In the summer issue of frieze, Travis Diehl profiles artist Gary Simmons to coincide with major shows in London and Chicago. Plus, ahead of biennial appearances in Liverpool and São Paulo, artist Torkwase Dyson is in discussion with writer Christina Sharpe.
In anticipation of Senga Nengudi’s forthcoming book, frieze shares a selection of notes, scribbles, statements and poems from the artist and her alter ego. In ‘1,500 Words’, poet Simone White considers Carrie Mae Weems’s Mirror, Mirror (1987–88). Plus, frieze profiles four galleries and project spaces across Ghana, from Tamale in the north to the capital of Accra, that support artists producing and exhibiting innovative work: Gallery 1957, Nubuke Foundation, Nuku Studio and Savannah Centre for Contemporary Art.
