We are thrilled to present Antwaun Sargent’s guest-edited supplement, “Social Works,” which includes a feature on Weems that pairs her photography with new poetry by Maya Phillips. The section also includes interviews with Rick Lowe, Linda Goode Bryant, Sir David Adjaye OBE, and Lauren Halsey; a look at Theaster Gates’s engagement with the archives of house music legend Frankie Knuckles; and a portfolio of works by Zalika Azim and Allana Clarke, both former fellows of nxthvn.
For the second iteration of our Eye on the Market series, Nick Simunovic shares his insights into the Asian art market, particularly focusing on Hong Kong. Our ongoing collaboration with PEN America brings us a new, haunting short story by Libby Flores: Mercury Was There. In our Building a Legacy feature, Delphine Huisinga and Charles Stuckey delve into the importance of chronologies.
Also inside the issue, Albert Oehlen speaks with Mark Godfrey about his new paintings; Larry Gagosian reflects on the incredible life and career of his friend Doris Ammann; we present a conversation with dance artist Eiko Otake and historian William Johnston about their forthcoming book A Body in Fukushima; and Taylor Aldridge reflects on the enduring legacy of Dr. David Driskell.
