VARIOUS LOCATIONS, Rotterdam

Zhou Tao, The Worldly Cave, 2017.
by

Matt Turner

The scale and ambition of International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR), which packs 593 short and feature films into 12 days of independent cinema, as well as talks, performances, and gallery installations in venues across the city, makes it almost uniquely difficult to approach, even for the experienced visitor.

On September 19, 2017, Mexico City was hit by one of the most destructive earthquakes in the country’s history.

Dublin Gallery Weekend

VARIOUS LOCATIONS, Dublin

Abbas Akhavan, Study For a Monument, 2013-16.

Jakarta Biennale 2017, “Jiwa”

VARIOUS LOCATIONS, Jakarta

External view of Museum of Fine Arts and Ceramics, Jakarta Biennale, 2017.
by

Melissa Gronlund

The 2017 edition of the Jakarta Biennale proposes a soulful understanding of Indonesia, in which “jiwa” reigns.
