Frieze – Issue 191
Frieze is the leading magazine for contemporary art and culture. Set up in 1991, published 8 times a year and with offices in London, New York and Berlin, frieze includes essays, reviews and columns by today's most forward-thinking writers, artists and curators.
The November/December issue of frieze leads with a City Report from Cape Town, in which Sean O’Toole considers the impact on the local arts scene of a host of new private museums – including the recently opened Zeitz Museum of Contemporary African Art, the Maitland Institute, A4 Arts Foundation and the Norval Foundation – while Amie Soudien explores Cape Town’s burgeoning grassroots arts spaces.
Also in this issue: On the occasion of the first major survey of Asian LGBTQ art in East Asia, at MOCA Taipei, Francesca Tarocco reports on the changing aesthetics and threatened spaces of the queer Sinosphere; design critic Alice Rawsthorn investigates ‘Ore Streams’, the digital recycling project of Studio Formafantasma, which launches at the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, in December; while Steven Nelson profiles US photographer and 2017 Whitney Biennial participant Deana Lawson. Answering our November/December issue questionnaire is artist, dancer and choreographer William Forsythe. Plus, a look at the current wave of new exhibitions by figurative painters in New York.
In our front section: artist Annette Kelm profiles the iconic German photographer Hans Hansen; contributing editor Krzysztof Kościuczuk reflects on the impact of recent changes in Polish government policy on the arts; while Andrew Mellor documents renowned contemporary chamber orchestra, London Sinfonietta, as it celebrates its 50th anniversary.
