Autumn Is a Second Spring

 

Deeply into fall now, falling back an hour, Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. (Camus). Recently celebrating our 4th Year Anniversary and setting up base in the eternal city of Rome, Artpil enters into its second spring.

Museums and galleries have all reopened, and art fairs, festivals and biennials have resumed their activities, albeit with proper protocols in place. New waves of Covid cases lurk, but life imposes its ways, and will impose. Falling back an hour, when every leaf is a flower…

Today is November 7th. Today is the birthday of the French Nobel Laureate, author and philosopher, Albert Camus (1913) and the anniversary of the death of the American actor and icon Steve McQueen (1980). Welcome to the .128th edition of Prescriptions. Here is our review of the week in the arts.
