ARTPIL / Prescription .063
Autumnal and Vernal

 

We are today September 22, 100 days remaining until the end of the year. It’s the autumnal equinox in the north, the vernal equinox in the south. On this day, September 22, is the Treaty of Basel concluding the Swabian War (1499); George III and Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz are crowned King and Queen of the Kingdom of Great Britain (1761); the Emancipation Proclamation is introduced by Abraham Lincoln (1862); the first issue of National Geographic is published (1888); with the Spanish Civil War, Pena Blanca is taken, ending the Battle of El Mazuco (1937); in Haiti, François Duvalier is elected president (1957); The Indo Pakistani War over Kashmir ends after the United Nations calls for a ceasefire (1965); Iraq invades Iran (1980)….

Today is the birthday of Anna Karina (1940) and Nick Cave (1957); On this day passed Irving Berlin (1989) and Marcel Marceau (2007).

Welcome to the .063rd edition of Prescriptions. Here is our look back on the week in the arts.

 

Lars Tunbjork

A View from the Side / Lars Tunbjork

With a special eye for that which isn’t normally noticed, that which lurks beneath the surface, Lars Tunbjork’s eye frames what he wanted others to see asking, “Is it really supposed to be like this?” On view at Fotografiska through December 2, 2018.

 

Francesca Woodman

Francesca Woodman: Italian Works

One of the key influences of Italian art on Francesca Woodman was in her precise use of composition. She explored perspective and consciously used formal strategies from her study of Florentine masters. Through December 15, 2018 at Victoria Miro Gallery.

 

Dora Budor

Extra States: Nations in Liquidation

In its attempt to re-read the notion of statehood and revisit state theory, the exhibition aims to go beyond the classical interpretations, exploring the “extra” in the state and beyond. Opening today, September 22 through December 16, 2018 at Extra City Kunsthal.

 

Patzug/Hertweck

Berlin Art Week 2018

Once again for its 7th edition, Berlin Art Week promises a rich variety of programs and exhibitions made possible by collaborating institutions, galleries, artists, and project spaces in Berlin. Running September 26 through 30, 2018.

 

Candice Lin

A Hard White Body, a Porous Slip / Candice Lin

Working with an arsenal of sculptural forms that include crafted objects, plants, insects, bacteria, and compounds, Candice Lin interrogates the ways in which histories are inscribed into the natural world. On view through October 28, 2018 at Logan Center Gallery.

 

Robert Adams

27 Roads: Robert Adams

Whether concrete highways, quiet cuts through dark forests, paved strips or dusty tracks on a clear cut mountainside, Robert Adams’ roads serve as thoughtful metaphors for solitude, connection or freedom. At Fraenkel Gallery through October 20, 2018.

In the context of the emerging women’s movement in the USA during the 1960s and 70s, and as a freelance photographer at a time when print media was suffering its first major crisis, Mark fought her way to the forefront of female voices in photojournalism.
