ARTPIL / Prescription .059
collusion & the summer's end

 

Counting down the days until the end of summer, we’re still not in the clear. Major floods still not drained, and wildfires still not contained as new hurricanes approach. Meanwhile on the political front, Brexit still can’t find its way well after two years; The Catholic church confronted once again with greatly disconcerting revelations in their order; South Africa seeking to suture some old wounds; and in the U.S., Trump’s campaign manager along with his lawyer / personal fixer both found guilty on over a dozen counts of fraud and felony in the backdrop of rising discord in the White House and a scrambling President. No more protection for the Don.

Welcome to our .059th edition of Prescriptions. Here is our look back on the week in the arts.

 

Henry Wessel

Henry Wessel / Still Photographs

Henry Wessel’s diverse oeuvre is shaped significantly by his interest in the American living environment, and his visual language allows for the idiosyncrasies and humor found in everyday life. On display at Galerie Thomas Zander through August 25, 2018.

 

Alejandra Cardenas Palacios

Robert Burley

Land Use

Much of human activity is spent either glorifying or mastering our natural surroundings. This exhibition combines the work of Robert Burley, Dana Fritz, Geoffrey James, and Jamey Stillings, whose projects explore a particular connection with nature. Through September 8, 2018 at Stephen Bulger Gallery.

 

Jannis Kounellis

Art & Coal / Homage To Jannis Kounellis

“For me, iron and coal are materials which reflect most profoundly the world of the Industrial Revolution and, with it, the foundations of our present culture.” –Jannis Kounellis. On view at Museum Küppersmühle für Moderne Kunst / MKM through October 28, 2018.

 

Paulo Nazareth Banderas

Extreme. Nomads / RAY 2018

Images define the reality of our daily lives. With the theme “Extreme” the photo triennial RAY 2018 accounts for this power of the image with a multitude of international artists’ positions. Through September 9, 2018 at MMK Frankfurt.

 

Alfred Seiland

Alfred Seiland Retrospective

In his documentary work, Alfred Seiland deals with cultural landscapes, developing his own independent aesthetic, always meticulously composed in terms of colors and lighting, using an analog camera. On view through October 7, 2018 at Albertina Museum.
