Spike’s spring issue tackles the wide, and wild, world of sports. Hear why two gallerists, Yvonne Quirmbach and Monika Sprüth, can’t be bothered to pick up their phones on football night, and how the head gardener at Wimbledon keeps the storied lawns a beautiful green. Anne Imhof talks to us about how to bend the rules, while ex-basketballer and writer JJ Bola clues into the cultures of masculinity in sport. There’s a postcard from hard-luck Buffalo, and a special section of reports on drone racing, doping, sportswear fetish, public pools, and majestic horses. Artist’s Favourites from Sharon Lockhart, Elfriede Jelinek’s Sports Play, tennis and skate wear crossovers, and some Eurythmics keep the sporty train a runnin’. With features on David Hammons’ basketball works, Ligia Lewis’ athletic choreography, Matthew Barney’s Drawing Restraint, and Rineke Dijkstra’s videos of young gymnasts, and reviews from Bangkok to Vienna to Brazil.
