Gagosian Quarterly: Fall 2020 Issue
The Fall 2020 issue of Gagosian Quarterly features a cover image from Theaster Gates’s Black Image Corporation project, which grew out of his engagement with the archives and legacy of the Johnson Publishing Company. The historic photograph of the crowd at the public funeral of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., in April 1968 was taken by Moneta Sleet, Jr., the first African American to win the Pulitzer Prize for journalism, who was also known for his high-fashion photography.
This issue includes a new installment of the Building a Legacy series, discussing with the board of the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation its decision to establish a multiyear initiative providing $5 million in COVID-19 relief for artists and arts professionals. Titus Kaphar and novelist Tochi Onyebuchi contribute a poetic rumination on Kaphar’s From a Tropical Space series. Cate Blanchett interviews Gregory Crewdson about his new body of work, and painter Louise Bonnet catches up with her friend Miranda July on their most recent endeavors. In celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the Kitchen, New York, Laurie Anderson, Charles Atlas, Wade Guyton, Jacqueline Humphries, Joan Jonas, Ralph Lemon, and Anicka Yi relay their memories of this trailblazing institution.
