The Great Debate: Why Galleries Could Take Even More Money from Their Artists
Art Newspaper
The cultural researcher and Larry's List cofounder Magnus Resch concluded, based on a survey of eight thousand art galleries in the US, UK, and Germany, that running an art gallery is tough, with more than half turning over less than $200,000 a year and 30 percent running in the red. It's his solutions—many of them classic business techniques—that have whipped up the debate. None more so than the suggestion that most artists should be paid only 30 percent of sales, not the traditional 50/50 split.

Fixing Grad School
Inside Higher Ed
Talk about graduate school being broken is beginning to sound like a broken record. Yes, it's too focused on preparing students to become the tenure-track professors that populate academe's endangered-species list. Yes, the better part of a decade is probably too long to spend as an apprentice, forgoing a living wage and likely accruing debt. And yes, too many people never finish. So now what?

Clearing Up Ambiguity
New York Review of Books
So what is it about ambiguity that it has to be praised to high heaven by all and sundry? Above all, how did it come to take on, at least for some, a cloak of liberal righteousness, to shift from being an aesthetic to a moral virtue, as if the text that wasn't clear, that didn't state its preferences clearly, were ethically superior to the text that does. In every other sphere of expression, ambiguity is a flaw.

Part of Your World: On the Arts and Well-Being
Createquity

Spend any time reading up on arts policy and philanthropy or attending conferences in the arts and you'll see plenty of attention devoted to all of these topics and more.

Inquiry: Art History for All
Apollo
That an art history–trained graduate has highly desirable and eminently transferable skills across a range of art and nonart professions ought to be good news for art history going forward, especially as there is evidence that the areas of the UK economy related to culture are growing faster than others, and outperforming the economy as a whole.

The ABC of Art Criticism: Some Recent How-Tos
Hyperallergic
It has often been said that writing about art is like dancing about architecture. Nearly as often, it has also been said: But I'm going to do it anyway. Whether or not the dance analogy captures all the futilities and elations of the endeavor, writing about art, experience proves, is an activity unlikely to abate. Indeed, as art's institutional and popular reach has grown ever more expansive in the early twenty-first century, the proliferation of adjunct written discourses has perhaps never been greater.

The Meaning of "Inclusiveness" in a Job Ad
Vitae
Lots of job ads for faculty positions include a sentence along these lines: "Inclusiveness and diversity are academic imperatives and thus are university goals, and your letter should articulate how you will cultivate diversity on our campus."

How to Be an Adjunct (and Also a Cliché)
Chronicle of Higher Education
Understand that behind the hierarchical sense of superiority there is a cowering insecurity among the tenured who are beginning to see themselves as the minority they are. Hear them throw around the phrases "student-centered learning" and "student concerns." Figure out "student-centered learning" is a euphemism for "good customer service," and "student concerns" means "faculty gossip." Realize all this language increasingly dehumanizes adjuncts and students.
