Help Desk: Curating Like a Fool
Daily Serving
I'm an artist and art writer and would like to complete the trifecta by seriously trying to curate. However, since I've only been on the curated side of the table, I know embarrassingly little about the nitty-gritty of it. For example, when I have a proposal ready, do I inform the proposed artists of my intentions before or after I submit the proposal?

Are Video Games the Next Great Art Form?
Pacific Standard
In 2005, the late film critic Roger Ebert created a storm of controversy when he wrote that video games could never be art. While Ebert wasn't the first person to address the subject, he was one of the first mainstream critics to do so, and his statement set off a rash of essays, blog posts, and talks arguing for (few) and against (many) his position.

DIA in Peril: A Look at the Museum's Long, Tangled Relationship with Detroit Politics and Finances
Detroit Free Press
Anyone who thinks that art and politics inhabit separate spheres within civic life need only explore the roller-coaster history of the Detroit Institute of Arts. The latest example, of course, is Detroit's bankruptcy. The crisis, which has attracted international attention, could cripple—or kill—one of America's finest encyclopedic art museums, the signature cultural institution not only in Detroit but for the state of Michigan.

Responding to Negative Feedback about Your Art
Red Dot Blog
I recently had an email conversation with an artist who had just been through battle on her blog. After years of extensive blogging, she received her first negative comment, an inflammatory comment about a post she had written with some derogatory comments about her art thrown in for good measure. The level of vitriol in the comment was a bit dumbfounding, especially since it didn’t seem to be coming from a dissatisfied customer, rather from a random visitor to the site who wouldn't seem to have any good reason to be so ... blunt.

Museum Jobs That Didn't Exist in 2003
Center for the Future of Museums
Many of these new positions, whether or not they are grounded in new technologies, reflect deeper changes in organizational focus and culture. When the Victoria and Albert Museum appoints Sophia George as their first game designer in residence, it acknowledges that gaming has become a new literacy through which people can connect with museum content. When the Worcester Art Museum hires Adam Rozan as director of audience engagement and the Oakland Museum of California engages Lisa Sasaki as director of audience and civic engagement, it signals a subtle but profound shift in organizational focus.

The Adjunct Advantage
Inside Higher Ed
A major new study has found that new students at Northwestern University learn more when their instructors are adjuncts than when they are tenure-track professors. The study—released by the National Bureau of Economic Research—found that the gains are greatest for the students with the weakest academic preparation. And the study found that the gains extended across a wide range of disciplines. The authors of the study suggest that by looking at measures of student learning, and not just course or program completion, their work may provide a significant advance in understanding the impact of non-tenure-track instructors.

Belittled Women
Frieze
One recent afternoon, a gallerist visiting from the United States walked into the office of an established London gallery, openly accessible from the exhibition space. "Hello girls," he said in greeting to the two young women who were working at adjacent desks. The visitor (male, white, middle-aged) assumed that these "girls" (female, white, seemingly in their 20s) were not gallerists, but rather gallerinas.

Technology Sheds Light on Six Great Art Mysteries
National Geographic
Beneath the familiar faces of hundreds of paintings lining the walls of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, a host of secrets sit, waiting to be discovered. Whether a Picasso or Leonardo, every canvas holds brushstrokes that might conceal something else: a secondary painting, perhaps, or a mystery waiting to be untangled by John Delaney, the museum's senior imaging scientist. On a typical day, he patiently places a painting in front of a specialized camera and completes a scan, which will reveal not just what's under the paint, but also what is happening at each layer of paint that lies under the surface.

The Conversations We're Not Having—Overcoming Uncertainty, Chilling Effects, and Open-Access Complacency
Scholarly Kitchen
On more than one occasion in the past year, I've overheard a publisher or librarian note that there is an important topic in the library world, one that has major implications for libraries' futures, and for librarianship in general. Yet, these observers have noted, very few librarians are willing to publicly discuss this topic. The topic is how open access threatens to defund libraries and marginalize their librarians and staffs.
