Aesthetica: June/July Issue out Today

Inside the June/July issue

We’ve been very busy over the past few months. One of the biggest announcements to make is the launch of the inaugural Aesthetica Short Film Festival (ASFF), which is an international platform for independent short film. The first festival will take place later this year, and we’re very excited! In other news, as the summer season rolls in, there are so many invigorating exhibitions, releases and events for you to visit.

In art, we head to the Guggenheim Bilbao where the Luminous Interval from D. Daskalopoulos Collection features the works of over 30 internationally acclaimed artists such as Louise Bourgeois, Kiki Smith, Damien Hirst and Paul McCarthy. The show offers contemplation of some of the most powerful works of the past few decades. ArtAngel launches a new commission at MIF and we also look back at 20 years of their work.

Bruce Nauman turns 70 and to celebrate The Kunsthalle Mannheim is exhibiting a massive retrospective of this prolific artist’s career. The master of remix, Cory Arcangel opens his new show Pro Tools at the Whitney in New York City. We introduce the work of Jason Schembri with his Factory Girl series and present a visual glimpse of what’s on offer at this year’s PHotoEspaña.

In film, Golden Bear winner at the Berlin International Film Festival, Bal by Semih Kaplanoğlu, traces the past. We also have a preview of ASFF, giving you the heads up about the UK’s latest film festival. In music, French band, Underground Railroad, chats about their latest album and we examine how the Internet is changing radio. In theatre, Marina Abramović is back in the UK and discusses her latest production The Life and Death of Marina Abramović (with Willem Dafoe and music by Antony Hegarty from Antony and the Johnsons).

Finally, we celebrate the opening of The Hepworth Wakefield and speak with Simon Wallis, the gallery’s Director, about the UK’s newest public gallery. Enjoy!
