ARTPIL / Prescription .072
For our other halves

 

Today is November 25th. The United Nations has designated today International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. Today beings the 16 Days of Activism, an international campaign to challenge violence against women, leading to December 10th, Human Rights Day, this year, the 70th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

In other news today, the European Union leaders approved an agreement for Britain to leave the EU, Brexit, which will later be rejected by the UK Parliament.

Today is the birthday of Henry Ware Eliot (1843), American industrialist, philanthropist, and the father of T. S. Eliot, and the death of Léon-Paul Fargue, French poet (1876–1947): “A scent of evening, ineffable, bearing an obscure doubt, exquisite and tender, enters by the open window into the room where I am at work…”

Welcome to late November. Welcome to the .072nd edition of Prescriptions. Here is our review of the week in the arts.

Postcommodity

Let Us Now Give Thanks

Thanksgiving in America, a nation whose founding conditioned on colonialism and a proclamation premised on the blood of the natives. The irony is something to bear. On this occasion we survey some contemporary Native American art, featuring Fritz Scholder, the artist collective Postcommodity, and others.
