Study: More Than Twice As Many Students Are Paying Attention To Political News Than In 2014

Students felt, even in their short lives, news had changed. Part of it’s the Trump effect, but I think it’s really that the Parkland generation is paying attention. They have an issue. I can’t tell you how many times school shootings came up. It’s definitely on their minds. They’re going to hear about it on their phones. The 24-hour news cycle has spun out of control to this hyper-velocity model that’s coming at them. The technology feeds them these stories in [Read Entire Story]

Pricing Your Artwork Through Your Mid-Career Phase: A Few Thoughts

Art fairs, as a model of selling (not just presenting) artwork, have taken a bit of a beating in the press lately. First there was this in a New York Time's piece titled "At Art Fairs, Keep an Open Mind, but Watch the Wallet":But Lisa Schiff, an international art adviser who has consulted for the actor Leonardo DiCaprio’s foundation, takes a different view. “I don’t like fairs because it’s a pileup of merchandise,” she said.Ms. Schiff cautioned collectors, particularly new ones, not to buy at [Read Entire Story]

The Artist as Lawyer, an Interview with Sergio Sarmiento about Art Law

The world of art has become more complicated as copyright, appropriation, and other issues force artists, dealers, collectors, and others to turn to lawyers for help. As foibles around the sale and maintenance of luxury art objects grab media headlines, you might be fooled into believing the future of art is in litigation. I invited Sergio Sarmiento to join me to talk about the evolving world of art law and discuss why he went to law school as an art project, what he thinks about some recent [Read Entire Story]

I see plate-licking almost every day, which delights me because I do the cooking. (I will not consider the possibility that anything in front of this one would be equally licked.)

Artists Stage a Contemporary Art “Black Market” in Tokyo

Illustration by LIE FUJISHIRO TOKYO — On July 21 and 22, the art collective Chaos Lounge held the first Contemporary Art Black Market at the “art factory” BUCKLE KÔBÔ in Tokyo. The event was organized to address an existential question that haunts Japanese artists: Is art possible when there’s only a limited domestic market to support it? Indeed, Japan’s art market is severely underdeveloped in comparison to that of China, Britain, or the United States, representing about one percent of the [Read Entire Story]

Remembering The Now-Gone Music Stores On NYC’s 48th Street

Forty-eighth Street was once famous for stores that sold musical instruments. Those stores catered to musicians of every stripe, but the vibe was very rock and roll. The names that stand out for me are Manny’s and Sam Ash, but there were several others, packed together, one next to the other, each a world unto itself. In my own private atlas of the city, that street was also notable for the degree its character changed in the course of one block, from Seventh Avenue to Sixth Avenue. The music [Read Entire Story]

Did Telling Stories Help Us To Evolve As Humans?

Anthropologists have long theorized that humans developed "moralistic high-gods" as a way of promoting shared norms and prosocial behaviors. What is religion, after all, but a patchwork quilt of stories reminding humans how to behave—and, more importantly, how not to behave? But religion is thought to have emerged only with the advent of agriculture and large-scale, politically complex human settlements. SOURCE: ArtsJournal - Read entire story here. [Read Entire Story]

How Digital Art Reaches Parts of Cuba that Lack Internet Access

Still from Julia Weist and Nestor Siré, “Holguín (BABALAWO)” (2016) (courtesy the artists) Every week, a one-terabyte collection of media files known as El Paquete Semanal (“The Weekly Package”) makes its way across Cuba via networks of person-to-person file sharing.

Window Cleaner Rushes To Save Banksy Mural After It Had Been Painted Over

UK Government: Foreign Languages Versus Arts Education

Under their model, “modern foreign languages teaching hours are increased at the expense of subjects other than biology, chemistry, classics, English, geography, history, mathematics, and physics teaching hours”. Consequently, 51,000 more curriculum hours are being planned for languages by 2022, which is to be achieved, in part, by cutting hours for art & design, design & technology, drama and music by a collective 19,000 hours.

Censorship as False Morality

The most recent attempt at art censorship comes from a petition started by someone named Mia Merrill who complained about a Balthus painting at the Met titled Thérèse Dreaming. I suggest that Ms. Merrill next task should be to have Nabokov’s Lolita removed from libraries and burned.Notice the progression of her argument—it begins with the image and its description. Then, she makes a judgment about Balthus’ personal life, and ends with the main reason of why the painting should be removed.Read [Read Entire Story]
