frieze magazine

Issue 147

May 2012

This month sees a new-look frieze magazine, with a fresh typographic approach combined with new sections and features. The redesign was overseen by Art Director Sonya Dyakova, who explains that she aimed to produce an “expressive, visually arresting publication.”

The May issue introduces Influences, in which artists talk about the key images that have inspired their work; new approaches to the work of Focus artists, including case studies and studio visits; plus the re-introduction of the Picture Piece.
