Federico León

by Richard Maxwell

Federico León's recent Las multitudes was staged last year in Argentina. For Richard Maxwell, the playwright-director's production is a "brokenhearted humanity tale." A heroic one, at that, with 120 actors.

Genesis BREYER P-ORRIDGE and Verne Dawson

Opposites attract—one looks to the past; the other looks to the future. One paints; the other everything but. A dialog of overlapping engagements beween Dawson and Genesis BREYER P-ORRIDGE.

Stanley Whitney

by David Reed

Whitney's answer to painting's "hard times," was composing with color as a jazz musician plays with themes and variations. Whitney's show Other Colors I Forget opens at Team Gallery on April 11.

Stan Allen

by Nader Tehrani

Stan Allen's seminal essay, "Field Conditions," written almost 15 years ago, still resonates among architects. He confers with Nader Tehrani on landscape urbanism as well as building and teaching "from a position of uncertainty."

Enrique Vila-Matas's characters include James Joyce, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Paul Auster, and even Enrique Vila-Matas. The Catalan author talks with Meruane about his distinct method of interlacing reading, writing, fact, and fiction.

Rachel Kushner's latest novel, The Flamethrowers, is out now. Kunzru focuses on the novel's relationship to the '70s art world and Italian politics during the time of the Red Brigades.

Coleen Fitzgibbon

by P. Adams Sitney

In the early '70s, Fitzgibbon made a series of radical films and then put them aside. P. Adams Sitney begins to unravel the story behind Fitzgibbon's early, seductive flicker films to her latest iPhone movies.

Aki Onda

by Michael Snow

Aki Onda's body of work is an investigation of sound's place in the tactility and visuality of a three-dimensional world. Watch an excerpt from a performance by Onda and filmmaker Paul Clipson.

Halsey Rodman

by Ulrike Müller

Halsey Rodman's upcoming installation inverts its shape once it changes venues. This act of transformation emphasizes the space and identity of its viewership, destabilizing the notion of perception.

Katrín Sigurdardóttir

by Eva Heisler

Katrín Sigurdardóttir's sculptures and installations merge embodied experiences of place with conceptual constructions of space. She reflects with poet Eva Heisler on the early memories that inspire her work.
