Issue 111
Nov - Dec 2007

In the Nov / Dec issue of frieze, Tom Morton examines the sculptures and installations of Charles Ray, whose new work continues to explore themes of space, objecthood and mimesis.

Benjamin Weissman reflects on the humorous, psychological, abstract pictures of Christopher Wool.

Sam Thorne considers the seductively idiosyncratic practice of Michael Fullerton, and Melissa Gronlund discusses Lucy Skaer’s meditations on senselessness and beauty in drawings, films and sculptures.

Peter Eleey looks back at the Artist Placement Group’s strategy of incorporating art into the world of business, whilst Bert Rebhandl is impressed by a new era of Romanian filmmaking.
