Art Criticism Today
Chronicle of Higher Education    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
My husband, a painter and an art critic, cheerfully attended the annual meeting of the American section of the International Association of Art Critics. Yet he's always told me never to do what he's done—be both an artist and an art critic. Despite examples of the combo working out beautifully, he repeatedly warns me that artists who also write criticism face a serious drag on their studio time and, worse, end up fending off people who want nothing from them other than that they give up making their own art in favor of writing about some other artist, or curator's exhibition, or museum director's plans for the future.

The Rise of (Visual) Artists' Rights
NYFA Blog    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Copyright, contracts, trusts and estates, and intellectual property are only a few of the myriad legal issues facing artists today. For this post, I will focus on the Visual Artist Rights Act (VARA), an interesting piece of federal legislation passed in 1990. VARA has popped up in a few recent news stories and caught my attention. I wondered: Why does this legislation only apply to visual artists? Does VARA work in favor of artists? More

What Are Museums For?
Art Newspaper    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
People hold strong opinions about museums. Some assert that their primary function should be scholarship; others insist that it's more important to communicate with a wide audience. In pursuing either goal, should museums focus on exploring objects or investigating their contexts—are they about looking at things or telling stories? Adding to the debate, there's lingering anxiety about relativism; some think museums should strive to be objective; others relish a variety of views. More

Senior Editor at Princeton University Press Ponders the Future of Books
Town Topics    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The push-pull of Princeton University Press Senior Editor Fred Appel's recent talk about "The Future of the Book" with the Lunch and Learn group at the Princeton Jewish Center was evident in the day's headlines: amid much fanfare, the New York Public Library was celebrating its one hundredth anniversary, while a headline on the front page of the New York Times' business section declared that "E-Books Outsell Print Books at Amazon."

Helping Fine Artists Become Fine Teachers
Chronicle of Higher Education    Share    Share on
FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Students in the MFA program at Philadelphia's University of the Arts have a lot to do. They need to create a unified body of work; take a variety of studio, art history, and critical-theory classes; research and write a thesis; and, finally, produce an exhibition of their artwork. Some of them will also learn how to drop their sphincter. Perhaps we should explain. More

Artsy, Museum-going Men Are Happier, Study Says

Men who enjoy taking in the ballet or browsing art museums are more likely to be happy with their lives and satisfied with their health than men who don't enjoy the finer things in life, a new study finds. And although greater enjoyment of cultural activities is associated with higher income, the arts have a beneficial effect regardless of other factors that might influence health and happiness, including socioeconomic status.

Tale of Two Halves Reunited after a 360-year Separation
Independent    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The 660-year-old scroll Dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains is considered one of the masterpieces of Chinese painting, an elegant depiction of a slow-moving river, laden with Tao Buddhist symbolism. But now the painting by Huang Gongwang, who lived at the turn of the fourteenth century, has taken on another meaning, becoming a powerful symbol of how China is dealing with its past, and emblematic of a growing closeness between mainland China and its bitter rival, Taiwan. For decades a crucial section of the scroll has been sitting in a museum in China, while the majority of the painting is on display at Taiwan's National Palace Museum. More

Why They Move
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When times get tough, top talent goes elsewhere. That truism, while perhaps too simplistic to be applied widely, seems to be increasingly confronting many public universities, especially flagships, that have seen state support slashed or the political environment grow more tense and unpredictable. And, some say, the situation threatens to get worse. More
