Issue 132
Jun – Aug 2010

Meditations on time and place permeate the Summer issue of frieze. Following R.H. Quaytman‘s recent appearance in the 2010 Whitney Biennial and her solo show at Boston’s ICA, Steven Stern looks at the visual rhyme and resonance in her paintings and their telescopic sense of déjà vu; Brian Dillon explains how Fiona Tan‘s depiction of places as varied as Brighton Pavilion and the Swedish island of Gotland form her explorations of temporal and geographical isolation.

Christy Lange looks to sites of conflict in her exploration of the limitations of photojournalism and the ethics of artistic representation, and, as the UK encounters its first coalition government since 1945, Sam Thorne’s ‘State of the Art’ editorial considers those events that most acutely arrest us in both time and place, elections: ‘As well as providing a highly-strung pause, the oddities of election night might also be a means to focus.’
