Review of the week

 

Summer is here. No shortage of festivals gearing up to draw the big crowds. We launch this past week’s review with the Night of Museums to kick things off. Here is the week in review.

 

Latifa Echakhch / MACBA

Night of Museums

Several thousand museums opened their doors earlier this week in 30 countries throughout Europe for the 14th Edition of European Night of Museums, coinciding with The Year of European Culture & Heritage. Among the many participants included MAXXI in Rome, Centre Pompidou in Paris, Gallery of Matica Srpska in Novi Sad, Serbia, MACBA in Barcelona, and The Madre in Naples.

 

Mimmo Jodice

Mimmo Jodice / The Transformations of Vision

As a key figure in the history of photography, Mimmo Jodice’s work is characterized by an extraordinary emotionality and energy, organically combining contemporary ideas with classical stylistics. Through July 1, 2018 at MAMM / Multimedia Art Museum, Moscow.

 

Peter van Agtmael

W. Eugene Smith Photography Grant

Established in 1978, the W. Eugene Smith Grant in Humanistic Photography is presented annually to a photographer whose past work and proposed project follow the tradition of dedicated compassion. Previous recipients have included Daniel Castro Garcia (2017), Peter van Agtmael (2012), Letizia Battaglia (1985), and Sebastião Salgado (1982) among many others. Deadline May 31, 2018.

 

Jane Freilicher

Jane Freilicher / ’50s New York

Painted within various studios in lower Manhattan, the works Jane Freilicher are evocative of a downtown milieu that has since come to represent the period’s golden age of spirited, improvisational artistic freedom. Through Jun 9, 2018 at Paul Kasmin Gallery.

 

Alex Prager

Aperture 231

The summer issue of Aperture magazine considers the influence of photography on leading filmmakers, and the role of cinema in the works of artists. Featuring Sofia Coppola, Gus Van Sant, Alex Prager, Alain Resnais, and others. Available now for pre-order.

 

Heimo Zobernig

Heimo Zobernig / Galerie Meyer Kainer

A break with style and subject. Heimo Zobernig’s purely technical, pictorial approach, which seeks to avoid any indication of the intimate and subjective, has a moral component. An aesthetic-political view. On view at Galerie Meyer Kainer through May 30, 2018.
