It was hard to crack the cover of Artforum this month. Just look at that supremely weird 1959 Claes Oldenburg sculpture on the cover, called Street Head I (“Big Head,” “Gong”). It’s made of chicken wire, newspaper, glue and paint, and is roughly five feet across. We would happily stare at it all day long.
As we do each month, we have carefully evaluated the magazine’s advertisements, weighing their merits, debating them in the office. We present our favorites in the slide show at left.
