This month in Artforum:
We can't get enough. We love to rediscover Sturtevant, her replications and recombinant logic. But if her recent lurid, hyperspeed videos and theatrical environments seem unprecedented, they actually echo her little-known engagement with performance in the 1960s. On the eve of the artist's new survey show at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Artforum asked contributing editor Bruce Hainley to unearth her long-obscured work with live action, choreography, and Happenings-revealing a tale of missed encounters, epistolary exchanges, kinetic reenactments, and dances of dances, and giving us that strange Sturtevant thrill-all over again.
