Floating "lonely as a cloud," the bride on our May cover is less romantic heroine than intrepid explorer—like her creator, Australian artist Rosemary Laing, whose newest, previously unpublished work is featured here. Abigail Solomon-Godeau insightfully discusses Laing's extraordinary ability to encompass the psychological, historical, and political tensions of Australia's outback in her disquieting images of "unnatural disasters in the Australian landscape."

ELLIOTT ERWITT FLIP-O-RAMA

Lesley A. Martin
The manifesto-style title of Elliott Erwitt Flip-O-Rama: Italia—18 Flip-books About Italians in Movement belies the waggishness of this immensely charming and cleverly produced boxed set of eighteen miniature flip-books. That's not to say the title is undeserved—within the gift-box-like package, Magnum-veteran Elliott Erwitt and his collaborators at Design Method of Operation (de.MO) have managed to enfold the essence of Italy.

THE LAST PICTURE SHOW: ARTISTS USING PHOTOGRAPHY, 1960-1982

Catherine Liu
The docent and entourage are usually inescapable at the Walker Art Center; this was especially true at the exhibition "The Last Picture Show: Artists Using Photography, 1960-1982." It was in fact almost impossible to turn off the running sound-track of explanations, which ranged from anecdotal to descriptive, in order to take in the complexity of this exhibition.

Water, water everywhere—to complement the already aqueous blockbuster "Manet and the Sea" exhibition held elsewhere in the museum, David Travis, Director of the Art Institute of Chicago's Department of Photography, has organized "Regarding Seas and Skies: Photographic Seascapes by Gustave Le Gray, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and DoDo Jin Ming."

SOPHIE CALLE M'AS-TU VUE

Lauren Sedofsky
Nothing can quite efface the sleuthing and stalking—camera in hand, notebook at the ready—with which Sophie Calle gained her initial notoriety, not even a major retrospective at the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Eliding the stuntlike machinations of her early projects Venetian Suite (1980), Hotel (1981), and Address Book (1983), this exhibition lays bare Calle's subsequent twenty-year effort to impose a distinctly autobiographical aura on artistic self-exploitation.

ROBOT DREAMS
[no value]

[no value]
David Levi Strauss
The dream was anything but simple. Still, as I was growing up in the 1950s and '60s, the ideal of fully functioning robot helpers and companions seemed imminently realizable. I associated this new world of mechanical assistants with my grandfather's blacksmith shop, cluttered with his many inventions in various stages of becoming or decay.

"What are you after? Oil?" Bernardo Azevedo, a bearded, skinny Angolan, blocks our way down to the beach. It takes a lot of convincing for him to let us pass, but once on the beach, he gets two men to dig around his feet, and after a couple of stabs with a shovel the sand turns black.

The telegraph, in Elaine Reichek's view, marked the beginning of the global age, as the first medium of instant long-distance communication. Today, in the time of the computer, it is obsolete: it ushered the global in, but its protégé has shoved it aside.

We are in a nice suburban house in a nice suburban neighborhood with a nice hostess, Lynn, a forty-six-year-old woman who is putting salsa and chips out, lighting candles, arranging flowers, and doing all the things hostesses do as they prepare for an evening with friends.

Begin with a burned piece of wood, disfigured by what consumed it, blackened by light, entirely unique, entirely common, a mass of pure carbon. Fact about carbon: it conducts electricity. Now to Brooklyn, and not the best part: west of the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, across the street from a ramshackle truck garage, inside a darkened space hung with monumental photographs.

There are clear parallels between the histories of America's colonization and Australia's. So too are there parallels to the histories of Canada, of Southern Africa, and of all the other "new" worlds conquered by white Europeans. Extremities of climate, the daunting vastness of the land, its resistance to newcomers, its deceptive (that is, fantasized) emptiness, its very intransigence to European notions of civilization, agriculture, and domesticity—all these features shaped the psyches of the settlers in these lands.

His death laid me flat for almost a year. Now, many deaths later, I am as perplexed by the experience as ever. Where did all of that him-ness go? All that knowledge, the accretion of experiences from a remarkable life, the suffering—his and others'—he had borne, the beauty, life's own rapturous visions?

Perhaps most importantly, discussion of the complex issues surrounding HIV/AIDS has to be brought into the spotlight. Politicians, public health officials, community leaders, economists, academics, priests, pastors, rabbis, imams, and preachers in African traditional beliefs all need to be brought into partnership on the issue of openness and compassion.

Watching him, I filled in the blanks myself. Maybe he was, for the first time, thinking what a sham this success nonsense was. Maybe he was asking himself if this was all there was. Where was the joy that's supposed to come with fame and money?
