Detroit Institute of Arts Embraces Challenge on Marketing Religion and Art
Detroit Free Press    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The marketing slogan "See Jesus in a New Light" made the cut, but "If Jesus Came to Detroit, Would You Go See Him?" did not. Promoting a household name like Rembrandt is a no-brainer for museums, but marketing Jesus is more complicated. The Detroit Institute of Arts' upcoming exhibition Rembrandt and the Face of Jesus combines the two historical figures, but finding ways to honor both Rembrandt's artistic genius and the profound spiritual meaning that Christ carries in the lives of believers has been one of the greatest marketing challenges the museum has ever faced.

Brooklyn Museum to Display Video Criticized as Anti-Christian
Reuters    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Brooklyn Museum said a controversial video artwork of ants crawling on a crucifix will be displayed despite lawmakers' complaints that it is anti-Christian and may endanger the institute's public funding. The images appear for roughly ten seconds in a four-minute-long edit of the film A Fire in My Belly, which was made in the late 1980s by the American artist David Wojnarowicz, who died in 1992 from an AIDS-related illness. The museum said the artwork is "an expression of the artist's outrage at indifference to human suffering during the early years of the AIDS crisis." More

Putting a Price on (Your) Art Takes Some Thought
Huffington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Deciding what price to put on artwork is one of the most difficult problems for lesser-known or "emerging" artists, since there is no obvious point of reference. The best way to establish one's market value—the price a collector is likely to pay—is by going to art fairs, art galleries, and other places where artworks of comparable size, imagery, and quality by artists of similar standing in the art world are sold.

Catholic Tastes: The Vatican Enters the World of Contemporary Art
Time    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
It wasn't the type of gift you would normally think of for an eighty-four-year-old pope best known for conservative theology and critiques of secular culture. Indeed, as Benedict XVI moved through the exhibition of contemporary art that had been installed in his honor—one work for each of the sixty years he has been a priest—there were times when he looked more than a little bemused.

Few Pacific Standard Time Shows Will Travel to Other Museums
Los Angeles Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
One sign of success for a museum exhibition is the willingness of other museums to host the show, bringing it to new audiences nationally or internationally. By that measure, many of the shows that make up Pacific Standard Time, however strong their reviews, are underachievers. Of sixty-plus exhibitions from San Diego to Santa Barbara that are part of this initiative, only a handful are confirmed to be traveling beyond California, and none is currently going to New York.
