Inside the issue, musician and writer Richard Hell muses on Richard Prince’s High Times series and the images’ connections to children’s drawings, popular culture, and the artist’s earlier work. We hear from Urs Fischer and Madeline Hollander about their project PLAY and host an intimate conversation between Claude Picasso and Sir John Richardson. We discuss the Louvre Abu Dhabi with Jean Nouvel and Giuseppe Penone, and learn more about the ideas behind Sarah Sze’s exhibition in Rome. We also take a look at Joe Bradley’s newest paintings, Andy Warhol’s Polaroids, Ed Ruscha’s works on paper, Sterling Ruby’s ceramics, and much more!
