Intellectual Development vs. Jobs?
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Spurred by a "Why are you in college?" discussion I held with my Penn State composition students one day late last semester when rumors swirled of potential state education funding cuts and tuition hikes, an enthusiastic freshman majoring in journalism and English came to my office to "talk about her future." She's a good writer, works hard, and speaks up a few times per class. She got right to the point: "Can I get a job with an English degree?" More

Arts Conferences: Too Much Talk and No Action?
Guardian    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A group of like-minded people gathered in one place could put serious weight behind something and make a practical difference. However, many of the recent events I've attended have not taken advantage of this fact. These events have, at best, been a showcase of great work without much other content and, at worst, been mutual commiserating or backscratching. More

Art: Evoking 9/11 a Tricky Business for Creators
Toronto Star    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Ten years ago Janet Cardiff, one of Canada's best-known artists, installed her stirring piece The Forty Part Motet at PS1, the Museum of Modern Art's cutting-edge contemporary annex in the borough of Queens. It was part of a career survey the museum had launched, and the work was a highlight and a centerpiece. Cardiff had made the piece earlier that year as an exploration of our experience of the sublime in a technologically driven, highly mediated world. On that awful morning in September 2011, it became something else entirely. More

Chinese Dissident Ai Weiwei Launches Scathing Attack on Government
Reuters    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The dissident Chinese artist Ai Weiwei has launched his first scathing attack on his country's government since his release from secretive detention in late June, accusing officials of denying citizens their basic rights. In a strongly worded commentary published on the website of Newsweek magazine, Ai—whose detention sparked an international outcry—said the capital Beijing was "a city of violence." He criticized the government for rampant corruption, its judicial system, and its policy on migrant workers—issues that have inflamed social tensions in China. More

Serota Splashes Tate Cash—To Cut Galleries' Costs

Staff at the Tate galleries are furious about the use of two external consultants who have made £750,000 of savings, describing their techniques as "psychobabble" whose only purpose is to force through job cuts. One of the consultants, Dee Candlin, says in her online CV that she achieved "effectiveness and efficiency goals" while working at the organization. Her counterpart, Claire Antrobus, writes on her personal website that she is working at Tate Liverpool to "develop the organization and its business model to become increasingly visitor-focused."

Outsmarting Alfred Barnes
Philanthropy    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Albert Barnes was a brilliant man. As a student, he emerged from one of Philadelphia's toughest neighborhoods, eventually earning a medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania. As an entrepreneur, he made a fortune through the mass production of antiblindness medicine. As an art enthusiast, he amassed one of the world's finest collections of Postimpressionist and modern art. As a philanthropist, he created a school—not a museum—where some of the world's finest paintings were studied in strict accordance with Barnes's self-designed pedagogical principles. All in all, the same brilliance that created a legacy for Barnes would ultimately undo his legacy. More
