Inside this issue, Cindy Sherman speaks with Derek Blasberg about her traveling survey exhibition, which arrives at the Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris, in April. David Reed and Katharina Grosse join us for a conversation about the temporal aspects of their practices; Jacquelynn Baas salutes the artist Isabelle Waldberg and considers her friendship with Marcel Duchamp; Rani Singh speaks with Irving Blum about his time working with John Mason at Ferus Gallery, Los Angeles, in the late 1950s and early 1960s; and Leah Levy talks to Suzanne Hudson about the life and work of another artist associated with Ferus during these years, Jay DeFeo. This edition also pays homage to Peggy Cooper Cafritz, the educator, art collector, philanthropist, and civil rights activist who founded the Duke Ellington School of the Arts, Washington, DC. Our “Building a Legacy” series continues with Katy Rogers, who speaks on the processes involved in starting and publishing a catalogue raisonné project. We’re also delighted to announce the first installment of our 2020 fiction series, “The Iconoclasts” by Anne Boyer.

Elsewhere in this issue, we hear from Jennifer Guidi on the subject of her most recent paintings; Vera Lutter and Michael Govan reflect on her nearly two-year residency at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, the fashion designers behind Proenza Schouler, explain how art continues to act as an inspiration; and Matthew Jeffrey Abrams details the various ways that Rome continues to influence the American painter Stanley Whitney.

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