ARTPIL / Prescription .090
There and back again

 

India prepares for their upcoming mega elections as prime minister Narendra Modi presents himself for reelection; Brazil’s president Bolsonaro trying to rewrite history with a new gloried take on the ’64 military coup despite pleas from the U.N.; Netanyahu looks to have secured a 5th term as exit polls in Israel’s elections indicate his win in yesterday’s race; Le Pen in France will turn to crowdfunding for her party’s EU election campaign as banks have turned her down.

So modern history is made up of elections, campaigns, and reelections, and the writing and rewriting of itself in cycles of tragedy and farce, to invoke Churchill.

Meanwhile in the arts, the trial for alleged con artist and self proclaimed heiress Anna Sorokin, also known as Anna Delvey, who procured funds for a supposed arts foundation continues in New York; and after over a decade in the making, Jean Nouvel’s impressive design of The National Museum of Qatar was recently completed and now opened to the public.

Welcome to the .090th edition of Prescriptions. Here is our review of the week in the arts.

 

Alec Soth

I Know How Furiously Your Heart Is Beating / Alec Soth

The exhibition comprised of large scale portraits and interiors focuses on Alec Soth’s depiction of the individual, posing questions about what these images reveal about both the sitter and photographer. Through April 27, 2019 at Sean Kelly.

Winter/Spring Season 2019: BAM

The infectious Brazilian stylings of Grupo Corpo. The return of William Christie’s ensemble Les Arts Florissants. Superstar director Ivo van Hove reimagines an obscure Czech opera. And so much more. Winter/Spring Season 2019: BAM Brooklyn Academy of Music, through June 2019.

Broken Nature: Design Takes on Human Survival

John Halpin, Joanna, 2018

The Parted Veil

16 Irish artists use photographic images to consider ideas of remembrance and celebration, and especially to reflect how intimate experiences express the wider events shaping our contemporary world. Including Alan Phelan, Amelia Stein, Mhairi Sutherland, and others. Opening April 12 running through June 30, 2019 at Glucksman.

 

Alan Reynolds

Alan Reynolds / A Small Retrospective

Celebrated from the outset, Alan Reynolds turns his back on popularity, quietly pursuing his inner convictions, spending a lifetime investigating the interplay of horizontal and vertical, shadow and light. Through April 18, 2019 at Annely Juda Fine Art.

 

Luigi Ghirri

Luigi Ghirri / The Map and the Territory

“I am interested in ephemeral architecture, in objects generally regarded as bad taste, but which have never been that for me, in objects charged with desires, dreams, collective memories…” –Luigi Ghirri. On view at Jeu de Paume through June 2, 2019.
