Art and Revolution during the Egyptian Protests
Hyperallergic    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
As I write this story, I am in my room overlooking the main square of Cairo, ironically called Tahrir Square, which means Liberty in Arabic. The square is buzzing with what news agencies estimate is as much as half a million protesters, chanting together. People want to overthrow the president. Egyptian people took to the streets demanding the ouster of Hosni Mubarak, their president for the last thirty years. The demonstrations, which started five days ago, are becoming life-altering events to those witnessing it from the ground. Meters away from Tahrir, the National Egyptian Museum, home to a famous and massive collection of Egyptian antiquities, is protected by three military tanks. More

Mummies Are Beheaded and Museums Ransacked Amid Egypt's Revolutionary Chaos
Artinfo.com    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In the midst of political upheaval in Egypt, looters have broken into several museums around the country, including the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, which is located near Tahrir Square in Cairo, where the main protests have been taking place. Fortunately, a fire in the neighboring headquarters of the Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak did not spread to the museum, but it was broken into on Friday, along with many other art institutions around the country. Meanwhile, Zahi Hawass, the outspoken antiquities head whom Mubarak named to the newly created post of state minister for antiquities as part of an emergency cabinet overhaul, has been fighting back against the looters.

Canadian Artist's Riot-Police Paintings Trapped in Cairo Bedlam
The Globe and Mail    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When the Canadian artist Matthew Carver began painting giant scenes of riot police around the world, he had no idea that the works would some day overlook an actual uprising — and that they might become casualties of it. Three of Carver's paintings are currently on show at the Cairo Biennale — or at least he thinks they are still hanging in the Palace of the Arts, overlooking the streets where Egypt's prodemocracy demonstrators have clashed with police.

Art Museums Make Super Bowl Bet
The Boston Globe    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
All around America this week, offices are transforming into bookie joints in anticipation of the upcoming Super Bowl. Curators, it turns out, aren't immune either: the Milwaukee Art Museum and the Carnegie Museum of Art are putting some paintings on the line in a Super Bowl art-loan smackdown. The bet, instigated by the blog Modern Art Notes for the second year in a row, requires the losing museum to loan a painting to the winning museum. The Carnegie has bet Renoir's Bathers with a Crab on a Steelers victory; Milwaukee has wagered Caillebotte's Boating on the Yerres on the Packers. More

Playing Catch-Up in a Digital Library Race
The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

"Punk" Art Rocks Rome in New Exhibition
AFP via Google News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Sex Pistols music blares out incongruously from Rome's stately Villa Medici, once home to powerful aristocracy and now the prestigious French Academy, which is staging the first ever retrospective into punk visual art. The exhibition takes a unique look at punk-rock art, which developed as a counterculture in Britain, the United States, and elsewhere in Europe in the 1970s and is famous for a style reminiscent of ransom notes written in letters cut from newspapers.

Roy Lichtenstein: Pop Art's Most Popular
CBS    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Whimsical paintings based on cartoons...witty sculptures...prints that remind us of famous paintings, with a commercial twist. Images so familiar to us today it's nearly impossible to believe that they were once considered quite shocking. So shocking that in 1964 Life Magazine wondered if the artist who created them, Roy Lichtenstein, was quite possibly the worst artist in the US. That's not a question anymore. When the dust settled at Christies' auction house last November, one of Lichtenstein's pieces named Ohhh...Alright... did more than "all right": it sold for nearly $43 million. A record, beating out even Warhol's Campbell's soup can. More
