frieze magazine

Issue 196

June - August 2018

‘The human race has always clung to notions of borders, be they mental or physical. In recent years, though, welcome cracks are appearing – and that, as the great Leonard Cohen once sang, is how the light gets in.’
– Jennifer Higgie

Marking 80 years since the invention of LSD and 200 years since Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, the new issue of frieze is themed around ‘Altered States’ – cultural eruption, artistic experimentation and transformation. Featured artists, writers and designers include Sonia Boyce, Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Lantian Xie, David Lynch, Misheck Masamvu, Nick Mauss and Linda Stark among many others.

The artist's materials include avocado extract, wild walnut, yew berries, nettles, hematite and tea at David Lewis, New York
