ARTPIL / Prescription .049
Trade Wars & Mega Mergers

 

Trade Wars, mega mergers, the World Cup… Politicians being killed off before upcoming elections in Mexico like a season end of a TV series, over 100 and mounting. The U.S. to withdraw from yet another international governing body, this time the United Nations Human Rights Council.

Welcome to the .049th edition of Prescriptions. Here is our review of the week in the arts.

 

Etienne Martin

Mary Corse

Mary Corse / A Survey in Light

Mary Corse’s first solo museum survey examines this artist’s career and her deep fascination with perception and with the possibility that light itself could serve as both a subject and material. On view through November 25, 2018 at Whitney Museum of American Art.

 

Robert Irwin

Robert Irwin: Sculpture Configurations

Robert Irwin pioneered the Southern California-based Light and Space movement and continues to present radical new ideas of how space is perceived, conditional and responsive to specific environments. At Pace Gallery through August 17, 2018.

 

Joachim Hildebrand

Joachim Hildebrand / Wild West

Instead of the virgin landscape or remnants of the better days of the American dream, Joachim Hildebrand displays a paved paradise that is manufactured. It is a global Wild West in the middle of America. On view through August 17, 2018 at Alp Galleries.

 

Marlene Dumas

Marlene Dumas / Myths and Mortals

Marlene Dumas will debut a series of works originally created for a Dutch translation of Shakespeare’s Venus & Adonis, alongside new paintings ranging from monumental nudes to intimately scaled canvases. Through June 30, 2018 at David Zwirner Gallery.

In his practice, he starts from everyday objects and raw materials that have special material or formal properties.
