WEBEXCLUSIVE INCONVERSATION

RAQIB SHAW with Allie Biswas

Art

Raqib Shaw’s narrative-fueled fantastical landscapes draw upon his homeland of Kashmir, making reference to issues of memory, history, and identity. The painter’s sources are far-reaching, ranging from his own studio in South London to ancient mythology and Hindu iconography.

ADAM PENDLETON with Allie Biswas

Art

Words are essential in Adam Pendleton’s art. The artist’s engagement with experimental prose and poetry over the past ten years, along with his cross-referencing of visual and social histories, has made space for new types of language within conceptual art.

INCONVERSATION

CARMEN HERRERA with Laila Pedro

INCONVERSATION

CHRISTO with Amei Wallach

Art

The Floating Piers, the first project Christo has completed solo since the 2009 death of Jeanne-Claude, was, as usual, a sensation. For sixteen days, from June 18 through July 3 this summer, news from The Floating Piers overwhelmed the Italian airwaves and blogosphere, and crowds grew exponentially.

INCONVERSATION

ARIANE LOPEZ-HUICI with Carter Ratcliff

Art

Ariane Lopez-Huici takes many of her photographs in the studio, yet it wouldn’t be quite right to call her a studio photographer. Her oeuvre includes photographs taken on trips to Mali with her husband, the sculptor Alain Kirili, and a new series of images that emerged from their recent trip to Angkor Wat, in Cambodia.
