In the May issue, ArtReview looks to contemporary artists who intervene in the past to try and make sense of an out-of-control present. Frida Orupabo, nominated for the 2023 Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize, mines images sourced from colonial archives, film, fashion and family albums to create collages that carve representation and empowerment from stereotype, writes Fi Churchman. In a highly personal take on Isaac Julien, Prince Shakur traces the ways in which the British artist’s work has empowered those ‘who have come after him’. And in her feature on Sarah Pierce, Judith Wilkinson writes about the multimedia artist’s current retrospective at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin, focusing on the performances that form a significant part of the artist’s oeuvre. Chris Fite-Wassilak interviews Kahlil Robert Irving ahead of his exhibition Archaeology of the Present, at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, in which Irving reflects on ambivalence, collage and loss.
