NONE / NOT IN STOCK
20 years of unparalleled exploration and discussion of important international contemporary artists continue in Parkett No. 74, which features collaborations by Bernard Frize, Katharina Grosse and Richard Serra. Frize's most recent paintings are created by teams of performers following intricate scores for the intertwining and knotting of ribbons of color, to dazzling effect. Grosse has also quietly been furthering the sort of formalism thought to have been exhausted by Abstract Expressionist and Color Field painting in the 1960s and 1970s: she takes to exhibition spaces with spray guns and goggles, jetting paint directly onto interior architectural elements to install kaleidoscopic dreamscapes of color-fueled intuition. Serra has recently put in a long-term installation at the Guggenheim Bilbao, and made an enigmatic work in stone on a remote Icelandic island. The issue includes texts on Serra by Hal Foster, Kate Nesin, Theodora Vischer and Kenneth Baker, and similarly bountiful files on Frize and Grosse, with work from writers including Jordan Kantor, Gregory Volk, Paul Mattick, and Hans Ulrich Obrist. Among the issue's freestanding pieces, Lytle Shaw writes on Jockum Nordstr m; Louise Neri on Trisha Brown and Lawrence Rinder on the San Francisco based "Mission School." Carsten Nicolai provides the spine design.
