ARTPIL Profiles of the Arts
ARTPIL / Prescription .036
Springtime needed you. -Rilke

 

Spring is upon us, with no shortage in the rebirth of wonders:

Art of Irony: The young alt-right bloggers turned away at the UK border; their anti-immigrant beliefs like a fashion accessory fail.

Art of Tragedy: The U.S. Education Director with brain melt during a national interview; the same fondu as throughout the confirmation hearings.

Art of Absurdity: The Rassemblement of France’s National Front rebranding harks back to their true ancestry; trying to rise above the reproach of being ignorant of history.

But spring is upon us. Here is the review of the week in the other arts.

 

Joel Meyerowitz

Joel Meyerowitz. Out Of The Darkness

This exhibition includes a hundred photographs by the great documentary photographer and pioneer of the use of color Joel Meyerowitz, made during his stay in Spain in the sixties: an unknown body of work that shows a country in transformation. Opens tomorrow, March 14, 2018 running through January 20, 2019 at Bombas Gens.

 

Vanessa Beecroft / Abstract Memories

International Women’s Day / 2018

Occurring once a year like a rare solar eclipse of the male ego, each 8th of March celebrates International Women’s Day, a tradition started over a hundred years ago and still a long way to go. ARTPIL in our impromptu Prescription .035 honored the women who have created, engaged, and inspired, including Melissa BreyerRineke DijkstraMaria Luigia GioffrèCarolee SchneemannAlba DeangelisOrnella MazzolaNewsha TavakolianEkaterina AnchevskayaVanessa BeecroftEsther Shalev-GerzLaure d’Utruy, and Sally Mann, among others.

 

Rinko Kawauchi

Nothing Stable under Heaven

Taking its title from James Baldwin’s essay on the creative process, this exhibition reflects on the contested past, the turbulent present, and the unpredictable future, examining how individual and collective voices can be heard in an uncertain world. Through September 16, 2018 at SFMOMA / San Francisco Museum Of Modern Art.

 

Taryn Simon

Shouting Is Under Calling / Taryn Simon

The work of Taryn Simon results from rigorous research guided by an interest in systems of categorization and the precarious nature of survival. A multidisciplinary artist who has worked in photography, text, film, sculpture, and performance, Simon turns our attention to the margins of power, where control, disruption, and the contours of its constructedness become visible. Through June 17, 2018 at Kunstmuseum Luzern.

 

Nicolas Portnoï

Fragment / Graine de Photographe

This exhibition which coincides with the publication of Fragment Magazine Volume 2 aims to present a vision of Paris in the great tradition of street photography, as well as the personal universe of each member of the collective Fragment whose members include Sylvain Biard and Marco Giusfredi, among seven others. Opening March 15, running through April 22, 2018 at Graine de Photographe, Paris.

 

Kishio Suga

Kishio Suga / Blum & Poe

This exhibit by Kishio Suga brings wood, branches, metal, rope, wire, and various other materials into incongruous arrangements in order to reveal the reality of mono (things/materials), and the jōkyō (situation). On view at Blum & Poe through April 14, 2018.
