This month’s issue of Artforum is stellar. Focusing on art in Los Angeles, we get David E. James on the city’s alternative cinema, Linda Norden on the late Minimalist John McCracken and a portfolio of drawings from Raymond Pettibon. An image of a performance by L.A.’s Asco collective—Decoy Gang War Victim (1974)—is on the cover, and there is a special project by Chris Burden.
We could go on. But we are here, at the moment, for the ads. There are some strong ones this month. Here are our favorites.
