Crossing the threshold of 30 issues came as an opportunity to take stock of the years behind us and envision the trajectory ahead. We have chosen 50 monographic stories from Kaleidoscopes past 29 issues, spanning a diversity of media, generations and attitudes towards art. The result is a snapshot of what’s happening in visual culture now, a document of the zeitgeist—and the perfect issue to keep you company during the summer.

In addition, to celebrate this special issue, we commissioned a major visual project to young Los Angeles-based artist Martine Syms. Often described as “conceptual entrepreneur,” Syms combines autobiographical material with historical narratives and tropes from popular culture, examining representations of blackness and its relationship to American vernacular, situation comedy, feminist movements and radical traditions.

This 30+ page cover story runs parallel and serves as a spin-off to the artist’s first US solo museum exhibition a New York’s MoMA, centred around her new feature-length film, Incense Sweaters & Ice. Here, Syms creates a complex visual system featuring a conversation with Yale academic Rizvana Bradley and a constellation of film stills, script excerpts, pop-cultural references, self-preservation rules and found family photographs.
