Ethical Living: Can Art Be Environmentally Friendly?
Guardian    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
It's true: the visual arts do not always produce the prettiest of pictures. There are lashings of toxic pigments, solvents, petrochemicals, formaldehyde, and other ecologically destructive preservatives thrown into the mix of a working studio.

Such materials were heavily polluting and hazardous to more than just the artist using them. More

From Massachusetts to Muqarnas

Walter Denny, senior consultant to the Metropolitan Museum of Art's new Islamic galleries, was my first art-history professor at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst.

What’s their agenda? Is there a catch?” Madan recalled Tuesday, inaugurating the partnership between Google and two Indian museums in New Delhi. More

Out of Adversity, Visions of Life

Cities like Abidjan, Dakar in Senegal, and Bamako in Mali are saturated in it, but the elements that in the West make a healthy contemporary scene—galleries, museums, collectors, journals, critics, and a steady, responsive audience—are in short supply.
