ARTPIL / Prescription .024
Salvator ab invito

 

Happy Holidays. In this week’s news, the Embassy of the Trump Administration is now scheduled to move to Jerusalem and the recently auctioned portrait of Christ as Salvator Mundi is on display at the new “Louvre” Abu Dhabi. Proof you can buy or bully your way through irony. We are living in a topsy turvy world.

Welcome to the .024th edition of Prescriptions. Here is our review of the week in the arts.
