellian absurdity.

Poet and novelist Dodie Bellamy visits the artist Louise Bonnet at her Los Angeles studio as she prepares for an exhibition of new works in Hong Kong and the inclusion of one of her paintings in the 59th Biennale di Venezia.

Artist to Artist: Pat Steir and Sarah Sze
On the occasion of her exhibition of recent paintings, presented at Gagosian in Rome, Pat Steir met with fellow artist Sarah Sze for a wide-ranging discussion—from shared inspirations and influences to the role of chance, contingency, place, and time in painting.
On the occasion of an exhibition at Gagosian, New York, from May 5 to June 18, 2022, Max Dax met with Andreas Gursky to speak with the photographer about his new work.
