In this issue, we’ve set our sights far and wide while continuing to bring the stories of visionary artists directly to our readers. Looking to history, we accompany Ed Ruscha as he considers the paintings of Thomas Cole, and, with an eye on mythology and universal symbols, we hear from Anselm Kiefer about his first major public sculpture to be shown in the United States, Uraeus. We consider film with Harmony Korine and Emmanuel Burdeau; poetry with Ellen Gallagher and Natasha Trethewey; the art of biography with Sir John Richardson and Jed Perl; cooking with Ruth Rogers and Derek Blasberg; architecture in an essay by James Lawrence on Island, Caruso St John and Marcus Taylor’s project for the British Pavilion at the International Architecture Biennale in Venice; and music with Marc Ribot and Billy Martin interviewed by Brett Littman. We also explore the work of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Robert Therrien, Mary Weatherford, Arakawa, Taryn Simon, Albert Oehlen, Romuald Hazoumè, and Yves Klein—and much more!
