Here we are again, this time, rounding out our sixth year with 4,000 pages of Articles, Profiles, and Announcements in our growing archive and over 3.5 million visits strong. A very exciting journey it has been, indeed. With our sixth year anniversary Prescription, we continue to move forward.

From its conception, Artpil strove to profile artists, museums and galleries, along with other entities in the art world, and put forth articles and interviews, reviews and exhibition guides, as well as general musings related to all that is modern and contemporary in the world of art. We have succeeded in building a network of individuals and organizations helping to deliver our mission. We have since covered some remarkable subjects.

. . .

We have you to thank, each and every one of you, for being here with us as we move forward. Welcome to your world.

Create. Engage. Inspire.

    In 1978 Grey Crawford created a body of colour photographic work that was so radical in its aesthetic and technique that few people to this day understand how it was made. Chroma documents late 70s Los Angeles in a period of radical urban transformation. Scenes of vernacular architecture, demolition sites and everyday places are contrasted with graphic forms that float on the surface and sit within the image. (more…)

  • Mara Palena: Oikeiôsis
    Publication
    Witty Books
    International

    The knowledge of one’s inner self as the sole tool for self-fulfillment, for stoically embracing the human condition in all its turmoils – that is what ancient Greeks used to call Oikeiôsis. The same word was chosen by Mara Palena to call a project that unfolds over the duration of existence. The analog images shot by the artist from her childhood to today do not follow any external precept. (more…)

Omo Nigeria is her first book and shows the results of her teachings and the portrait sessions: “These are the school portraits that were never taken of me; these were the classmates that I never had.” (more…)
