ARTPIL / Prescription .039
The Holy Week

 

Holy Week proved to be rife with tension and conflict, unabated by All Fool’s Day.

Russia expelled diplomats from 23 countries, in kind and in equal measure for each of their own expelled from other countries, then broadcast their ‘Satan 2’ missile tests.

Demonstrations by Palestinians in Gaza were met with military violence; EU called for independent investigation into the disproportionate force by the Israeli military.

Meanwhile The Pope’s Easter message Urbi et Orbi urged to end the Syria carnage, for healing in South Sudan and The Congo, for dialogues in the Korean peninsula.

Welcome to the .039th edition of Prescriptions. Here is our review of the week in the arts.

 

Cerith Wyn Evans

Cerith Wyn Evans / Museo Tamayo

From neon sculptures, kinetic and organic elements, sound pieces, and a series of Murano glass candlesticks, the exhibition of Cerith Wyn Evans seeks to trigger sensitive and temporary experiences in the viewer. At Museo Tamayo through May 6, 2018.

 

Bernd Oppl, Unsichtbares Kino (2016)

The Remains of Cinema

Crossing genres and generations, this exhibition contrasts artistic positions with selected examples of historical films to trace the impact and resonance of cinema on art and cultural memory. Including the works of Anne Collier and Joseph Beuys, among others. Through April 22, 2018 at Künstlerhaus, Halle für Kunst & Medien.

 

Andrzej Wróblewski

Andrzej Wroblewski

Often drawing from Poland’s sociopolitical atmosphere in the wake of the Second World War, Andrzej Wróblewski’s singular practice is characterized by a unique blend of figuration and abstraction. On view at David Zwirner Gallery through April 14, 2018.

 

Chiharu Shiota

Chiharu Shiota / Beyond Time

Acclaimed installation and performance artist Chiharu Shiota has created an awe-inspiring, site-specific installation of thread within the beautiful 18th-century Chapel. Through September 2, 2018 at YSP / Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

 

Fabio Mauri

Fabio Mauri / With Out

“I act as if Fascism has undergone its final condemnation, but is still in force today. Elsewhere, one might rightly suspect, it appears that it is still operating in different ways.” –Fabio Mauri. Through April 7, 2018 at Hauser & Wirth, New York.

 

What Will People Say / Directed by Iram Haq

Human Rights Watch Film Festival

15th annual Human Rights Watch Film Festival presented by TIFF and Human Rights Watch features a diverse lineup celebrating the power individuals can hold in complex social and political situations. April 18-25, 2018 at TIFF / Toronto International Film Festival.
