ArtReview’s September issue is out now, with a focus on modes of communication and language. Featured this month: South African artist Dineo Seshee Bopape talks about the dangers and benefits of becoming lost in a narrative and getting spoon-fed information that has been edited by someone else; Glenn Ligon’s text-based paintings separate the visual and literal meaning of words; British artist Sue Tompkins explores the ‘endless affective possibilities of verbalisation’ in music, performance art and painting, and her newfound TikTok fanbase; and Chinese painter Liu Ye seeks a universal visual language. Also in this issue are reviews of artists including Simon Fujiwara, Ja’Tovia Gary, Spencer Finch, Bruce Nauman, Maurizio Cattelan and Jade Montserrat. Plus the regular mix of opinion, book reviews and back-page musings to keep you content throughout September.
