Artists' Low Income and Status Are International Issues
The Guardian
In the UK, as the Paying Artists campaign revealed in 2014, the majority of contemporary artists are barely surviving financially, with no or low pay the norm. In real terms, nearly three-quarters of artists are getting just 37 percent of the average UK salary from their practice. But while some argue that it's the absence of collective bargaining mechanisms that result in such exploitation, even in countries where there are well-developed fees systems, low pay for artists remains the burning issue.

New Focus: The Art of Making a Living
Philadelphia Inquirer
When administrators at University of the Arts were seeking a new way to prepare students for work after graduation, they didn't have to look far. An answer lay just across Pine Street. They struck a cross-registration deal with Peirce College, a neighboring school that offers classes in finance, ecommerce, marketing, and app development. Kirk Pillow, the university's provost, said it's part of a broader effort to create value for students.

What Can Learned Societies Do about Adjuncts?
Vitae
What power do learned societies have to effect change? What is actually within their reach? These are not omnipotent organizations, despite the attempts to suggest they are. Their resources are finite as are their spheres of influence. What they should do doesn't neatly fit with what they can do. This is not to defend the inaction of learned societies on the issue of contingent labor, but rather to contextualize the possibility of action and recourse.

Thirty Art-Writing Clichés to Ditch in the New Year

It's a new year, which is a fine excuse as any to ditch old bad habits. Here below, I have assembled a not-at-all exhaustive list of art-writing words that I could do without in 2015.

The Problem of the Overlooked Female Artist: An Argument for Enlivening a Stale Model of Discussion
Hyperallergic
Recently I was told that a certain art magazine editor, who had deleted the feminist critique from a review I had written, "can only take so much feminism." At the time, I was infuriated that someone who is tasked with shaping the way art is discussed would take such an explicit and condescending stance against gender equality. With art-world professionals like him hoping that feminism would just go away, it feels necessary to be supportive of any museum exhibitions, gallery shows, market successes, or media attention given to women artists.

Raising the Profile of Columbia's Art

Columbia University owns thousands of antiquities, antiques, and paintings, but it has no major display spaces and no comprehensive database.

Will There Be Life after Death for New Private Museums?
Art Newspaper
From the opening of the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris in October to the construction of the Broad in Los Angeles, now set to open this autumn, the model of the single-donor museum is thriving. You'd have to dial back the clock more than a century to the American "robber barons" like Frick, Morgan, and Huntington to find another moment in art history when so many great institutions were founded by powerful individuals instead of broader coalitions or private-public alliances.
