ARTPIL Profiles of the Arts

Storms in Italy leave a path of devastation, inundation in Venice, and a growing list of fatalities.

Jair Bolsonaro joins the ranks of rising far-right populists as he is elected president in Brazil, despite – or strangely because of – his vocal distain against gays, minorities and foreigners, women, humanitarians, and perhaps humans all around.

Google employees worldwide conduct a walkout over the company’s mishandling of harassment and discrimination cases and other issues of transparency as news surfaces of a 90 million dollar exit package offered to a senior executive accused of sexual misconduct.

The U.S. Midterm elections are this week; a reminder that American politics more often revolve around cycles of campaigns, rallies, and elections/re-elections than real substantive change. Still hoping to be proven wrong.

Welcome to the .069th edition of Prescriptions. Here is our review of the week in the arts.

Bright Black World / Todd Hido

The images in the exhibition Bright Black World fill the viewer with unease while simultaneously a profound sense of wonder. A vision, as Todd Hido says, that “pushes the envelope of darkness.” At Reflex Amsterdam through November 17, 2018.
