ARTPIL / Prescription .058
measure for measure

 

Welcome to our 58th edition of Prescriptions. This past week we profiled some interesting artists and events in the art world, from A Measure of Humanity at the Columbus Museum of Art to The Reconfigured Landscape at Centro Botin, as well as the political attention brought on by Frida Kahlo’s exhibition in Hungary. Stay with us as we continue to round out the summer and enter into the fall festival season. Here is our look back on the week in the arts.

 

João Onofre, Ghost, 2009/2012

The Reconfigured Landscape

This generational mix is a dynamic of the collection and offers a perspective on today’s artistic practice, highlighting the freedom the creators have been consolidating over the past fifty years. Among the artists featured include Julie Mehretu, Sol LeWitt, and Leonor Antunes. Through January 13, 2019 at Centro Botin.

 

Saul Leiter

Interview with Saul Leiter

“History of art is a history of great things neglected and ignored and mediocre things being admired. At different times things are different. The history of photography is a history of changes.” –Saul Leiter. Interviewed by David Gibson, first published with iN-PUBLiC.

 

Peter Blake

Peter Blake / Drawings & Watercolors

This retrospective survey of Peter Blake is a joyful look at the career of one of Britain’s best loved artists through his own personal collection of works on paper, accumulated throughout his career. Exhibiting through September 5, 2018 at Waddington Custot.

 

Carissa Rodriguez

A Measure of Humanity

To measure something is to account or quantify it by way of a standard unit. Borrowing the visual language of diagrams, maps, and models, the works offer us a range of views on the human condition. Featuring Mel Bochner and Carissa Rodriguez, among a score of others. Through September 16, 2018 at Columbus Museum of Art.

 

Byung-So Choi

Byung-So Choi at Wooson Gallery

Through endlessly repeated labor and the visualization of time process, Byung-So Choi demonstrates the identification of artistic practice and life, drawing countless lines to cover the entire surface until the paper finally reaches its physical limits. On view through September 29, 2018 at Wooson Gallery.

 

Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo / Masterpieces from Museo Dolores

A retrospective of Frida Kahlo’s life and work is currently on display with over 30 paintings on loan from the Museo Dolores Olmedo in Mexico City and from other private collectors. At Hungarian National Gallery through November 4, 2018.
