Emory University Eradicates Its Visual Arts Department, Portending an Ominous Trend in University Education
Art and Education    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Late in the day on Friday, September 14, Robin Forman, dean of Emory College of Arts and Sciences, released a letter to the college community stating that Emory University would be closing several departments in visual arts, educational studies, physical education, and journalism.

Diversify or Die: Why the Art World Needs to Keep Up with Our Changing Society
Blouin Artinfo    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
President Obama's reelection has put a blazing spotlight on the "emerging majority" thesis, thrusting it into the center of political discussion. As the Economist put it, "The GOP must become younger and browner to remain a serious contender." Would it surprise you to know that, on this score at least, the liberal-leaning art world has more in common with Republicans than Democrats? Cosmopolitan New York is a majority minority city and has been for as long as anyone can remember. But walk from the subway toward any gallery opening or museum party and watch the color drain away.

Take-Aways from the World's First International Teaching Artist Conference
Teaching Artist Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In late August 2012, 130 eager individuals gathered for three days in Oslo, Norway, for the World's First International Teaching Artist Conference. Representatives came from twenty-three countries, some with a clear sense professional identity as a "teaching artist," others with mere curiosity about the term, all with a mix of experience and uncertainty about the hybrid way art and education combine and live in different cultures around the world. The delegations from the United States and Norway were larger than those from other nations, understandably, as the host country and the nation with the most developed history of teaching artistry. Perhaps we had the most to learn. More

Gold, Golden, Gilded, Glittering: Representations of Value, or the Unexpected Double History of Banking and the Art World
The Believer    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
We have long entrusted the task of representing our ideas of value to members of two professions that might seem to have little in common: banking and art. There is more than a shadow of resemblance between the purchase of the Damien Hirst diamond-encrusted skull in 2007 and the mortgage-backed-securities debacle that made of Lehman Brothers in the following year one of the great public pictures of vanitas we've had. And, when you look further into these intersections, you often find that what is really at stake is a change in the way we feel and understand time. More

The Debate over Copyright Reform Cannot Be Censored
Public Knowledge    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
This past Friday, the House Republican Study Committee released a policy brief entitled "Three Myths about Copyright Law and Where to Start to Fix It." The brief examines three common content industry assertions about the benefits of copyright and concludes that rather than promoting productivity and innovation, current copyright law inhibits them. The brief then makes a number of suggestions to reform the system, including reducing statutory damages, expanding fair use, punishing copyright abuse, and shortening copyright terms significantly.
