ARTPIL / Prescription .004
Slow Suspension

 

So this thing is really happening. Now well into our third week and growing steadily despite the slow suspension of summer. Welcome to the .004th edition of Prescriptions. Here is our review of the week in the arts.

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.

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.

  • popular
    Oct 5, 2023 – Apr 14, 2024
    Institut Valencià d’Art Modern / IVAM
    Valencia, Spain

    What is “popular”? Popular is not fame or celebrity. Popular is not the products of mass culture. Popular is not pop. Popular is not the art of the people, nor the identity of the country, nor the symbols of the nation. The popular is not the product of the proletariat or the craftsmanship of the working classes. The popular is not folklore. The popular is not clichés or tourist souvenirs.The popular is not visual candy, one-euro merchandise, advertising royalties. Popular is somewhere in-between all of that (more…)

The installations, videos, sculptures and sound works of Lydia Ourahmane address contemporary issues such as migration, colonialism and geopolitics. (more…)

The exhibition takes inspiration from the famous square in New York, changing its name to Time Square, where the words “time” and “square” collide and recompose new meanings. The American square is the clear symbol of aggressive modernity and humanity in transformation. (more…)
