In “curtain call, variations on a madness,” Montreal artist Abbas Akhavan continues to explore the potential of chroma key green screen technology, which he associated with his fascination with an ancient building material made of basement, water and straw called ear. For the Chisenhale commission, he filled the gallery with an overflowing green wall, at the top of which he placed cob sculptures reproducing the shapes of a colonnade that once led to the Arch of Palmyra in Syria, including a large one. part was tragically destroyed by ISIS in 2015.

By mixing the endless possibilities offered by the green screen and the dark history of the destruction of the heritage site, the installation is in a way a portal through time and space, and leaves the viewer feeling transported with it.

Incredibly, this is Alvaro Barrington’s first solo exhibition at a British institution.

His practice as a potter working with clay and his deep religious belief are central to the work of Theaster Gates, who says both of them teach you how to “shape the world.” Fittingly, the Chicago-based artist’s latest outing at the Whitechapel Gallery is titled “A Clay Sermon” and includes work spanning two decades of production, from the first hand-thrown jars to his Afro-Mingei sculptures to large scale. The artist has also selected historical ceramics from public and private collections to display alongside his own, and is launching a new film rich in music that takes the form of a sermon on clay.

The exhibition is also seeping through London with an intervention in the ceramic galleries of the V&A and a simultaneous exhibition at White Cube Mason’s Yard. The project will culminate next summer when the artist assumes the annual commission of the Serpentine Pavilion.

“Theaster Gates: A Clay Sermon” can be viewed at 77-82 Whitechapel High St London E1 7QX

This one is a bit of a cheat because, as of this writing, we don’t yet know what the Korean-American concept artist has in store for her installation in Tate Modern’s cavernous Turbine Hall. The institution is notoriously silent about the commission until it is officially unveiled, which will be later today, but we are confident enough to add it to this list. The artist, known for working with microbial and other unconventional materials, cryptically hinted that the new work will be an “aquarium of machines,” and the institution said it would build on on themes on which the artist has focused throughout his career, exploring the links between art and science, and working to activate different senses. We are titillated.

“The Hyundai Commission: Anicka Yi” is on view at Turbine Hall Bankside London SE1 9TG

On track to Manila

Explore Manila through the LRT-1. Illustration by Ralph Justin Ulep and cover by Jules Vivas

Among the most widely used in the National Capital Region (NCR) public transportation system is the Light Rail Transit (LRT), particularly Line 1, which runs from Roosevelt to Baclaran.

Manila is a cultural hotspot, with heritage sites, world-class museums, holes in the walls and must-see restaurants and art galleries, which is why some consider Manila to be the jewel of Asia.

Sure, the LRT might not be an Orient Express, but it’s the fastest and most convenient way to get around town. In Metro Manila, where roads are always congested, a trip from point A to point B in 10 to 30 minutes or less is rare. Fortunately, there is the LRT-1.

Thanks to COVID-19, the new normal setup allows Manileños to work and study from home. Almost no one goes out. To cap off the recently concluded National Tourism Week, the Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC) recently released a train ride video that highlights points of interest near Line 1 stations.

LRT-1 ikotMNL virtual tour was hosted by Gilbert Roy Alva, a content producer specializing in animating the hustle and bustle of the metro. He created the visuals through the Cities: Skylines video game. Those familiar with LRT-1 can easily refer to the location catalog while the online travel is a perfect beginner’s guide to visiting Manila for those who are not from the NCR.

The tour begins at Roosevelt, the northernmost end of the First Line. Here SM North Edsa, the first SM supermall and the country’s largest mall in terms of gross floor area, is located.

The Andres Bonifacio National Monument, also known as the “Cry of Pugad Lawin” monument designed by national artist Guillermo Tolentino, is also nearby, as is the future SM City Grand Central.

Not much to do near Fifth Avenue station, but it should be noted that there is a Jollibee directly below.
