In this issue:

Karen Archey discusses the daily celebration of life and love in the work of Dorothy Iannone.
"For Iannone, it is precisely the subjective, biographical and narrative approach to her practice that continues to be so revelational. This modus operandi, so respectfully counter to the normal authoritative, self–aggrandizing and pseudo–cerebral voice that still dominates artistic discourse today, is also that which probab ly sidelined the artist for so many decades."
—Karen Archey

Ruairiadh O'Connell speaks with Darren Flook about waiting, honesty and hope in his artistic process.


In anticipation of the coming academic year, we examine the current state of art education, asking the directors, presidents and coordinators of twelve major art schools across the globe to describe their vision for art education, particularly in terms of how their program establishes a balance between knowledge and know–how.

The New Uncanny

Gary Indiana talks to Lodovico Pignatti Morano about the difficulty of depicting our ugly reality.
"What interests me in life are the secret things. What I see as the whole process of the world now is the elimination of all that wonder and mystery of the unknown. Even writing — you'd read Joseph Conrad or any writer that you admired, and it let you look through a keyhole at something that was secret, that not everybody knew about."
—Gary Indiana

Maurizio Cattelan asks Francesco Vezzoli to see himself as if he was…
"If I were one of my works, I would be the next one. I am very detached from the works out there; and I kind of blame myself for being as such. For me there is only 'one work,' which is not necessarily a work of art, and it is my life. Therefore I can only project myself into the future, into the next project."
—Francesco Vezzoli

Edward Sanderson explore the disjointed, ritualistic and obsessive activities "taking place" in Fang Lu's videos.
