Vernal equinox is here. The North and the South, along with the sun bathers and the insomniacs, are in equal footing. At least for today. Welcome to the start of spring. Here is our review of the week.

 

Lawrence Abu Hamdan

Hammer Projects: Lawrence Abu Hamdan

Through an installation of audiovisual works which began in 2016, Lawrence Abu Hamdan continues an ongoing acoustic investigation into a Syrian military prison north of Damascus. On view at Hammer Museum through May 20, 2018.

 

Giulio Paolini

Invisible Cities

Taking its title from Italo Calvino’s novel, an international group of artists explore concepts of the ideal city and discover the necessary coexistence of the real and the imagined. Artists include Fausto Melotti, Maria Helena Vieira da Silva, Gego, Shusaku Arakawa, and Tomás Saraceno, among others. Through May 4, 2018 at Waddington Custot.

 

Judith Barry

Art In The Age Of The Internet

This exhibit examines how the internet has radically changed the field of art, in its production, distribution, and reception, comprising a broad range of works across a variety of media. Artists include Judith Barry, Dara Birnbaum, Albert Oehlen, and others. On view at ICA / Institute Of Contemporary Art Boston through May 20, 2018.

 

Alicja Kwade

Alicja Kwade / LinienLand

Alicja Kwade in a comprehensive solo exhibition addresses different phenomena and conceptual models from physics, philosophy, and sociology, resulting in works with a conceptual background, poetic as they are formally stringent. On view through May 6, 2018 at Museum Haus Konstruktiv.

 

Lee Friedlander

The American Document

Presenting significant works of 20th century American documentary photography, this exhibition charts the shift from socially engaged photography to a new definition of the document. Photographers include Dorothea Lange, Arthur Rothstein, Walker EvansRobert Frank, Joel Meyerowitz, and others. Opens tomorrow, March 21 through April 14, 2018 at Huxley-Parlour Gallery.

 

Peter van Agtmael

The American Document / Part II

As sequel to The American Document, we invoke a photo essay of Magnum photographer Peter van Agtmael, The Fractured States of America, first published in National Geographic. After returning from years of war coverage, van Agtmael tries to piece together the memory, identity, race, class, and family, in a landscape which has become as surreal as the war he left behind.
