Inside the issue, Richard Hell examines the evolution of Wool’s art practice, looking specifically at the artist’s move to Marfa, Texas, and the sculpture and photography that grew from that part-time relocation. We take a close look at recent work by Theaster Gates and delve into the archives of Nam June Paik to explore his writings. The edition also includes features on twentieth-century modernists, with articles on Sergei Diaghilev, Curzio Malaparte, and Charlotte Perriand; an interview about art theorist Carl Einstein; and excerpts from Man Ray’s autobiography. We hear from artists Huma Bhabha, Rachel Feinstein, and Rudolf Polanszky, and are delighted to include a portfolio of Richard Serra’s latest works. Our Building a Legacy series continues with a conversation about the complexities inherent to posthumous editions and reproductions in sculpture and photography. This issue also includes the final installment of Mark Z. Danielewski’s story “Love Is Not a Flame”; an homage to Grace McCann Morley; the first installment of John Elderfield’s two-part essay on Édouard Manet’s The Execution of Maximilian of 1868; and articles on mambo, Bob Kaufman, Jerry Schatzberg, and Andy Warhol.

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