Democrats Lobby for US Artists' Economic Rights with Two Bills
Art Newspaper
Two bills introduced in Congress aim to improve the lives of artists. One proposal seeks to bring droit de suite, also known as the artist's resale royalty, to the United States. The other encourages artists to donate their own work to museums by allowing them to deduct the works' fair market value from their taxes. Both bills have been proposed repeatedly in recent years but have never successfully passed into law.

The Four-Hour Art Week? Read Carol Bove's Self-Help Guide for Artists
Artspace Magazine
The sculptor Carol Bove likes to play with associations and forms as she builds her assemblages of constructed and readymade objects. Time and space to experiment are crucial elements of her process, as is a certain psychological sovereignty—Bove writes that "creating a nonpurposive, free space in which to play and have fun is essential." Here, the Brooklyn-based artist gives her best advice for finding happiness (rather than "succeeding") as an artist, excerpted in its entirety from the new book AKADEMIE X: Lesson in Art + Life.

Ten Techniques from Professional Artists for Breaking through Creative Blocks
Fast Company
Danielle Krysa had a successful career as a creative director for an advertising and branding agency in Canada. She was proud of her professional work but was secretly making her own art on the side. Krysa didn't talk about her creative work with the same bravado that she approached her professional work. She rarely showed anyone what she was making and often felt a rush of jealousy when coming across the work of artists she admired.

Are Algorithms Conceptual Art's Next Frontier?
Artsy
In recent years, algorithms have been telling us what music to listen to, who we should date, what stocks we should buy, and even what we should eat. It comes as no surprise, then, that it should also tell us what art we should view. But what happens when the art we are looking at becomes the algorithm itself?

There's a Game for That: Teaching Art History with "Reacting to the Past"
Art History Teaching Resources
When faculty facilitate involvement in activities such as simulations and games, and when students work collaboratively through role play and debate, deeper learning and transfer occurs. As part of my efforts to include more active and student-centered learning opportunities into my courses and to encourage knowledge, skills, and attitudes that support higher-order thinking tasks such as analysis, synthesis, and evaluation, I added a "Reacting to the Past" role-playing game to my introductory-level art-history course.
