caa.reviews Celebrates Fifteenth Anniversary with New Series
CAA News
On the occasion of its fifteenth anniversary, caa.reviews launched a new series: Re-Views: Field Editors’ Reflections. To be authored by members of the journal's Council of Field Editors, the series will provide a locus for editors to reflect upon their respective fields as seen through the lens of the reviews they have commissioned. The first essay in the series, titled "Reflections on Photography," is by the field editor for photography and editorial-board member Tanya Sheehan (Department of Art, Colby College). In this essay Sheehan assesses the topics, methodologies, and debates current in publications about photography over the past several years. Themes she addresses include the global reach and significance of photography, political considerations, the play between "art" and "vernacular" in photography studies, and future directions for the field.

Leonardo da Vinci Painting Lost for Centuries Found in Swiss Bank Vault
The Telegraph
It was lost for so long that it had assumed mythical status for art historians. Some doubted whether it even existed. But a 500-year-old mystery was apparently solved today after a painting attributed to Leonardo da Vinci was discovered in a Swiss bank vault.

Is Art to Blame for Gentrification?
The Guardian
Bold Tendencies is the art space and cocktail bar standing imperiously on top of a Peckham multistory car park. It is charged with so much architectural symbolism it's almost funny: a sky-high contemporary gallery in one of London's poorest districts, packed each evening with painfully well-dressed young white people supping Campari bitters, who gaze down upon the streets of pound shops, mobile phone stalls, and cheap clothes stores below.

Are Artists to Blame for Gentrification?
Slate
The current narrative—in newsrooms, in think tanks, in studios and galleries—has art at the bleeding edge of urban transformation. But this narrative is wrong—or at least it keeps getting told in the wrong way. In the 1960s, shortly after the term "gentrification" was coined by the British sociologist Ruth Glass, the experimental art guru George Maciunus converted the large spaces in deindustrialized SoHo into artist cooperatives and live/work spaces, touching off its ultimate conversion into the gleaming nexus of air-brushed boutiques and tony restaurants that it is today. City leaders were so impressed that they wanted to do it again, and ever since the magical power of art to make over cities has been a key talking point.

Making It Past the First Round
Chronicle of Higher Education
For a high school basketball coach, the hardest part of the job is making the cuts—especially when there are more deserving kids than uniform jerseys, and the differences between the fifteenth player and the sixteenth are minuscule. But when you walk into the gym on the first day of tryouts and see the dozens of hopefuls, most of whom have no chance of making the team, all you want to do is eliminate as many as possible, as quickly as possible, so you can get down to the hard work of making a final roster. I've experienced similar feelings as a search-committee member, looking at 150 or more applications for three or four full-time positions.

Digital Takeover: Not If but When
Art Newspaper
We are so accustomed to the big, glossy, full-color art book that it seems that this tool of art history, not to mention the art trade, has been with us forever. But books of this kind only really took off following the revolution in color printing that happened soon after the First World War. Now, thanks to the inexorable march of technology, things are changing again. Digital art books are becoming inevitable, for pretty much the same reasons that the printed book replaced the medieval illuminated manuscript.
