ART PAPERS 31.01 - Jan/Feb 2007
This issue starts with the essay Art Scene on the Move: the Changing Tides of San Francisco, where David Spalding caught up with two of the city's much noticed new arrivals. With so many artists and curators aligning themselves with academic institutions, one can't help but to wonder if this is a strategic advance or a retreat. Jennie Klein explores the strategies of visual resistance at play in Skin, Text, Corporeality: Mary Beth Heffernan's Photography + Installations and Nuno Crespo examines Words, Images, Paradoxes: João Louro's Recent Work.
The editor's picks of notable shows in this issue are Cryptozoology: Out of Time Place Scale, reviewed by Gregory Sholette, Charles Gaines + Edgar Arceneaux, reviewed by Aram Moshayedi and Try Again. Fail Again. Fail Better: Momentum 2006, reviewed by Marilu Knode.
