New York Times
Thomas Piketty is a name on a lot of people's lips at the moment. The French economist's new book, Capital in the Twenty-First Century, is a historic survey of wealth concentration that has quickly become a go-to text for the gathering debate on income inequality.

The World's Most Influential MFA Programs, Part 2
Artspace Magazine
You may have noticed that our recent survey of ten of the world's most influential MFA programs was heavily focused on the United States. That's because we're patriots. But numerous other art schools around the world have also made enormous impacts on the history of art, yielding generations of exalted alumni, boasting world-class faculty, and operating on a totally different scale and historical timeframe than schools of the US model.

Detroit Free Press
As legal jockeying continues in Detroit's bankruptcy, the city and the Detroit Institute of Arts have jointly hired a New York art investment firm whose personnel could be called as expert witnesses to push back against creditors trying to force a sale of art in court. Artvest Partners, a company that advises attorneys, dealers, insurers, and collectors, has been engaged to provide a price range for the entire 66,000-piece collection at the city-owned museum and assess the viability and practicality of selling art or otherwise monetizing the collection.

Shopkeepers of the World Unite
Artforum
One evening last summer, far from New York City, I was cornered by a senior curator from a prestigious arts institution. The woman, who was urbane, stylish, and in her late thirties, had a pressing question. "You live in Los Angeles," she noted. "Can you tell me, is Petra Cortright a feminist?" I squirmed as I considered how to avoid falling into this trap.

Applying Rules of All Markets to Art
Edward Winkleman
There's a sentiment afloat in this frothy art market that rampant flipping and other practices among the creators, buyers, and sellers of art that were perhaps previously considered questionable are in fact entirely ethically neutral. This fairly widespread sentiment, that ethics don’t come into this matter, relies heavily on the assertion that such practices are entirely in line with the well-established rules of any market, and that art is no different from any other commodity and never has been.

A Dereliction of Duty
Wall Street Journal
In London, on June 17, Christie's, the international auction house, will be offering for sale a painting by the English Pre-Raphaelite artist William Holman Hunt. Entitled Isabella and the Pot of Basil, it carries a presale estimate of $8.4 million to $13.4 million. Such sales—and such prices—are commonplace in today's overheated art market. This one, however, is different because the seller, the Delaware Art Museum, is an institution that holds one of the finest collections of Pre-Raphaelite art outside Britain. Why would it choose to part with a work of such quality?

A Study Shows How Audiences Are Changing, but Should Data Guide Artistic Decisions?
LA Weekly
No facet of society—not even the arts—is immune to the conversation about metrics, measurement, and big data. Last week in downtown Los Angeles, museum administrators, marketers, and cultural leaders gathered at the Walt Disney Concert Hall for the presentation of "Culture Track 14," hosted by the Music Center. Billed as revealing a "dramatically changed cultural landscape," the 2014 study—and the conversations around it—drove home many particulars that audience members already assumed and other dynamics long at play.
