Alex Da Corte’s cover is followed by a conversation between the artist and Margot Norton, who states that Da Corte’s work is able to combine “disparate references, which are oftentimes incongruous (…), and remix and subtly manipulate them in a way that seems effortless, yet somehow unearths the eerie and absurd qualities that underlie the seemingly familiar.” Charlie Fox instead, invites the reader to re-think Da Corte’s work Daggering, thanks to an unusual multiple-choice ‘Psych Test.’

In the first chapter of his new column “Curator’s Diaries”, Massimiliano Gioni recalls the experience of Jeremy Deller’s Social Parade, initiated as part of Manifesta 5, curated by Gioni himself in the Spanish Basque city of San Sebastian. A personal and intimate narration able to drive us into the folds and the real spirit of Deller’s work, presenting the organic development and the participatory ritual of a joyous parade.

A special commission signed by Simon Castets shapes an exhibition on paper featuring an extraordinary contemporary gallery of 16th and 17th-century self-portraits by women artists. And to continue on self-representations, Vincent Honoré focuses on Martha Wilson’s conceptually based performances, videos, and photo/text compositions, which grapple with constructions and manifestations of feminism and identity.

A visual essay by DIS delves into the contradictions of the economic revolution, while Petra Cortright’s visual text on Paul Chan’s work enters into dialogue with the technological revolution and its impact on society.

The rich series of conversations continues with a brilliant interview with the young American painter Jamian Juliano-Villani by Hans Ulrich Obrist; Daniel Steegmann Mangrané in dialogue with Rivet (Sarah Demeuse and Manuela Moscoso); Jean-Marie Appriou speaking with Rebecca Lamarche-Vadel; Sophia Al-Maria in discussion with Lena Saraj; and Ramaya Tegegne answering Piper Marshall’s 25 questions.

The final HOT! section features an incredible selection of the artists you need to mark on your list: Frank Benson presented by Olivian Cha; Augustas Serapinas by Louisa Elderton; Ola Vasiljeva by Anna Gritz; Kayode Ojo by Francesca Gavin; Nona Inescu by João Laia; KAYA by Francesco Stocchi.

Our iconic The October Issue 2019 is fresh off the press and brings together an incredible array of conversations with cutting edge and pioneering artists, together with recurring and brand new sections, that set the rhythm of an upcoming year filled with new and thrilling explorations.
It is a special issue devoted to 22 women artists—among the most representative of the new generation—which explores the plurality, diversity, and complexity of today’s artistic practices. CURA. 31 is another unmissable issue that continues a previous investigation on the powerful presence and key role of women artists within the contemporary art scene, re-affirming and pointing out the basic rights of equality and pluralism.
