frieze magazine

Issue 201

March 2019

The March issue of frieze features a cross section of reports from Buenos Aires: with an introduction by author and art writer Maria Gainza, an artist project by Ad Minoliti, whose hybrid paintings and installations have been the subject of recent shows in San Francisco, Baden-Baden and Mexico City; and curator Renata Cervetto in conversation with pioneering conceptual and performance artist Marta Minujín.

Also in this issue: Claire-Louise Bennett delves into the fantasy worlds of Dorothea Tanning on the occasion of her major retrospective, ‘Behind the Door, Another Invisible Door’, which travels from Madrid’s Museo Reina Sofia to London’s Tate Modern. Hettie Judah interviews Petrit Halilaj in the wake of his three-part project in Kosovo’s Cultural Centre of Runik, Bern’s Zentrum Paul Klee and Turin’s Merz Foundation. Chris Fite-Wassilak navigates the purgatorial worlds of Morag Keil on the eve of her solo exhibition at London’s ICA. Kito Nedo reflects upon the aftermath of German reunification through the lens of Henrike Naumann’s historically interventional installation, Anschluss ’90 (2018). And Jochen Lempert presents a series of specially-commissioned photographs for the issue’s visual essay.
