ARTPIL Profiles of the Arts
ARTPIL / Prescription .051
Summer, in the city

 

Well into summer now and much happening in the world, as always. Stay with us as we approach the center of the calendar and round out our first year. Welcome to the .051st edition of Prescriptions. Here is our review of the week in the arts.

 

Jasmina Cibic / The Pavilion

Unsettlement

Unsettlement is conceived as both a contemporary condition – in which our claim to the spaces we occupy is increasingly precarious – and a strategy for artistic, social and political engagement. On view through July 7, 2018 at MUMA Monash University Museum of Art.

 

John Akomfrah, Expeditions One: Signs of Empire / Smoking Dogs Films

John Akomfrah / Signs of Empire

John Akomfrah’s moving image works have offered some of the most rigorous and expansive reflections on the culture of the black diaspora, pioneering the injection of black narratives into popular media. At New Museum through September 2, 2018.

 

Shirana Shahbazi

Shirana Shahbazi at Kunsthaus Hamburg

Shirana Shahbazi embraces two fundamental attributes that make the photographic image fascinating: its precision in the representation of reality as well as its capacity of capturing the ephemeral moment. Objects in Mirror Are Closer than They Appear, through August 26, 2018 at Kunsthaus Hamburg.

 

Thomas Lehnerer

Thomas Lehnerer / Free Play

“I have a small sheet of paper, a piece of canvas or a lump of wax… Initially, my mind is focused on just one question, the question of beginning. How does an image come about?” –Thomas Lehnerer. On view through September 2, 2018 at Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein.

 

Geert Goiris

Melancholia

Artists including Etel Adnan, Marlene Dumas, Alberto Giacometti, Mimmo Jodice, and Kiki Smith among others explore issues such as nostalgia for the depiction of solitude, absence, and the passing time. On view at Fondation Boghossian through August 19, 2018.

 

David Goldblatt

David Goldblatt / In Memoriam

This feature surveys the work of David Goldblatt, from his early series of the coal miners through South Africa’s apartheid-era, and celebrates his critical eye and equally compassionate gaze. In Memoriam, David Goldblatt, November 29, 1930 – June 25, 2018.
