The Election and the Future of the NEA
Barry's Blog    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The election has everyone on a high anxiety level. No matter which one is your guy, you wonder: will he win, how will the swing states go? Is Hurricane/Tropical Storm Sandy a game changer in terms of voter turnout? Will Latinos and young people turn out? Will women support the GOP? It's a cliffhanger and the country is on edge—waiting, nervously. More

From Muse to Moneymaker: A Brighter Picture for Women in Art
CNN    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
From Andy Warhol's silkscreens of Marilyn Monroe to Pablo Picasso's nudes, it has generally been easier for women to be the subject of paintings than to have their own work exhibited. In 1989, when the New York feminist collective Guerrilla Girls began counting how many works in New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art were by women, less than 5 percent of the artists in its modern section were female. But the art world looks set to change its stubbly face and shows increasing signs of recognition for the value and stature of leading female artists. More

Doyen of American Critics Turns His Back on the "Nasty, Stupid" World of Modern Art
Guardian    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
One of America's foremost art critics has launched a fierce attack on the contemporary art world, saying anyone who has "read a Batman comic" would qualify for a career in the industry. Dave Hickey, a curator, professor, and author known for a passionate defense of beauty in his collection of essays The Invisible Dragon and his wide-ranging cultural criticism, is walking away from a world he says is calcified, self-reverential, and a hostage to rich collectors who have no respect for what they are doing.

Top 10 Reasons NOT to Write about the Art Market—Because It's Porn, Number One
Stranger    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In 2008, the sociologist Sarah Thornton came out with the book Seven Days in the Art World, which was a softball look at segments of the art world. Now she's done something quite different, something like a manifesto, for the curator Francesco Bonami's magazine TAR. She's written a piece called "Top 10 Reasons NOT to Write about the Art Market."

US Returns Four Thousand Archaeological Relics to Mexico
CBC News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
More than four thousand archaeological artifacts looted from Mexico and seized in the United States were recently returned to Mexican authorities in what experts say is one of the largest repatriation ever made between the neighboring countries. The items mostly date from before European explorers landed in North America and include items from hunter-gatherers in Precolumbian northern Mexico, such as stones used to grind corn, statues, figurines, and copper hatchets, said Pedro Sanchez, president of the National Archaeological Council of Mexico.

How Contemporary Art Lost Its Glamour
Standpoint    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Suddenly, the press dares to criticize contemporary art. A number of coinciding events seems to have focused a new, less-reverential attitude toward the spin of the art world. Damien Hirst's retrospective at Tate and Anish Kapoor's tower for the Olympics have born the brunt of criticism in London. The same strange thing happened in the United States, over Maurizio Cattelan's exhibition at the Guggenheim—last year a darling, this year a dud. It is not Hirst and Kapoor, or Cattelan who have changed; it is we ourselves. We have not been disappointed; we have become disillusioned. But how? And why now? More

At the Walters, Revealing the African Presence in Renaissance Europe
Washington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
By the end of a new exhibition at the Walters Art Museum, the viewer is put in a position similar to that of an old-fashioned racist of a century ago: scrutinizing faces and hair for signs of "blackness," as if the truth of every portrait is lurking in the complexion of its subject, as if all that matters is whether hair kinks or curls, and whether full lips and flat noses are just variations from the European mean, or telltale signs of African heritage. Revealing the African Presence in Renaissance Europe will make you a race detective, in a way that is at first unsettling. More

Under One Picasso, Another
New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
For years conservators and art historians have known that hidden beneath the surface of Pablo Picasso's Woman Ironing (1904), long considered an example of his Blue Period, is the upside-down ghost of another painting—a three-quarter-length portrait of a man with a mustache that was first seen in images taken with an infrared camera in 1989. But the big questions—who the man was, and even whether it was Picasso who painted him—have remained unanswered. More
