ARTPIL Profiles of the Arts
ARTPIL / Prescription .016
Amid the fallout

 

Summer is all but forgotten. Catalan regional parliament declares independence while Spain says no; Brexit is still limping towards the door that won’t open, Nicaragua signs on to the Paris Agreement leaving the U.S. alone with Syria as the only two countries in the world left out… But we are here to talk about art.

 

Rineke Dijkstra

The One and The Many / Rineke Dijkstra

A true master of modern portraiture, Dutch artist Rineke Dijkstra’s large photographs and videos are brilliant studies of identity, vulnerability and dignity. She manages to capture people so that they are present to an astonishing degree, right there in that very moment. Through December 30, 2017 at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark.

 

Ivan Erofeev

Space Force Construction / Soviet Art Put to the Test

The October Revolution of 1917 changed the course of world history and turned Russia into a showcase where every object and sphere of activity had to demonstrate how society could be remade according to revolutionary principles. A previous iteration of this year’s Venice Biennale comes to Chicago with ten model displays containing over 500 pieces of art, including those of Wolfgang Tillmans, Alexander Rodchenko, and Piet Mondrian, among others. October 29, 2017–January 15, 2018 at the Art Institute of Chicago.
