ARTPIL Profiles of the Arts
ARTPIL / Prescription .087
Reflections on the Guillotine

 

Once again in the UK, Theresa May’s new Brexit plan is voted down in the Parliament now with just over 2 weeks remaining for their scheduled exit; Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 Max 8 crashed Sunday shortly after takeoff from Addis Ababa, taking the lives of all 157 people on board; In the U.S., the Governor of California Gavin Newsom is to sign an executive order today to end the death penalty making the 2006 court-ordered moratorium now an executive one, citing that the system overwhelmingly discriminates against racial minorities and the poor, adding that “Our death penalty system has been – by any measure – a failure. It has provided no public safety benefit or value as a deterrent […] most of all, the death penalty is absolute, irreversible and irreparable in the event of a human error,” – reminiscent of Albert Camus, Reflections on the Guillotine.

Welcome to the .087th edition of Prescriptions. Here is our review of the week in the arts.

I Walk the Night

Driven by an undefined long shadow which is taking over everywhere, while its silent threat relentlessly spreads under the noise of the current climate… A change of paradigm has happened. Artists presented include Martha Araújo, Gabriel Borba Filho, and Loreto Martínez Troncoso, among others. At PM8 Gallery through April 5, 2019.
