The Important Privilege Of Being An Absolute Beginner

“For most of us, the beginner stage is something to be got through as quickly as possible, like a socially awkward skin condition. But even if we’re only passing through, we should pay particular attention to this moment. For once it goes, it’s hard to get back.” – The Guardian

Why We’re Still Fascinated By Gatsby

“Were you to lay this thing out by the sentence, it’d be as close as an array of words could get to strands of pearls. ‘The cab stopped at one slice in a long white cake of apartment-houses’? That line alone is almost enough to make me quit typing for the rest of my life.” – Paris Review

How One Arts Funder Is Trying To Diversify Its Selection Process

“The ‘X-factor’ that drew me to an organization was their organic feel. Anyone with money or political ambition can rent a space, start a 501(c)(3) and write a fancy application. The part you can’t fake is the organic passion and joy that comes from serving your community. I kept my eyes and ears open for that, and that’s how I came to my conclusion.” – Inside Philanthropy

Is Simon Rattle’s Departure From London A Sign Of Things To Come Post-Brexit?

Although glamorous plans were unveiled in 2019 , the new hall is looking more and more like a fantasy. And now it is losing Rattle, its champion: it’s a kick in the teeth for London, a negation of that proud homecoming. – The Guardian

For 100 Years, Magicians Have Been Sawing People In Half

On January 17, 1921, in a north London theatre, “an English magician called Percy Thomas Tibbles literally and laboriously sawed through a sealed wooden box that contained a woman. It was a sensation and has since become one of the best known magic tricks, performed with all manner of tools and varying degrees of blood – always involving someone cut in half and nearly always with them miraculously put back together.” – The Guardian

Loose Lips Sink Ships: Nina Ananiashvili Loses New Job One Week After She Announced It

Last week the former prima ballerina of the Bolshoi, ABT, and the Houston Ballet told the Georgian-language service of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty that she had accepted the directorship of the ballet company at the Novosibirsk Opera and Ballet Theater in Russia’s third-largest city.

Jazz Pianist Frank Kimbrough Dead At 64

“Casual of gesture but deeply focused in demeanor, [he] had an understated style that could nonetheless hold the spotlight in trio settings, or fit slyly into [Maria] Schneider’s 18-piece big band. In many ways, his playing reflected the Romantic, floating manner of his first jazz influence, Bill Evans. But his off-kilter style as both a player and a composer also called back to two of his more rugged bebop-era influences: Herbie Nichols and Thelonious Monk.” – The New York Times

The Philosophy Of Wine? But Of Course…

“Not content to simply establish the origins of our belief systems, philosophers focus on the evidence that supports our belief systems and whether we have good reasons to believe what we believe, which requires an inquiry into what exactly counts as a good reason. In other words, philosophers think about thinking and try to develop concepts that help us think more clearly.” – 3 Quarks Daily

Did Boris Lie About Post-Brexit Rules For UK Musicians Touring In Europe?

Britain’s musicians are anxious and angry about the fact that they’ll now have to get temporary work visas from every EU country they want to perform in, which will make touring the Continent difficult and expensive. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has claimed that EU negotiators gave him no choice in this. Now sources in Brussels say that, in fact, Johnson’s team turned down an offer to let British performers tour visa-free for up to 90 days because they didn’t want to make a reciprocal deal for ...

More Shenanigans And Secrecy Around COVID Arts Relief Money In Australia’s Largest State

New South Wales was the last of the country’s states to establish a rescue package for artists and organizations devastated by the pandemic-related lockdowns — and when the $50 million fund was finally set up, there was unusual secrecy around the application process and the breakdown of money awarded. Seven months later, $30 million hasn’t even been allocated yet, half of what has been given out went to one organization, and $7 million isn’t accounted for at all. – The Guardian
