Fame, Fortune, and the Female Artist
Huffington Post
I have collected art, and been involved with artists and the art world, for almost fifty years. Through all that time, I have wondered why female artists have less success, fewer exhibitions, and less attention than male artists. I own works by women artists; it is hard for me to see, literally to see, how women and men differ in the quality of their work. Why are women artists less known and less admired?

Vernacular Criticism
New Inquiry
Yelp does a lot of things, including a number of things that make people hate it. But one thing it does is provide a platform for vernacular art criticism, a different kind of writing about art and the public spaces where it is seen. Vernacular criticism can reject the guidelines set by cultivated artistic tastes, or it can guilelessly speak in ignorance of them, or in its naïve fascination with them can inadvertently expose their falseness.

Are MFAs Ruining Art?
Artsy
This summer has seen another bumper year of MA and MFA students. As ever, the work coming from international art schools is good, bad, and everywhere in between. There is also an increasing professionalization of the artists coming from the academic system. Degree-show presentations can resemble solo booths at art fairs. Often the work presented is ready to slip immediately into the gallery system. The question remains: Is this a good thing?

Spotting a Bad Adviser—and How to Pick a Good One
Chronicle of Higher Education
Universities have a lot of names for the professor who works with a graduate student on a thesis or dissertation and later signs off on it. The main titles are "adviser," "director," and, more rarely, "sponsor." Some universities, including my own, call a professor in this position a "mentor." I like "adviser" because I think that's the best description of the job when it's being done well.

Low Pay, Monotonous Work: Are Artist Assistant Positions Worth the Trouble?
Gallerist
In the course of a normal workday, Sharela Bonfield may order supplies, supervise interns, clean, answer the telephone, arrange meetings, create PowerPoint displays, handle paperwork, administer archives, and do "whatever else needs to be done." It is difficult to say exactly what Bonfield's job actually is, because she has so many responsibilities, but her title is clear enough: artist's assistant.

I Didn't Get the Job. Can I Ask Why?
Vitae
If you made it to the campus-visit stage, then yes, in my opinion, you can contact the search-committee chair or department chair and ask for some feedback on your candidacy. But there's a caveat: you have to stick to general, nondesperate sorts of questions. Questions like: "I would like to ask if you can provide any feedback on my materials or visit that would provide insight as I move forward in my job search."
