Border Crossings Issue No. 147

Border Crossings
Contemporary Art

The Border Crossings Painting issue is the largest and most anticipated issue of the year. This issue looks primarily at artists who explore the elasticity and complexity of paint as a medium.

Border Crossings interviews South African, Amsterdam-based artist Marlene Dumas. Dumas is largely recognized as one of the most influential painters working today. She has exhibited internationally for over the past four decades. Dumas works investigates the complexities of identity and power. Working with gestural brush strokes and thin washes of paint, her works have a distinctly transparent appearance that emphasizes their materiality and intimate subject matter.

David Lynch is a contemporary American artist and filmmaker. In this issue he discusses his unique voice as a painter and the struggle “to keep chasing the thing[s] [he] hasn’t found.” His works are visceral and dark, a product of what he calls the mind’s “beautiful pitch-darkness.” His various art practices move in the shadows of this ever present sub-current.

This issue features interviews with three unique artists: London-based artist, Sky Glabush; American painter and gallery owner Laura Owens; and German born, Winnipeg-based painter and educator, Holger Kalberg.

In the articles section, John Kissick takes an in-depth look at the recent sculptural survey at the New York Metropolitan Museum’s Met Breuer in Like Life: Colouring the Body of Sculpture; Mariianne Mays Wiebe discusses the work of Laure Prouvost in Waiting for Prouvost: Close Encounters of a Poetic Kind; and Stephen Horne discusses painting and the personal in The Personality of Abstraction.

Also in this issue, Erica Mendritzki discusses the history and politics of migration in Mothering Resistance: Reflections from the Borders of Art; and we feature three poems (inspired by the work of Agnes Martin) by Sylvia Legris.

The Crossovers include reviews on Joan Mitchell and Jean-Paul Riopelle, Tim Zuck, Donigan Cumming, Yoko Ono, Dan Brault, Catherine Telford-Keogh, Beau Dick, Karla Black, Dagmara Genda, Benjamin Klein, Vikky Alexander, book reviews on Men and Apparitions by Lynne Tillman, and Oscar Cahén edited by Rosemary Shipton and Marianne Gerlinger, a review of The 10th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art and “What Flies Above” exhibited at Gallery 1C03 in Winnipeg + more…
