Inside this issue

Martin Herbert's pick of must-see exhibitions this month.

Rick Lowe – Joshua Mack talks to the American artist about his life work, Project Row Houses, and its claim on understanding social engagement as art; meanwhile, Erik Morse considers the project's significance as art.

Individuality in the age of mass surveillance – Aoife Rosenmeyer considers Jill Magid’s strategies for infiltrating power systems, poetically carving out herself in the process.

From word to image – French poet and novelist Michel Houellebecq talks to Tom Emerson about about transitioning from the page to the spaces of Palais de Tokyo, where his exhibition opens on 23 June. 

Kim Córdova looks at recent evolutions in Francis Alÿs’s interventions in the social and urban fabrics of cities as he moves from Mexico City to a more international context.

British artist Roger Hiorns talks to J.J. Charlesworth about his recent large-scale public art commissions and how they challenge any cosy notions of what the genre can and should do.
