Modern Matter’s fourth issue, Made In USA, is a collaboration with London’s ICA gallery, created on the eve of a major retrospective by the New York-based art collective, the Bernadette Corporation (making it the first independent magazine to act as an ICA partner). Its cover star is the iconic American actress, Chloë Sevigny; the issue’s content is themed, in part, around the dual ideals of Art and America, and includes an exploration of the New York art scene.
Sevigny has collaborated with both the Bernadette Corporation and with the issue’s cover photographer Mark Borthwick for a number of years, notably starring in the Corporation’s film Get Rid of Yourself, and being shot by Borthwick for several iconic magazine spreads in the mid-nineties. In this exclusive shoot, those original – and memorable – images are introduced into a visual conversation with new material created for Modern Matter: the result is an intimate exploration of collective, dialogue and creative collaboration.
Made In USA also contains:
A re-staging of the archives of the photographer MARK BORTHWICK, featuring long-term collaborators CHLOE SEVIGNY, RITA ACKERMANN and Gang Gang Dance’s LIZZI BOUGATSOS.

True to its title, the exhibition “Abstract Resistance” considers the metaphor of “resistance” as a complex political and compositional force defining art of the past half century.
Abstract Resistance (an exhibition held at the Walker Art Centre, Minneapolis, in 2010) proposes an alternative framework for aesthetically inventive, ethically engaged, and politically defiant art. The exhibition, drawn mostly from the Walker’s collection, highlights works in assemblage, collage, and photomontage by Francis Bacon, Lynda Benglis, Anthony Caro, Sarah Charlesworth, Bruce Conner, Willem de Kooning, Lucio Fontana, Hollis Frampton, Philip Guston, Rachel Harrison, Hirschhorn, Ellsworth Kelly, Paul McCarthy, Robert Motherwell, Bruce Nauman, Cady Noland, Charles Ray, Gedi Sibony, Kara Walker, Andro Wekua, and Cathy Wilkes.To accompany the exhibition, the Walker published this collection of essays by exhibition curator Yasmil Raymond, art historian Simon Baier, and philosopher Marcus Steinweg as well as artist statements by Thomas Hirschhorn, Gedi Sibony, and Cathy Wilkes.
