Art Journal Artist's Project by Lee Anne Schmitt
CAA News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In her artist project for the Art Journal website, called "Outtakes: California Company Town," the filmmaker Lee Anne Schmitt narrates her experience making California Company Town (2008), an elegiac look at industry towns in southern California. Schmitt focuses her essay on the footage that landed on the cutting-room floor, creating a shadow portrait of a film within a film. She also reveals her own personal revelations and struggles working in a medium and with techniques that are becoming obsolete. More

The Bookless Library
New Republic    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
They are, in their very different ways, monuments of American civilization. The first is a building: a grand, beautiful Beaux-Arts structure of marble and stone occupying two blocks' worth of Fifth Avenue in midtown Manhattan. The second is a delicate concoction of metal, plastic, and glass, just four-and-a-half inches long, barely a third of an inch thick, and weighing five ounces. The first is the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, the main branch of the New York Public Library. The second is an iPhone. Yet despite their obvious differences, for many people today they serve the same purpose: to read books. And in a development that even just thirty years ago would have seemed like the most absurd science fiction, there are now far more books available, far more quickly, on the iPhone than in the New York Public Library.

Massive Online Learning and the Unbundling of Undergraduate Education
Benjamin Lima    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Is free online learning going to put traditional colleges out of business? For a college professor, it's hard to read the news these days and not worry about this threat. For one thing, the businesses of journalism, publishing, and music, all decimated by the internet, bear uncomfortable similarity to that of higher education. In each case, valuable intellectual property is threatened by free online copying and distribution. For another, the industries of health care, higher education, and (formerly) housing all share another uncomfortable similarity: in an era of stagnant household incomes, their costs are inexorably rising, leading to ever-increasing indebtedness. Simple arithmetic suggests that this can’t go on forever. As long as the cost of college keeps rising, the pressure to find a free, Napsterlike alternative is going to keep building. More

Debate: Should Artists Include Pricing on Their Websites?
Red Dot Blog    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
As I am discussing the internet and marketing online with artists, the question of whether or not an artist should include pricing information on their site often arises. I spend quite a bit of time looking at artists' websites, and from my observations most artists do not include pricing on their websites. I've also found that a good number of galleries don't include pricing information either. The lack of pricing information is always a little surprising to me, but perhaps it shouldn't be as there is a warm debate over the issue. More

Pinterest, Tumblr, and the Trouble With "Curation"
New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Years ago, in my penurious and somewhat traumatic twenties, I got into the habit of collecting interior-design magazines. My parents were splitting, and my family was scattering, and one day I picked up a copy of Elle Decor at an airport and suddenly felt as though I were teleported to Narnia. I didn't have a house or even the disposable income to purchase nonessentials that cost much more than magazines. But my family moved often when I was growing up, and my mother tried to mitigate this upheaval by reproducing our last house in each new house, while rigorously maintaining a standard of perpetual "magazine readiness." I guess it had a lingering effect. More

Good Intentions and Big Ideas: Feel Good Grants That Exploit Artists and Reduce Arts Funding
Hyperallergic    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The people behind the ZERO1 Fellowship got one thing right—"public policy is increasingly ill-equipped to manage a society with the kind of boundless creativity that technology like the Internet enables." What they seem to get wrong is the notion that this is a grant program that serves to directly benefit the arts, or at least one artist. More

Saying "No" at Midcareer
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Last year, sociologists tested the hypothesis that women do more service than their male counterparts at midcareer and found significant gender gaps in both service work (women do more of it) and advancement to full professor (men are more likely to advance). While working the same number of total hours, men spent seven hours more per week on research than women, who were investing that time in service and mentoring. I often work with midcareer faculty members (mostly women) who are overwhelmed with service requests, overfunctioning on departmental service, and feeling exhausted, angry, and resentful about the work. And yet, when asked why they keep doing more service, I hear the same thing repeatedly: "I can't say no." More

Memphis College of Art Corrals Budget through Cuts, Sale of Artwork
Commercial Appeal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Memphis College of Art has laid off four faculty members and plans to divest much of the college's 550-piece art collection to head off financial problems at the seventy-five-year-old private school. "All four of us suspected that we were on the [layoff] list," said Jennifer Sargent, former associate professor and director of exhibitions. "We were told that [MCA president Ron Jones] would be working from the periphery to the core in eliminating faculty positions, and we were on the periphery." More

The Fine Art of Being a Curator
New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Over the last decade, as the contemporary art world has grown to planetary size—more galleries, more fairs, more art-selling websites, bigger museums, new biennials almost by the month—it has sometimes seemed as if a new kind of cultural figure has been born as well: the international curator, constantly in flight to somewhere.
