ARTPIL / Prescription .052
Look back on our 1st year

 

Here we are. We just rounded out our first year with well over a quarter-million visits. A very interesting first twelve months, indeed. And this is just the start….

We covered some amazing artist profiles and events. We followed festivals and art fairs, from Frieze to Basel, and Biennales from Venice to Berlin. We descended on Design in Milan, Les Rencontres in Arles, and The Armory in New York. We followed everything from FIAC to Art Paris, ARCO to Volta, and mirrored the movable feasts of Documenta in Kassel and Manifesta in Palermo. We sprang for La Nuit Blanche and the Night of Museums.

We pushed forward the emerging, from Foam Talent to Circulation(s), from Art Next to Next Wave and Voies Off, along with Film festivals from Aesthetica to Locarno, DOCfield to Artecinema, as well as the premiers and the avant premières of Pure Hearts, and Wonderstruck.

We celebrated International Women’s Day, the movement of #MeToo, and elevated our own 30 Under 30 Women Photographers to new heights. We honored the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and remembered the passing of David Goldblatt and John Morris.

We covered the award winners of Sony World Photography and National Geographic’s Travel Photographer of the Year, along with Wallpaper’s Design Awards and the Turner Prize. We shared opportunities for LensCulture Awards and the W. Eugene Smith Photography Grant, as well as the Luis Valtueña Humanitarian Photo Competition.

We went literary with Invisible Cities, The Whiteness of the Whale, and Journeys with the Waste Land with T.S. Eliot. We became fashion conscious with Photo Vogue Festival, Berning & Di Battista’s Confluence, Rei KawakuboComme des Garçons at The Met, scoped out Fashionclash after parties and covered Aperture’s The Story of Fashion Photography. We even strutted the catwalks of Tbilisi Fashion Week.

We time-traveled Past Forward for Architecture & Design with Post-Soviet Visions and the Future Now Symposium. We covered 30 Years of World Press Photo, 50 Years of Bauhaus, 70 Years of Magnum, and 140 Years of Hochschule Luzern, spanning everything from Aspects of German Art to The American Document + American Document Part II. We were Being Modern, Being Infrastructural. We were Being Human.

While the U.S. Government was becoming increasingly isolationist in pulling out of international organizations such as UNESCO, the Paris Climate Agreement, and the U.N. Human Rights Council, we examined Art & Politics of the White House, dove into Video Art in Latin America, espoused The Defense of Our Freedoms and was witness to the Human Rights Watch Film Festivals at TIFF & Lincoln Center. We offered a Vision of the Other America and took a knee for the NGOs in A Moment of Silence.

With the rise of populism in the world and global issues of migration and race tensions, we traced Claude Iverné’s passage through Bilad es SudanLuca Sola’s Stimela Project, surveyed Haitian Art, and supported the movement of #WhileBlack, as well as place into the spotlight such artists as Ai Weiwei and John Akomfrah and their epic works of Human Flow and Signs of Empire. We showcased Richard Avedon & James Baldwin’s poignant collaboration, Nothing Personal….

Nothing personal. This is just the beginning. Thank you, each and every one of you, for being here with us as we move forward.

Welcome to your world. Create. Engage. Inspire.
