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.

The Remains of Cinema

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.

Fabio Mauri

Fabio Mauri / With Out

What Will People Say / Directed by Iram Haq

Human Rights Watch Film Festival
