Comes with different Covers. Designer Grace Wales Bonner talks to Rhea Dillon about elevating Blackness within fashion, looking back to her Caribbean heritage in search for beauty, nature, and spirituality. [expand title="more"]The inspirations behind her latest collections, a trilogy exploring Britain and the Caribbean as a diasporic journey, resonate beautifully in an extensive photo story shot by Marc Asekhame. An extensive trend report titled Office Goals addresses the office intended both as a physical space and a powerful symbol of organized labor, providing an opportunity to question contemporary methodologies of working—from automation, neoliberal dystopias and the all-you-can-work freelance economy, to elevated ideas of “everywhere studio.” Within this frame, Alessio Ascari interviews Hans Ulrich Obrist, the epitome of the globetrotting curator, about how the pandemic affected his workflow, driving him to prioritize research and a decentralized approach. The report also comprises an essay by Alessandro Bava, a visual timeline by Jonathan Olivares, and a roundtable of architects and designers with ANY, Paul Cournet, Fredi Fischli & Niels Olsen, Josh Itiola, and Oana Stănescu. Also featured in this issue: Ray Johnson (words by Lucas Mascatello); Nan Goldin (words by Nan Goldin); Valerio Olgiati (interview by Martti Kalliala); Michel Majerus (words by Sarah Johanna Theurer); Rachel Kushner (words by Whitney Mallett); Joshua Citarella (interview by New Models); and Slam Jam Archive (words by Katja Horvat).[/expand]

Comes with different Covers. In 1993, Buffalo Zine’s Arts Editor-at-Large Hans Ulrich Obrist, sat down with artists Christian Boltanski and Bertrand Lazier at Café Select in Paris, where they began discussing an imaginary exhibition. Titled ‘Do It’, the exhibition would be built through sets of instructions given by contemporary artists, and freely available for anyone to interpret.[expand title="more"]A few years later, after this new exhibition model had travelled the globe and the list of contributors had expanded, it became a book, titled ‘Do It’: a public how-to guide for creating art that was part manual, part creative cookbook, and part do-it-yourself kit. Under the restrictions and limitations imposed by the circumstances of the past months, the spirit of the ‘Do It’ project has never felt more relevant. So for this issue of Buffalo, Hans Ulrich asked six artists to give us an instructions each that we have followed in the making of the magazine: 1. Avoid the straight line (Caroline Polachek) 2. Try the same idea in different ways (Shayne Oliver aka Leech) 3. Use only one typeface: Univers Black (Matthew M. Williams) 4. Do it through the lens of your best friend (FKA Twigs) 5. And as if nobody was going to buy the magazine (Miranda July) 6. Tell the truth. And a little lie. (Philippe Parreno)[/expand]

In his debut monograph Mitchell unifies his body of photography and film from his first US solo exhibition at the International Center of Photography (ICP) in New York.

Comes with different Covers. Welcome to the Please Take A Seat issue, where we explore the radical act of sitting as a lens to investigate our fragmented new zeitgeist. In roughly 300 pages, we examine sitting through the polychromatic lens of sexuality, [expand title="more"]racial politics, spirituality, capital punishment, and the American justice system. What does it mean to sit? What does it mean to have a seat at the table? This issue includes a fascinating 35-page, in-depth exploration of the life and work of the inimitable Nan Goldin, and a portfolio of recent photographs, which include candid, personal images of her friend Thora, landscapes, the summer uprisings, and stills from her new film, Sirens. For the past five decades, Goldin has captured the turmoil of love, loss, trauma, dependency, and personal resurrection in her iconic images of friends and lovers with searing, visceral honesty. Her celebrated Ballad Of Sexual Dependency changed the way we experience contemporary photography forever. In an intimate interview, we discuss her life and work during lockdown, making the critics cry, and her advocacy group P.A.I.N., which was founded in response to the opioid epidemic in a quest to take down the Sackler Family for manufacturing and distributing the drug Oxycontin. The issue also features captivating conversations between Miranda July and Isabelle Albuquerque on companionship and July’s new film Kajillionaire, Kembra Pfahler and Hans Ulrich Obrist on the extremism of performance art, Sterling Ruby and Lucinda Devlin on capital punishment, Derek Fordjour and Torkwase Dyson on Black consciousness, Jermaine Francis and Beatriz Maués on sustainable fashion, Brad Phillips and Roe Ethridge on photography, and Gajin Fujita and Gabriella Sanchez on visibility in the diasporan panorama of Los Angeles.[/expand]
