Pick of the Week

To mark our 100th issue (Sept/Oct), we map the evolution of the art world by identifying five reoccurring terms, citing the first time they appear and demonstrating how their meanings have evolved over two decades. From among several hundreds of terms, we’ve honed in on: archive, intervention, ecosystem, censorship and revival.

Set Adrift: Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan

In late August, Alfredo Aquilizan was standing in the middle of the Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation (SCAF) gallery in Sydney, surrounded by what looked like a miniature city after a hurricane had swept through. Small model houses made from cardboard boxes were scattered haphazardly across the concrete floor. Some had been crushed and discarded; others were piled into broken and twisted heaps, their tiny picket fences—made from kebab sticks—strewn everywhere. A few houses appeared to have survived the storm intact. Alfredo, with detectable melancholy, surveyed the devastation, snapping away with his Leica camera, recording the wreckage.
