ARTPIL Profiles of the Arts

The Week in Review

 

So this thing is really happening. Now well into our third week and growing steadily despite the slow suspension of summer. Here again, our backward gaze on some of the recent highlights of the past week:

Luis Valtuena Prize / 21st Edition

For the 21st consecutive year, Médicos del Mundo / Doctors of the World proposes the Luis Valtueña International Humanitarian Photography Competition. A great opportunity for photographers. Keep in mind the theme is socially broader than the title would suggest, as seen by the photo above by Javier Guijarro (detail) from their archives of past winners and finalists. ARTPIL will publish the winning series.

A very interesting artist & painter from the Bronx – a very interesting individual with an inspired profile and a compelling statement. Stand and Deliver.

Hanne Darboven’s Kulturgeschichte 1880–1983

Dia Center for the Arts, one of my favorite nooks in New York City (and perhaps a greater favorite outside the city in Beacon) has this impressive installation of Hanne Darboven’s epic work. Ends tomorrow, July 29th, so don’t miss it if you’re in the neighborhood.

Michael E. Smith at S.M.A.K.

More than just found objects, eleven sculptural works / installations of Michael E. Smith currently on view at Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst (S.M.A.K.) / Society for the Museum of Contemporary Art in Ghent, Belgium, through October 1 , 2017.

Todd Haynes’s Wonderstruck

Todd Haynes once again asserts his re-entry into the big screen to feature his film Wonderstruck as the center piece for the 55th New York Film Festival at the Film Society of Lincoln Center. Festival dates are September 28 – October 15, 2017.

Nairy Baghramian: Deformation Professionnelle

The Walker Art Center, where I actually had my beginnings, will open Nairy Baghramian’s first international museum presentation, September 7, 2017–February 4, 2018. Seems fitting with Déformation Professionnelle loosely translating as Occupational Hazard.

Some other notables include Sabrina Caramanico’s haunting and beautiful images, Stefano Pia’s profile featuring his ambitious Zero Kilometers project, and Steven Holl with his impressive range of architectural works in the world of museums and performance spaces.
