Frieze

MAY ISSUE OUT NOW

one column image sample
'It is hard to single out one artist who I admire, as I adore so many artists from so many centuries.' - Paloma Varga Weisz

The May issue of frieze is now on sale and it's one of our biggest this year.

Heart-breaking Hallucinations
Cover artist Paloma Varga Weisz discusses how her pictorial language has evolved, from her father's illustrations of Jean Cocteau's poetry to Lucas Cranach, Giorgio de Chirico and Gerhard Merz.

Mergers & Acquisitions
As ​'Xu Zhen: A MadeIn Company Production' opens at Beijing's Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Colin Chinnery looks at the multifaceted career of this irreverent Chinese artist. ​'By dissolving his artistic identity into a commercial company, Xu Zhen could produce anything he wanted.'

Only The Lonely
Dan Fox talks to Michael Smith as the artist prepares for his first UK institutional show in Glasgow. They speak of minimalism, comedy, failure and a disturbingly overgrown alter ego called Baby Ikki.

Also: In our survey, Paul Clinton asks six artists and writers what it means to make queer art now; Cally Spooner's work explores how technology and new media are making performers of us all; we look at Matthew Barney's groundbreaking new operatic film, RIVER OF FUNDAMENT, and Jordan Wolfson ​discusses how Ingmar Bergman's films and Jeff Koons' sculptures have influenced his work.

All this and much more, including 33 reviews from around the world.
