Issue U
Since the birth of the first public museums roughly three hundred years ago, art as we know it has been profoundly affected by the poetics and policies of the institutions that house, display, and collect works of art. For Issue U, we explore how art behaves within an “Institutionalized” framework. We will be interviewing figureheads around the world and exploring established art institutions, non-commercial galleries, alternative spaces and museums, to gain a deeper understanding of what happens when art and institution conflate, and how these seemingly oppositional forces react and interact.

We are proud to present a series of interviews with some of the world’s leading curators and museum directors discussing what’s hot on the art scene today. Featured interviews include: Matthew Higgs from New York’s White Columns, an alternative non-profit exhibition space devoted primarily to emerging artists unaffiliated with galleries; Kathy Kimball from San Jose’s Institute of Contemporary Art, a non profit visual arts space featuring artists from around the Bay Area; Swiss curator and art critic Hans Ulrich Obrist, Director of International Projects at London’s Serpentine Gallery; Senior Curator Mami Katoaka from Tokyo’s Mori Museum; and Susanne Pfeffer from one of Berlin’s foremost contemporary art institutions, KW Institute for Contemporary Art. We will also interview Los Angeles’ own James Elaine who curates the Hammer Projects series at the Armand Hammer Museum.

As usual, we will also feature a number of show reviews, including Matthew Monahan’s enigmatic sculptures at the MOCA, Tom Sach’s effusive installations and constructions at the Rose Art Museum, Mark Bradford’s sensuous collage abstractions at the Whitney, John Kessler’s drawing based works that confront the collusion of advertising, propaganda, surveillance and technology and the MCA’s current show, “Sympathy for the Devil: Art and Rock and Roll Since 1967” that examines the relationship between rock and roll and contemporary visual art.

Also featured is an article on Skowhegan’s seminal artists residency, interviews with hip hop group Baby Elephant and Fugazi’s legendary front man, Ian Mackaye, and a feature on graffiti artist Set.
