Inside this issue, Nathaniel Mary Quinn speaks with Anderson Cooper about the visionary nature of his art. We get a glimpse of Sterling Ruby’s newest sculptures and visit Tatiana Trouvé’s Between sky and earth in upstate New York. We hear from Albert Oehlen about his newest body of work, paintings made during a recent stay in Los Angeles. We’re delighted to have Carlos Valladares writing on the films and videos of Richard Serra and to have Richard Hell discussing Christopher Wool’s early encounters with German painters including Dieter Roth, Sigmar Polke, Martin Kippenberger, and Albert Oehlen. We take a moment to remember the incredible legacy of Robert Therrien (1947–2019) with Aimee Gabbard and hear from Jack Cowart, executive director of the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation, about the Foundation’s evolution. This edition also includes part three of Mark Z. Danielewski’s story “Love Is Not a Flame”; homages to Leonardo da Vinci, Dora Maar, and Betty Parsons; and features on the Fletcher family, Piero GoliaSetsuko, and Cy Twombly.

For all of this and so much more, order your copy or subscribe at the Gagosian Shop, or read the issue online.
