ARTPIL / Prescription .073
Art of the no deal

 

World leaders take selfies with the Crown Prince during the G20 Summit in Argentina hashtagging Saudi Arabia’s recent cover up of the ordered murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The European Parliament approves the Brexit deal leaving Theresa May to sell it back to Britain while a growing sentiment backpedals toward a second referendum.

Yellow Vest protests in Paris continue, diminishing in numbers but rising in tension and violence as demands fall on deaf ears and over 200 are arrested during its last standoff. It may be time to start listening, lest the Rally enters the plaza with promises and brews this petri dish for populism.

Welcome to the .073rd edition of Prescriptions. Here is our review of the week in the arts.

 

Dave Heath

Dialogues with Solitudes / Dave Heath

Published in 1965, Dave Heath’s book captured the zeitgeist in the manner of a photographic protest song. His photography depicted the fractures and feeling of unease in the American post-war. On view through December 23, 2018 at Le Bal.

 

Anna Bjerger

Anna Bjerger / Lit

A balance of extremes, Anna Bjerger’s works contain the psychological content of the image and the physical aspects of painting. The narrative evolves, arriving at new meanings through the language of painting. At Galleri Magnus Karlsson through December 15, 2018.

 

Jack Beal

30 Years Frumkin/Adams

Celebrating its 30th anniversary with a selection of works by artists from the gallery’s history, from key figures of the Bay Area, realist painters, Latin American artists, and other contemporaries. On view through December 22, 2018 at George Adams Gallery.

 

Agustina Woodgate

This is Not America

The first Faena Festival is an exploration of America as a concept, myth and narrative, dividing us at times, but ultimately has the power to unify across physical, political and conceptual borders. Featuring the works of Joseph BeuysAlfredo JaarBoris MiticAgustina Woodgate, among others. Miami Art Week, December 3-9, 2018.

 

Ana Manso

Eye Massage / Ana Manso

A surface for Ana Manso is a place where abstraction meets daily life, of possibility and of encounter, where the unpredictability of chance is orchestrated by the conscious selection of the right ingredients. At Pedro Cera through December 22, 2018.

 

Robert Rauschenberg

Spreads 1975-83 / Robert Rauschenberg

First UK exhibition of Robert Rauschenberg’s Spreads. “More like ideas than objects – reels of association run through the projector of a mind unusually sensitive to the up-and-down jangles of modern life.” –Thomas B. Hess. Through January 26, 2018 at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac, London.

 

Alfredo Jaar
