the week in the arts

 

Well into summer now and much happening in the world, as always. Stay with us as we approach the center of the calendar and round out our first year. Here is our look back on the week in the arts.

 

Jasmina Cibic / The Pavilion

Unsettlement

Unsettlement is conceived as both a contemporary condition – in which our claim to the spaces we occupy is increasingly precarious – and a strategy for artistic, social and political engagement. On view through July 7, 2018 at MUMA Monash University Museum of Art.

 

John Akomfrah, Expeditions One: Signs of Empire / Smoking Dogs Films

John Akomfrah / Signs of Empire

John Akomfrah’s moving image works have offered some of the most rigorous and expansive reflections on the culture of the black diaspora, pioneering the injection of black narratives into popular media. At New Museum through September 2, 2018.

 

Shirana Shahbazi

Shirana Shahbazi at Kunsthaus Hamburg

Shirana Shahbazi embraces two fundamental attributes that make the photographic image fascinating: its precision in the representation of reality as well as its capacity of capturing the ephemeral moment.

Thomas Lehnerer

“I have a small sheet of paper, a piece of canvas or a lump of wax… Initially, my mind is focused on just one question, the question of beginning. How does an image come about?” –Thomas Lehnerer. On view through September 2, 2018 at Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein.

 

Geert Goiris

Melancholia

Artists including Etel Adnan, Marlene Dumas, Alberto Giacometti, Mimmo Jodice, and Kiki Smith among others explore issues such as nostalgia for the depiction of solitude, absence, and the passing time. On view at Fondation Boghossian through August 19, 2018.
