Fee Fry
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
What if job applicants had to pay a fee every time they applied for a job? Postdoctoral applicants in the humanities say they find themselves in a comparable situation, as some university departments are charging an application fee. Some irate applicants have been lighting up a discussion board on the internet to complain. While fees are the norm for applying to earn degrees, most say they are unusual for postdoctoral fellowships, which are jobs. More

Advanced x-ray technology has revealed an unfinished self-portrait by the seventeenth-century Dutch master Rembrandt van Rijn.

Taking Action for Contingent Faculty
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Recently, after my post about taking back higher education, there were a number of discussions on Twitter about what, if anything, the MLA should be doing on behalf of their non-TT members. We were pointed to the MLA's recommendations put together by their Committee on Contingent Labor in the Profession. The document focuses on departmental concerns that, while valid, fail to address the larger, more systematic issues in higher education that are the root cause of the exploitation of contingent faculty.

Possible Forging of Modern Art Is Investigated
New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Federal authorities are investigating whether a parade of paintings and drawings, sold for years by some of New York's most elite art dealers as the work of modernist masters such as Robert Motherwell and Jackson Pollock, actually consists of expert forgeries, according to people who have been interviewed or briefed by the investigators. Most of the works, which have sold individually for as much as $17 million, came to market though a little-known art dealer from Long Island, Glafira Rosales, who said she had what every gallery dreams of: exclusive access to a mystery collector's cache of undiscovered work by some of the postwar world's great talents.

Fall Issue of Spencer's Art Law Journal
Artnet.com    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The first essay in the Fall 2011 issue of Spencer's Art Law Journal deals with the nature of opinions about the authenticity of visual art. The second deals with a famous case of American import duties on "kitchen utensils," and whether a Brancusi sculpture fit this category. The judge's decision, relying on expert opinion to define art, altered the public's understanding of the meaning of modern art. More

Spreading the Word
Art Newspaper    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Often commercially unviable, visually underwhelming, and intellectually demanding, language-based art, particularly work rooted in the conceptual movement of the 1960s and 1970s, has traditionally been viewed as tricky to show at art fairs. But while certain works such as an Ian Wilson discussion piece—whose only physical manifestation might be a certificate documenting the date and location of the conversation—may intentionally prove problematic to sell, spoken and written word works have become a regular feature on the art-fair circuit.
