Features in this Issue

Focus: Installation

The January issue, for me, is always exciting. It’s the beginning of a new volume year of the magazine, and while we adjust and make improvements throughout the year, this issue is the one where it makes the most sense to implement new ideas and shuffle things just a bit more than usual. —Sherman Hall, Editor.

On the cover: David Hicks' Still Life (vivid), 5 ft. 10 in. (1.8 m.) in height, terra cotta, steel, cable, hardware, 2001.  Hicks' work was on view in January and February 2014 at Cross Mackenzie Gallery in Washington DC. For more information on the show, visit www.crossmackenzie.com.
