ARTPIL / Prescription .007
total eclipse of the art

 

Americans prepare for today’s total solar eclipse whose shadow’s path will eerily trace the Union-Confederate fault line (almost) after a week of heightened racial tension in cities across the nation. Barcelona suffered a terrorist attack, followed by labor protests which shut down 8 of the leading art institutions including MACBA and the Historical Archive. Strange Days…. Welcome to the .007th edition of Prescriptions. Here is our review of the week in the arts.
