Why Art Is Dangerous: Making Art Is Making Trouble

Above the entrance to a 2011 exhibition in Paris called The Promises of the Past was written the claim that the function of art was to make the world better. Better than it might appear at present.

Colleges Need Free Speech More Than Trademarks
Chronicle of Higher Education
What's in a trademark? To many people in higher education, mention of the term—which denotes the legal protection afforded words or other devices that identify a good's or service's source—leads to bewildered looks. "You mean the designs on shirts sold in the bookstore?" Trademarks in higher education encompass institutional names, logos, and insignias, the iconography that fans love to see featured on all kinds of merchandise. Institutions license their marks on these products, often relying on third parties to broker deals that can produce significant royalties. This $4.6-billion industry appears to be good for colleges, which exploit the revenue channel to make up for losses elsewhere in their operations.

Women at the Top
Washington Post
Their ages span four generations, and their careers follow no linear path. They have enough letters behind their names to form a small university. They've worked in Switzerland, Qatar, and too many small towns to count, hailing from regions as diverse as the southern hemisphere and the segregated South. The thirteen women who direct some of the region's prominent museums are as different as the institutions they lead. But nine of them have at least one similarity: they succeeded men.

The Adjunct Penalty
Adjunct Blog
Much discussion exists about how to escape the adjunct's life of indentured servitude for tenure-track positions. After all, positions in the coveted ivory tower will always outrank a life of little pay and heavy, lower-level teaching loads. Despite the many pitfalls of adjunct life, many adjuncts choose to forgo the ivory tower. In doing so, they enter a career with a penalty that is both tangible and psychological.

Last November, a triptych by Francis Bacon sold for $142.4 million, a record for any work of art at a public sale.

A fake Marc Chagall painting, owned by a businessman from Leeds who had bought it for $167,309 in 1992, was ordered to be burned last month, and an Istanbul art gallery closed down its Joan Miró exhibition in 2013 after directors of the Spanish Surrealist painter's estate said some of the works were forgeries. The uncovering of fakes by committees comprising descendants of the artist is increasingly common and has prompted one of Britain’s foremost art historians to condemn the methods used by scholars to authenticate works as a "professional disgrace."
