ART PAPERS 11.01 - Jan/Feb 1987 - SOLD OUT
The tenth anniversary of ART PAPERS begat this historically (and intellectually) noteworthy "BEST OF" issue, featuring what were considered to be the most important and exciting pieces published in the magazine between 1977 and 1987.
The self-reflective Editors' Note (heed the plural) in the beginning of this issue is a fascinating peek into how early ideals of ART PAPERS'—increasing awareness of The South's rich art scenes, providing readers with an education in critical theory one "would have to pay a university thousands of dollars to acquire"—were conceived, evolved, and continue to remain central to ART PAPERS' ethos.
Two of the more notable pieces in this issue are: A (somewhat contentious) 1978 conversation between Laurie Anderson and John Turturro, wherein they discuss the relative merits of individualism vs. involvement in artistic "movements," the difficulties of authentic communication, modern preoccupation with documentation, and attempting to draw viewers' attention to the materiality of their art; and a hefty, heady, interview that Jerry Cullum conducted with the (in)famous father of Deconstruction, Jacques Derrida.
