Copy Rights
ARTnews    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
According to James Pilgrim, cocurator of the exhibition Copycat: Reproducing Works of Art at the Clark Art Institute, Albrecht Dürer was one of the first artists to sue another for copying; he charged Marcantonio Raimondi with making prints of his paintings and using his monogram. Today, five centuries later, courts differentiate between that kind of forgery and appropriation art, permitting the latter if it falls under the "fair use" exception to copyright law, that is, if it can be proved that the appropriator transformed the original material as a way of commenting on, satirizing, or criticizing the source.

Humanities and Public Life
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Recently, the University of Iowa Press announced a new book series: Humanities and Public Life. Within fifty-eight minutes, we had our first inquiry. In the days after the announcement, we had enthusiastic inquiries from historians, philosophers, architects, museum curators, and humanities councils. My coeditor, the acquisitions editor at the press, and I find ourselves using phrases such as "pent-up demand" to explain the outpouring of interest. We are all the more encouraged because neither the term "public" nor "humanities" offers much clarity these days. Not everyone connects the dots among these sometimes overlapping, sometimes alienated cultures. That's what we hope this series will do. More

Rauschenberg's Foundation Could Outspend Warhol's
Art Newspaper    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation intends to increase the scale of its operations dramatically over the next fifteen years. By then it will be one of the largest grant-making bodies for the visual arts in the United States, distributing as much, if not more, money every year than the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. The Rauschenberg Foundation will also fund international artists, support philanthropic ventures, and run a project space in New York and an artist residency in Captiva Island, Florida, where the artist lived until his death in 2008.

Abstract Art: How Are Artists Visualizing the Financial Crisis?
Frieze    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In a time of financial crisis, the relationship between art and economics has never been more urgent than today. Artists who are interested in responding to the crisis face numerous challenges. Many of these are straightforwardly visual: how best to represent or comment on abstract economic systems? Through data-driven text pieces, Brechtian agitprop, or direct market "interventions" as practiced by Damien Hirst at Sotheby's in 2008? More

Art Makes a Statement for Business, Too
New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The artwork that organizations choose for their buildings, or for their grounds, is as important as the art that people select for their homes. Corporate buyers are looking to complete their space in an interesting way. They also select paintings, photography, and sculptures for their employees' enjoyment and to project a certain image. Some view their art as an extension of their corporate work life. I enjoy the challenge of coming up with a plan that reflects what a client wants to say about itself. More

Data Storm
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
It started with an announcement in February that a University of Georgia instructor would start a crowdsourcing project to find out more about the working conditions and salaries of adjuncts. Last month, a graduate student at the University of North Carolina in Greensboro announced that she was attempting something similar for graduate student employees. Both projects are attempts at gathering information—on the salaries of adjuncts and graduate students—where rigorously researched data is difficult to come by. More

The Canada Council for the Arts, an organization that provides both operating funding and special grants to arts groups, saw its funding maintained. More
