When It's Illegal to Photograph Artwork
The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Who hasn't walked into a local gallery, been shocked by how expensive all the pieces are and then walked out empty-handed? Thoughts start to wonder what is a cheaper workaround to the situation: taking a picture of the painting (or even of a postcard of the painting) and then blowing up the reproduction. More

Things I Wish I Had Known
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The process associated with obtaining tenure and promotion has become increasingly complex in the university environment today. Consequently, it is essential for new faculty members in higher education, particularly junior faculty, to cultivate every scholarship, teaching and service opportunity available to them at the university, college and department level.

How Much Work Is Too Much to Install?
Edward Winkleman    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
I'm a big believer in "a little goes a long way" or "less is more" when it comes to how much work to include in a gallery installation. As long as it doesn't affect an artist's concept, how much work you "should" install for any given show is best guided by one hard and fast rule — the show as a whole must work and look as good as it can. I use this rule to guide me when, in the thick of it, it's hard to decide whether that last piece stays or goes. More



A Truly Bookless Library
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The difference between the University of Texas at San Antonio's Applied Engineering and Technology Library and other science-focused libraries is not that its on-site collection is also available electronically. It is that its on-site collection is only available electronically. More

A False Sense of Security
Art News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Cancer, heart attack, lead poisoning, and emphysema. Diseases of the eyes, liver, kidneys, and nervous system. Is there no end to the health problems confronted by artists who work with hazardous materials? Maybe not, but rising concern about risky aspects of art making has brought safer products and practices to studios, workshops, and classrooms in an effort to prevent illness and injury. More

Artistic Expression, the First Amendment, and Copyright
Copyhype    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Defending People's Mark Bennett ran a tally of how many times each article and amendment (of the ten included in the Bill of Rights) in the Constitution was specifically mentioned in the week leading up to Constitution Day; the First Amendment was mentioned by bloggers nearly as many times as all others combined. But something is missing in the discussion about copyright and the First Amendment. For all the attention given to concerns of alleged infringes, there is scant attention devoted to concerns of infringes — artists and creators. More

What Can the Past Do for the Present?
Frieze    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Observer recently reported on the unexpected discovery and private purchase of a treasure trove of 500 paintings by the elderly, reclusive Italian artist Pordenone Montanari, which businessman Raja Khara stumbled upon when he viewed his house in Piedmont, which was up for sale. The paintings are said to show influences of Picasso, Braque, Bacon and Chagall, and, according to art historian and critic Edward Lucie-Smith, who was consulted about the collection, it 'blows apart the conventional story of the development of Italian postwar art'.
