This month’s issue of Artforum is superb, beginning with the very first piece, a series of moving remembrances of Michael Asher by Benjamin H. D. Buchloh, Anne Rorimer and John Baldessari. Also here: Sergei Tcherepnin and Gela Patashuri discuss their project for the Georgian Pavilion at the 2013 Venice Biennale, Maria Antonella Pelizzari tackles the work of the late Italian photographer Luigi Ghirri (who nabs this month’s cover), and Melissa Anderson considers the work of Jacques Demy. Great stuff. We’re here right now for the ads, though. It was a solid, though not altogether stellar, month in that department. In the slide show at left, our favorites.
