What “Hamlet” Suggests About Trump’s Impeachment Trial

Rereading “Hamlet” after the storming of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, I was struck by how fears of insurrection permeate the play. Every age sees itself in Shakespeare’s tragedy, but little did I expect to be reminded of the recent uprising and its poisonous politics when returning to this most philosophical of revenge dramas. – Los Angeles Times

Why The California Attorney General Is Investigating The San Francisco Art Institute

The attorney general does not comment on ongoing audits, but Hyperallergic has acquired documents raising questions about board member self-interest and misuse of tax-exempt bonds that nonprofit attorneys interviewed by Hyperallergic say are within the office’s investigative scope. The documents shed light on the school’s debt-financed expansion into Fort Mason that jeopardized SFAI’s original campus on Chestnut Street and its prized Diego Rivera mural. – Hyperallergic

Our Inner Critics – Ignore Or Be Guided?

“The inner voice, which is also an inward-turning voice, tends to linger over negative content. What’s more, it can call our attention to processes that run more smoothly in the dark, deconstructing what should be seamless movement into a broken jumble of steps.” – The New Yorker

Famed Broadway Restaurateur Joe Allen, 87

In a city that devours restaurants the way diners down hamburgers, Mr. Allen founded and ran not just one successful New York restaurant but two: Joe Allen and Orso, next to each other on West 46th Street, between Eighth and Ninth Avenues. The street would later develop a certain cachet and even got its own name: Restaurant Row. But when Mr. Allen opened Joe Allen in 1965, the neighborhood, close to a then-squalid Times Square, was hardly a prime location. – The New York Times

An ‘Intersectional Trainwreck’ — Alex Ross On ‘The Great Gay Jewish Poetry Brawl Of 1821’

“In the shouty Valhalla of pointlessly destructive literary feuds, a place of honor must go to the verbal duel between the poets Heinrich Heine and August von Platen, which amused and disgusted the German literary world in 1829. Two outsiders — a Jew and a homosexual — resorted to crude stereotypes as they attempted to eject each other from an establishment that might rather have dispensed with both of them.” – The New Yorker

In Seattle, Music Venues Can Now Reopen. Few Are Choosing To Do So

Thus far, only a few local music venues have signaled their interest in reopening under present conditions. In a statement on its website, the Washington Nightlife Music Association — a coalition of independent club owners — said many venues will opt to remain closed, citing safety concerns and a number of requirements, including a 25% capacity limit that “is not cost-effective for most venue operations or equitable” for ticket pricing. – Seattle Times

NY Governor Cuomo Says Broadway May Reopen Soon

“Would I go see a play and sit in a playhouse with 150 people? If the 150 people were tested, and they were all negative, yes, I would do that,” Cuomo said during a press briefing. “I think reopening with testing is going to be the key.” – CNBC

Fox News’s Response To Smartmatic’s $2.7 Billion Lawsuit: Don’t Blame Us, Blame Trump’s Lawyers (And Besides, First Amendment)

In the network’s motion to dismiss the voting company’s defamation lawsuit — which alleges that Fox News and three of its hosts knowingly spread a false conspiracy theory that Smartmatic’s tabulation software (with the help of the late Hugo Chávez) changed vote totals — Fox’s attorneys argue that any allegation, no matter how bizarre, by a President or his representatives is inherently newsworthy and the network has a protected right and duty to present it. – The Hollywood Reporter

California’s Gig Worker Law Is Hurting Artists

Used to hiring artists who work as independent contractors in exchange for program or project fees, it’s been tough for these small nonprofit arts groups in particular to adapt to AB5, the labor law intended to give the state’s workers more benefits by preventing employers from misclassifying them as contractors in order to save money. – KQED

Governor And Mayor Announce Programs To Revive New York’s Live Performance Industry

And, given the notorious personal relationship between the two men, it’s no surprise that their plans are entirely separate. Governor Cuomo’s scheme, called NY PopsUp, will consist of 300 free events over the next 100 days and 1,000 by Labor Day, many featuring very well-known artists, at “existing landscapes” throughout the state. Mayor de Blasio’s program, called Open Culture NYC, is a streamlined permitting program for institutions to present outdoor performances (socially distanced, of cour...

To Deaccession Or Not, And Why? Museum World’s Long Argument About This Is Now Playing Out In Public

Once the AAMD, looking at the financial carnage wrought by COVID, relaxed its strict rule about museums selling their art only in order to acquire other art, the sales started — with major museums in Brooklyn, Syracuse, the Berkshires, and, above all, Baltimore drawing a huge amount of scrutiny, more than a little condemnation, and even (though it’s not loud) some support. Andrew Russeth reports. – ARTnews

The Problem With Hygiene Theatre

If hygiene theater were actual theater, it would exist in the genre of catastrophic improv. Hundreds of millions of people are ad-libbing their way through a crisis in the absence of a clear script. That script could begin something like this: The best defenses against an airborne virus are masks, social distancing, and ventilation—at least until you can get a vaccine—not gloves and bleach. – The Atlantic

How Norman Rockwell Used Photographs to Create His Famous Paintings: See Side-by-Side Comparisons

More than 40 years after Norman Rockwell’s death, the question of whether his paintings are realistic or unrealistic remains open for debate. On one hand, critical opinion has long dismissed his Saturday Evening Post-adorning visions of American life as sheerest fantasy. “A little girl with a black eye, an elderly woman saying grace with her grandson, a boy going to war: Rockwellian scenes represent a certain sentimental America — an ideal America, or at least Rockwell’s ideal,” says a 2009 NPR...

Rembrandt and slavery: did the great painter have links to this abhorrent trade?

No artist is more celebrated for their compassion and empathy. So why has the Dutch master’s work been included in a shocking new show linking art and the slave trade?The title of the show is simple and stark: Slavery. Due to open this spring at the mighty Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, this bold exhibition documents the importance of this abhorrent trade in the rise and wealth of the Netherlands, by juxtaposing shackles and slave inventories with works of art. There is a metal ring that has been in ...
