Honoring the fiftieth anniversary of New York magazine last fall, fifty prominent New York-based artists are working with the publication to create a series of commemorative covers. The first eight designs were announced last week, including “PRUMP/TUTIN” by Barbara Kruger. The covers will be shown around New York as a public art exhibition, on view in a variety of venues across all five boroughs, complete with free prints for the first viewers to arrive.
Also this week:
- Laurie Anderson and Kronos Quartet released a new video from their forthcoming album, Landfall, inspired by Anderson’s experience of Hurricane Sandy.
- William Wegman donated 174 short videos to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, encompassing all of the artist’s video works created between 1970 and 1999.
- Finally, Lorde added an excerpt from Jenny Holzer’s 1977 Inflammatory Essays to her Grammys outfit last night as a form of protest. Lorde had considered not attending the awards because she wasn’t given the opportunity to perform solo like the other male nominees in her category for Album of the Year.

The structure of the Art21 Magazine is changing in 2018 and will be unveiled in the coming weeks. While I will no longer be writing content for the online magazine's themed issues, I will be contributing to the "This Week in Art" column for the next few months.
You can read the first weekly roundup here.
The feature story this week is the announcement of the 2018 United States Artists Fellows. The United States Artists, a Chicago-based foundation devoted to supporting the arts across nine disciplines, has named Dread Scott, Abigail DeVille and Pepón Osorio among the 45 artists and collectives comprising the 2018 fellows. A $50,000 grant accompanies the fellowship, which recognizes contributions to fields such as craft, dance, writing, and the visual arts, among others.
