Lobby Group Targets Presidential Conventions
Art Newspaper    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Americans for the Arts is lobbying for the cultural and creative industries at the Democratic and Republican presidential conventions. But even the loudest lobbyists may not be loud enough. At the Republican convention on August 28 in Tampa, Florida, and at the Democratic convention on September 4 in Charlotte, North Carolina, Americans for the Arts and three other organizations are holding a panel, "Arts Speak," at which politicians are expected to talk about the importance of arts education, the positive impact of arts jobs on local economies, and the funding of the National Endowment for the Arts.

The Democratic Convention: Obama and Higher Education
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Democratic National Convention began on September 4, but Democrats were already gathering over the weekend for sessions that will likely feature higher education in a more prominent role than was the case at the Republicans' gathering last week in Tampa. President Barack Obama, who will accept his party's nomination on Thursday night, has campaigned on his expansion of the Pell Grant and college tax credits as well as his proposals to make college more affordable. The party's platform, released on Monday night, reiterates those points. More

There Will Be Great Experience: On Labor in the Culture Industry
Title Magazine    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
I began working as a curatorial and research fellow at Slought Foundation in the summer of 2011. Fresh out of art school, I was lured by the organization's progressive ways of thinking about cultural engagement, publics, and economies and was ready to commit myself to a years worth of volunteer labor as a "fellow." The fact that I was not offered a salary, or at least a monthly stipend, baffled my peers, mentors, and parents. Why would I want to work for free? More

Fool's Gold and Gems
Wall Street Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Renaissance jewels and luxurious objects mounted in precious metal and embellished with gems are magnificent, princely treasures. In the nineteenth and the first half of the twentieth century, they were much in demand by the newly, hugely rich. Various Rothschilds led the vogue; among Americans, Henry Walters, Belle and Jack Linsky, Benjamin Altman, and Robert Lehman were avid collectors, too. But when the first solid documentary evidence of Renaissance fakes was published, in 1979, the market collapsed. The story didn't end there, however; new fakes continue to be discovered. More

Japanese Scientist Says Vincent van Gogh Was Colorblind—But Does It Matter?
Blouin Artinfo    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Could Vincent van Gogh's acidic sense of color and preference for bright, clashing hues be a result of colorblindness and not just an aesthetic judgment? An essay by Kazunori Asada, a Japanese medical scientist and poet, has recently come to the attention of science blogs drawn to its argument that the famous painter wasn't so much an artistic revolutionary as he was visually impaired. Asada's article was sparked by an experience in Hokkaido, Japan's "Color Vision Experience Room," an immersive simulator that makes it possible to perceive color the way people with different types of colorblindness might experience it. When Asada saw replicas of the artist's canvases, he had a revelation. More

Restoration Tragedies
Telegraph    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When Cecilia Gimenez, a woman in her eighties, took her paintbrushes to a nineteenth-century fresco of Christ in a church in the Spanish town of Borja, she thought there were parts of the picture that needed repainting. So she started retouching the original herself, bringing great enthusiasm and dedication to the task, utterly convinced her work would improve it. Professional restorers do not, of course, make the kind of crass and catastrophic blunders that Gimenez made. But if their interventions do not actually destroy far more important works of art than Elias Garcia Martinez's fresco, there is a growing consensus that they do not always improve them—and on occasion, they may seriously damage them.

Row over Berlin's Old-Master Plan
Art Newspaper    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A major row has broken out in the German press over plans to move Berlin's old-master collection from its current location. It has stemmed from a combination of badly handled communications and fears that great works of art might disappear for years into store. German art historians, conservators, and newspapers united to criticize plans to empty the Gemäldegalerie of its old masters for the sake of modern art. "Save the Gemäldegalerie!" was a headline that ran in four German newspapers. But the plan is beginning to find influential supporters, including Thomas Campbell, the director of New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. More
