Dear Artists, Stop Turning in Bad Grant Applications (Part 1)
GrantSpace
Show of hands—how many of you who've applied for a grant or fellowship have turned in your application on the deadline day, right before the post office closed or the website shut down, after dashing off an unspellchecked artist's statement and recruiting friends to write your reference letters the night before?

Dear Artists, Stop Turning in Bad Grant Applications (Part 2)
GrantSpace
When panelists are reading through the material, this is the only impression we have of you. Often, the judging is blind and sourced from out of town. If not, and a panelist has a conflict of interest, they have to state that up front and inform the organization and withdraw themselves from the conversation about your work. So, typically your work will be reviewed and assessed by strangers.

Time to Change the Rules of Negotiation
Vitae
It is job-offer season, and lately I've received an inordinate number of inquiries related to "negotiating while female." In addition to the normal jitters that come with going back and forth on an offer, it seems lots of women have heard about the Nazareth College case and read the research that suggests they must play into gender stereotypes in order to secure competitive deals. For example, they have been told that they should make requests on behalf of others rather than themselves so as not to seem pushy or aggressive.

Should Art Respond to Science? On This Evidence, the Answer Is Simple: No Way
The Guardian
Physics—it really does your head in. That seems to be the less-than-enlightening message the Japanese visual artist and composer Ryoji Ikeda took from a residency at CERN in Geneva. Ikeda's installation Supersymmetry, staged in the darkened uppermost level of a multistory car park, is apparently what you get when you introduce an artist to the world's most advanced particle research institute and its renowned Large Hadron Collider: a lot of sound and light, signifying nothing.

Competing or Complementing: Art Loss Databases Proliferate
Center for Art Law
Stolen art seems to be ubiquitous and difficult to track. It is relatively easy to ship and sell around the world, and can remain easily hidden for decades. The owner faces the conflict of wanting to publicize the loss widely, while also keeping their personal lives private. The development of databases to record losses was first preceded by newsletter alerts of stolen art that proliferated in the arts community to halt sales with questionable provenance.

Three Quarters of New Collectors Buy Art Online for Investment, Study Finds
Art Newspaper
Collectors who buy art online are increasingly doing it for investment, according to a report released by the fine-art insurance company Hiscox. As many as 63 percent are driven by the value potential of works of art, with 75 percent of new buyers saying they buy art for investment. However, 93 percent of respondents say they collect for passion. Robert Read, the head of fine art at Hiscox, says rapid growth in the contemporary art market, coupled with a lack of options in other markets, is enticing people to "get on the art ladder."

Tax Break Used by Investors in Flipping Art Faces Scrutiny
New York Times
Introduced in the 1920s to ease the tax burden of farmers who wanted to swap property, it soon became a tool for real-estate investors flipping, say, office buildings for shopping malls. Now, this little-known provision in the tax code, known as a like-kind exchange, has become a popular tactic for a new niche of investors: buyers of high-end art who want to put off—and sometimes completely avoid—federal taxes when upgrading their Diebenkorns for Rothkos.
