Tennessee Supreme Court Clears Way for Fisk Art Sale
Tennessean    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Fisk University cleared what could be the last hurdle in a seven-year court battle to sell a $30 million stake in its famed art collection—a sale that one school trustee says it needs to survive. The Tennessee Supreme Court announced that it won't hear the state attorney general's appeal to keep the collection in Nashville full time, which sends the case back to Davidson County Chancery Court for little more than paperwork before the art can be sold.

Politics First on Student Loans
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The current debate over the student-loan interest rates is a perfect example of how crazy our national politics have become. Leaving aside the differences in how Democrats and Republicans would pay for continuing this questionable subsidy, both parties are striving to appeal to students in this election year by keeping interest rates low while ignoring the economic reality that this move will further balloon student debt and could lead to higher tuitions as well.

The Impermanent Book
Rhizome    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A few months ago, Jonathan Franzen, author of The Corrections and Freedom, was quoted by the Telegraph from his Cartagena's Hay Festival presentation. His speech raised heated discussions in newspaper columns and on the internet. The focus was mainly on defending technology and ebooks as a viable and improved evolution, and on how he was being retrograde. What was missing from the discourse was the fact that technology has also violently altered printed books in a way from which there is no return. We are so disconnected from the means of production that nobody seems to be aware that books are produced very differently then they were one hundred years ago. More

Does Occupy Signal the Death of Contemporary Art?
BBC News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
There has been so much art centered around the Occupy protests that it is beginning to feel like a new artistic movement. What defines it, and could it supplant the world of the galleries? We get in the van and speed along to Bed-Stuy. It is the New York equivalent of London's Shoreditch or Berlin's Prenzlauer Berg, a hipster submetropolis but with cuter beards. I am with the Illuminators—a group of performance artists whose art is to shine revolutionary logos onto buildings in support of the Occupy Wall Street protest, including one that has become iconic—the 99% logo, known to protesters as "the bat signal."

Art Is Long; Copyrights Can Even Be Longer
New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
It is there in the new 3D version of Titanic, as it was in James Cameron's original film: a modified version of Pablo Picasso's painting Les Demoiselles d'Avignon aboard the ship as it sinks. Of course that 1907 masterpiece was never lost to the North Atlantic. It has been at the Museum of Modern Art for decades—which is precisely the reason the Picasso estate, which owns the copyright to the image, refused Cameron’s original request to include it in his 1997 movie. But the director used it anyway. After Artists Rights Society, a company that guards intellectual-property rights for more than fifty thousand visual artists or their estates, including Picasso’s, complained, however, Cameron agreed to pay a fee for the right to use the image.
