• William Anastasi – ‘Sound Works, 1963-2013’ Artforum pick

    A recorder plays itself recording an otherwise silent environment (Microphone, 1963) while the murmur of industrial objects—a radiator, a deflated tire, a pneumatic drill—buzz conspicuously from attached speakers (Sound Objects, 1963–65).

  • “Gilt”-Pleasure: Jeff Koons Interview/访谈

  • A Different Kind of Order: The ICP Triennial

    http://artforum.com/archive/id=41590 07.19.13   “A Different Kind of Order,” the Fourth ICP Triennial, finds itself in a much digitized and image-overloaded world—a state more intensely felt than in any previous installments and made all the more apparent by the show’s default medium specificity. Recognizing the futility of deploying any overarching theory, the curatorial team in this…
