No Detail Goes Unnoticed When Art Is a Click Away
New York Times
The construction of new art museum buildings like that of the Whitney Museum of American Art in Manhattan's meatpacking district naturally receives a lot of attention. But there's another kind of construction going on that tells more about where museums are at and where they are going than any shiny new edifice: their websites.

Fighting the Wikipedia Boys' Club
Dazed
The midcentury sculptor Doris Porter Caesar's presence on Wikipedia only came into being a year ago. Before February 1, 2014, her female nudes were mere blips waving at art history from under university archives and phonebook entries. That day, around one hundred female artists got new Wikipedia entries. The intruders behind the takeover were members of the group Art+Feminism, whose global edit-a-thon saw sessions across six countries involving more than six hundred participants.

Is the Design World Still a Boys' Club?
Frieze
When Gertrud Arndt quit her job in an architect's office in 1923 to take up a scholarship at an art and design school whose prospectus promised to welcome "any person of good repute, without regard to age or sex," she had high hopes of studying architecture. Instead, she was told to join the weaving workshop, as were most of the other women intent on studying design at the Bauhaus.

Dealing with Inappropriate Emails from Students
GradHacker
About once a week I will open my inbox and be greeted by an email that will leave me at a loss for words. A few nights ago, for instance, one student emailed me at 10:30 PM on a Sunday requesting—"urgently"—a meeting at 7:30 the next morning. She wanted to discuss an assignment that was due the day after and couldn't make it any other time during the day. I decided not to respond—at least not immediately.

Teach or Perish
Chronicle Review
My undergraduates' career plans are a peculiar mix of naked ambition and hair-shirt altruism. If they pursue investment banking, they do so not merely to make money. Rather, they wish to use their eventual wealth to distribute solar light bulbs to every resident of a developing nation. They'll apply to the finest law schools in hopes of some day judging war criminals at The Hague. They dream of engineering an app that will make tequila flow out of thin air into your outstretched shot glass. My students, I suspect, are receiving their professional advice from a council of emojis.
