If I Were a Scholarly Publisher
EDUCAUSE    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Given the currently dire and highly unpredictable budget environment for higher education, 2010 is a rather frightening time to be a librarian. For the same reasons, this must be an absolutely terrifying time to be a scholarly publisher. Scholarly publishers are looking at libraries right now and seeing what has always been the best and most reliable market for their products suddenly changing into a highly unreliable one. More

When Creator and Owner Clash
The Wall Street Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In July, David Ascalon filed a lawsuit in a U.S. District Court against the Parks and Recreation Department of Harrisburg, Pa., the Jewish Federation, and the restorer of his Holocaust memorial for violating his moral rights. The artist, an Israeli-born sculptor living in Cherry Hill, N.J., who had lost his grandparents and other family members to the Nazis, claims the defendants violated the Visual Artists Rights Act, or VARA, which prevents the owners of artworks of "recognized stature" from destroying or altering them without the artist's approval.

Win for Researcher Rights
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A Virginia judge blocked Virginia's attorney general from demanding information about the research projects conducted by a former faculty member at the University of Virginia. While the ruling was praised by the former faculty member and the university, there are signs that the academic freedom issues raised in the dispute have not been settled and that more legal fights await on the question of just how much information state officials can demand on the research of faculty members at public universities.

Eadweard Muybridge: Feet Off the Ground
The Guardian    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
He transformed photography and laid the foundations for motion pictures, but Eadweard Muybridge has always been dogged by controversy. His biographer, Rebecca Solnit, defends the great innovator against a new campaign of innuendos. This summer, 128 years after he was driven out of London in humiliation, Kingston upon Thames's most prodigal son and San Francisco's most extraordinary photographer gets his due with a big show of his photographs at Tate Britain.

Antics Aside, a Dalí of Constant Ambition
The New York Times    Share    Share on
FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Salvador Dalí's late work started unusually early. He was born in 1904 and soon displayed a precocious skill for ultra-refined hyperrealism. By the late 1920s he had painted some of the smallest, most peculiar masterpieces of Surrealism. Within a decade he was widely seen as having entered — again precociously — a decline that became ever more precipitous, exacerbated by relentless self-promotion, shameless hucksterism and a fervent return to Roman Catholicism."Dalí: The Late Work" at the High Museum of Art here largely lays waste to the presumption that late Dalí is bad Dalí, and that most Dalí is late.

Is Art a Hedge Against Inflation?
The Art Newspaper    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A recent swathe of auction records has led, as in 2004, to speculation that the rich may once again be treating art as an investment vehicle. Major records include Giacometti's L'Homme Qui Marche I, 1960, which sold for £65m at Sotheby's London in February, Picasso's Nu au Plateau de Sculpteur, 1932 — the world's most expensive work of art — sold in May, for $106.4 million at Christie's New York, and Rubens' Portrait of a Commander, around 1612-14, sold for £9m at Christie's London.

Los Angeles Artists Fight to Save City's Legacy of Murals
The Associated Press via Google News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Every so often, Ernesto de la Loza drives around the city to check on the state of his murals. It's a short tour these days. Out of 42 swirling, vivid pieces he's painted, only seven remain, the rest lost to graffiti, whitewash and withering sun. At one time hosting an estimated 1,500 pieces of wall art, Los Angeles is the nation's mural capital, but that's a fading distinction thanks to prolific graffiti taggers, a legal morass over classifying the artworks as illegal signs, and neglect.

Solidarity vs. Contingency
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The single most important structural change in higher education over the last two generations has been the massively increased reliance on faculty teaching intensively in contingent positions — 33 percent in 1975, 66 percent 30 years later in 2005, roughly 70 percent now. No other reform means anything unless we can obtain job security and academic freedom for the majority of college teachers. It will require solidarity from tenured faculty. More
