Performance artist Marina Abramovic has a household name; that of her onetime partner and collaborator Ulay (né Frank Uwe Laysiepen, who died this year at 76) is more on the margin. A new show at Amsterdam’s Stedelijk hopes to change that. Drawing on many works from its own collection, the museum will break Ulay’s work into four main categories: performance, his research into gender identity, his social and political engagement, and finally, his relationship with Amsterdam. … [Read more...] about Top 10 museum exhibitions across the world to look out for this fall season

What is fascinating to me about the Ryan document is how she wrestles with Reyes, so to speak, trying to reconcile his record of unrelenting malignity—he tried to rape a woman in a church—with his Come-to-Jesus moment that turned the case upside down. He felt impelled to come forward, he said, when he ran into the last imprisoned defendant, Korey Wise, in 2001, when they were both at the Auburn Correctional Facility.
