ARTPIL / Prescription .079
Spring summer fall winter spring

 

Into the ides of January and resolutions have already been tested.

Brazil’s newly elected Bolsonaro dissolves the Ministry of Culture, the first move of any playbook for subjugating a people; Into the 3rd week of the U.S. Government shutdown, Trump sequesters into his twitter handle in some madness of an emperor; Netanyahu is still unflinching before a growing case for his indictment, looking on to April elections and acting as Minister of Defense; Le Pen in France posturing for the appropriation of a discontented people, picking up the pieces of something about to shatter… The beginning, the middle, the end, and the renewing cycles of such human ambition.

Welcome to the .079th edition of Prescriptions. Here is our review of the week in the arts.

 

Chris Dorley-Brown

Chris Dorley-Brown / The Corners

The artist Chris Dorley-Brown sets up the camera in one location, and tilts and pans around the cityscape to capture the activity on the street, along with it’s unsuspecting protagonists. On view alongside its accompanying exhibition Street Life, featuring André Kertész and Josef Koudelka, among others, through Mar 2, 2019 at Robert Koch Gallery.

Rachel Rose / Wil-o-Wisp

Weaving realities of the rural English landscape, Rachel Rose questions how our perceptions of the world can so radically change within the fluctuating norms of society and the seismic shifts of history. Through February 3, 2019 at Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo.

Ulrike Müller / Container

For Ulrike Müller, painting is encountered as a de-centered, polymorphic area of tension, circled over and again to mobilize instabilities and ambiguities beyond standardized patterns of experience and classifications. On view at Kunstverein Düsseldorf through February 17, 2019.

Time Frames

This exhibition of Contemporary East Asian Photography delves into various concepts of time, from a reflection on a legend or historical event, to a memory, missed moment, or a future imagined and anticipated. Among the 32 artists whose works are featured are Nobuyoshi Araki, Bae Bien-U, Yao Lu, Daido Moriyama, and Hiroshi Sugimoto. Through March 24, 2019 at BMA Baltimore Museum of Art.

 

Pieter Hugo

Pieter Hugo / Hacer Noche
