Reviewing Artforum’s Advertisements: April 2012

  • April has arrived, and with it a fine new issue of Artforum has landed in our mailbox. There’s plenty to love: an artist portfolio of photographs by Jean-Luc Moulène, a top-ten list from Hank Willis Thomas and an essay on the late Helen Frankenthaler by Anne M. Wagner, who manages to bring Charline von Heyl into the conversation. But we are here, as we are every month, to talk about the ads. Let’s get to it! –Andrew Russeth
