ARTPIL / Prescription .111
Life, Interrupted

 

This week, the world has seen a turning point in the global pandemic of the coronavirus as registered cases of contagion and subsequent loss of lives have spiked. Efforts to “flatten the curve” as it were, or reduce the rate of spread of the virus have been put in place in countries around the world.

National emergencies have been declared. Businesses and schools have been shut down. Theaters, concert halls, museums, and other public spaces have closed their doors. International travel restrictions are now in place with borders closings, and tourism has virtually come to a halt. Streets are becoming empty. Social distancing is the new interaction protocol.

For most people, this is the first global pandemic they are living. For many, this is life, interrupted. Others, continue their existence, perhaps as before, their near solitude or alienation reaffirmed, and is life, continued. Together, alone.

Today is March 19, 2020. Today is the birthday of Josef Albers, German/American artist and writer of the Bauhaus movement (1888), and the anniversary of the death of Dutch artist Willem De Kooning (1997).

Welcome to the .111th edition of Prescriptions. Here is our review of the week in the arts.

 

Gerhard Richter

Gerhard Richter: Painting After All

This exhibit considers Gerhard Richter’s six decade long preoccupation with the dual means of representation and abstraction to explore the material, conceptual, and historical implications of painting. On view through July 5, 2020 in New York at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Breuer.

International Women’s Day / 2020

Since Artpil’s founding, we covered the #MeToo movement, traced the Elimination of Violence Against Women and counted down to the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. These are all interconnected. Often our better halves, and without whom we could not be, we renewed our commitment to engage. Once again, earlier this month we celebrated the women who have inspired and created in the art world.

I Remember Nothing

In the midst of chaos we hunt for dreams. It blends together. Their memories became my memories. Once-present. A personal story of search and encounters, of escape and returning. Limited edition photo book by Ekaterina Anchevskaya, in collaboration with Jessica Nguyen.
