ARTPIL / Prescription .056
Deep into Summer

 

Deep into summer with heat waves and record temperatures, wild fires and fire tornados. Climate change is asserting itself through environmental hazards. Less and less here to deny. Our thoughts go out to those affected.

Here is today’s edition of Prescriptions, our look back on the week in the arts.

 

Neal Barr

Icons of Style

This exhibition explores some of the ways photographers whose careers have been closely associated with the fashion industry have shaped evolving notions of style and beauty. Presenting works of Richard Avedon, Yohji Yamamoto, and Sarah Moon, among others. Through October 21, 2018 at The Getty Museum.

 

Hana Miletić

Dependencies / Hana Miletic

Presenting the works of Sven Johne, Yorgos Karailias, and Ariane Loze, among others. At Art Space Pythagorion, from August 4 – September 30, 2018.

 

Vladimir Svetlov
