ARTPIL / Prescription .066
Stormy Weather

 

A devastating tropical cyclone strikes the eastern coast of the U.S. and Central America leaving a trail of devastation while the U.S. President rallies for mid-terms and meets with White House advisor Kim Kardashian’s husband. Nikki Haley resigns as United Nations Ambassador after overseeing the U.S. withdrawal from UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) – The White House undoubtedly forming their own Educational, Scientific and Cultural organization headed by Betsy DeVos, Andrew R. Wheeler, and Kanye West, respectively. Several prominent Israeli politicians rebuke the marriage of an Arab/Jewish celebrity couple in the backdrop of conflict resurgence in Gaza. And, a Russian official is in trouble after his wife’s filming of a music video involving much twerking in the middle of traffic.

Welcome to our .066th edition of Prescriptions. Here is our look back on the week in the arts.

We Feed the World

This is about people, not production lines; farms not factories. This is about a farming system that regenerates the Earth and does not cost the planet, and the photographers who capture it, including Tanya Habjouqa, Martin Parr, and Rena Effendi among nearly 50 others. Launching at Bargehouse Gallery, through October  21, 2018 and continuing to other venues.
