Pacific Standard Time Makes a Bid for LA in Art History
Los Angeles Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
It seems worthy of an old-fashioned Hollywood epic, with a cast of thousands and a plot that spans four decades: "The Greatest Story Ever Told About Southern California Art." Over the next six months, more than sixty museums and arts venues from Santa Barbara to San Diego will feature exhibitions of postwar southern Californian art in an effort called Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945–1980. Organizers believe it's the biggest museum collaboration ever. More

Abuse of Trust?
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Less than a week after the University of Michigan brushed off a lawsuit by the Authors Guild over the university's move to make copyrighted orphan works in its digital collection freely available to students and faculty, the Michigan Library suspended the practice last week, admitting "serious" flaws in its process for identifying orphans. Friday's mea culpa followed a public flogging of the library and its nonprofit digital consortium, HathiTrust, at the hands of the Authors Guild, in which the guild quickly tracked down the owners of the copyrights on several works that HathiTrust had categorized as orphans—books and articles that are in copyright but whose copyright owners cannot be located or identified.

One Masterpiece Can Go a Long Way
Art Newspaper    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
There might be less money to organize exhibitions in many US museums, but by borrowing one masterpiece, putting it on display, and so turning a single work into a star attraction, several institutions are stretching their budgets a long way. The Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas, has borrowed Titian's La Bella, a 1536 portrait of a noblewoman in a blue dress, from the Galeria Palatina at the Palazzo Pitti in Florence. The painting will then travel to the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno and the Portland Art Museum in Oregon. More

Art Practice and the Doctoral Degree
Afterall    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Doctorates in art, where the assessment includes the submission of practical, creative work, have been offered in UK higher education for over fifteen years. Yet they are still surrounded by confusion and a nagging skepticism about their worth for art practice, so that one recent article suggests that they are part of "pernicious and misleading validation system." There is whiff of anti-intellectualism around some of these comments, especially since it hints of resentment toward artists who might gain further resources to resist the tutelage of professional critics, but as Adorno notes, the philistine asks the right question and art colleges and departments have not yet provided a good answer.

Museum Admission as an Expression of Mission
Glasstire    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
As a follow-up to my article, "Mind Games, Museums, and Suggested Donations," I've been looking into the ways that museums set their general admission prices. Discussions regarding museum admission often carry moral undertones. Recently, editorials have expressed the usual mild outrage at first the Met's and now MoMA's price hikes from $20 to $25. The sentiment is, "Museums should be free," or "Museums should always be affordable for all." But perpetual free (or cheap) admission is not intrinsic to the idea of the museum in the United States.

GOP Bill Would Give Congress Power to Veto National Monuments
Huffington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Our national morale has undoubtedly taken a hit from the lingering recession, but would we be willing to surrender national monuments to get back on track? Proponents of a new bill argue that protecting sometimes arbitrarily large heritage sites can stifle local economies; but would such a move run the risk of voting down the next Statue of Liberty? Recently, GOP lawmakers representing several Western states have been on the attack, attempting to pass a bill that would allow Congress to veto the president's designation of a national monument.

The Bias against Tradition
Wall Street Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Preservation of historically or aesthetically significant edifices is an ancient practice that once provoked little controversy. But as preservation's scope has widened from individual buildings to encompass districts from Colonial Annapolis in Maryland to Old Pasadena in California, it has become yet another cultural battleground. Much debate involves modernist architecture's role in landmark settings of a traditional character. Preservation professionals often advocate modernist additions to these settings, while at the grassroots level there is strong support for keeping the new work traditional. More

Portrait of the Artist: A Hike in Glen Finglas
Scotsman    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail
article
If you've just had a bad week at the office, then spare a thought for the nineteenth-century artist John Everett Millais, whose famous painting of the art critic and social commentator John Ruskin is now being celebrated by a new trail in the Trossachs. In 1853 Ruskin had commissioned Millais to paint a combined landscape and portraiture that they envisaged would revolutionize British art—but Ruskin proved a hard taskmaster. More

Before Facebook Censors Us, We'll Do It Ourselves
Art Newspaper    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Fotografiska, the Swedish-based photography museum, says that it has been forced to censor images on its Facebook pages to avoid them being deleted by the social-media giant. The museum, which is devoted to contemporary photography, is showing two hundred works by Robert Mapplethorpe. His oeuvre presents difficulties because of its focus on the nude; according to the museum's spokesman, Facebook "dislikes nakedness whether it is in paintings or photography." More
