Study: Yes, People Really Don’t Know When To Shut Up!

“Only 2 percent of conversations ended at the time both parties desired, and only 30 percent of them finished when one of the pair wanted them to. In about half of the conversations, both people wanted to talk less, but their cutoff point was usually different. Participants in both studies reported, on average, that the desired length of their conversation was about half of its actual length.” – Scientific American

Level Forward, a company whose founders include Abigail Disney, a grandniece of Walt Disney, said on Monday that it has won the rights to adapt Walter Tevis’s 1983 novel, which has become newly noteworthy thanks to the enormous success of last year’s streaming series adaptation on Netflix. – The New York Times

NY’s Iconic Metro Pictures Gallery Announces It Will Close

It wasn’t “because of declining sales, co-founder Helene Winer said in an interview, but with a sense that reopening the gallery once the pandemic subsides would require more energy than she had to give at age 75. “We just feel like we did our thing,” she added. “I don’t think at my present age that I want to be reinventing the wheel.” – The New York Times

What’s Wrong With Just Stopping During The Pandemic?

“We are living through a collective trauma, a once-in-a-lifetime historical moment, and taking “time off” is not a symptom of laziness. In fact, I see this time as a gift. I am thrilled to see folks develop other interests and skills that support their income. I am inspired to see artists explore other parts of their creative practice. I am encouraged by those cultivating systems that foundationally sustain making our art. I am affirmed in caring for the people who facilitate our dancemaking, i...

Can Clubhouse Be The New Facilitator For Artworld Conversation?

Alexander Calder’s Archive Goes Online: Explore 1400 Works of Art by the Modernist Sculptor

Like all great artists, Alexander Calder left his medium quite unlike he found it. Nearly 45 years after his death, Calder’s expansion of the realm of sculpture in new directions of form, color, and engineering remains a subject of voluminous discussion, including critic Jed Perl’s Calder: The Conquest of Time and Calder: The Conquest of Space, a two-part biography published in full last year. More recently, a wealth of material has come available that enables us to conduct Calderian invest...

Subsidize Old News Media? That Will Stifle Innovation

“The standoff between Big Tech and the Australian government has resulted in 90 per cent of what Big Tech has agreed to pay media so far going to the country’s three largest media companies. That means the vast majority of that cash is destined for purposes other than sustaining actual journalism jobs, and tilts the playing field away from smaller publishers – which is bad for democracy.” – The Globe and Mail (Canada)

Dr. Seuss’s Estate Made Its Decisions Based On Its Creator’s Legacy

“We make changes to the books our children read all the time. In 1812, the Brothers Grimm changed the evil mothers in traditional fairy tales to wicked stepmothers, because they wanted to preserve the sanctity of motherhood. The Faraway Tree’s Dick and Fannie are Rick and Frannie in newer editions – a fact which seems to infuriate nostalgic readers (I genuinely don’t understand why).” – The Guardian

Word of the week: NFT

I am going to do my best to explain the hot initialism of the week—trust me, I’m just as baffled as most non-rich, non-tech people—but first I’m going to tell you what it doesn’t stand for. It doesn’t stand for “Not For Tourists,” the series of city guides first published in 2000.   The circled sans-serif letters originally suggested the distinctive font of New York subway lines, an iconography that is Not Fully Transferable to other cities, although the San Francisco Municipal Railwa...

A Year Of Turmoil At The American Shakespeare Center

Over the last year, American Shakespeare Center—a $4.3 million theatre company in Staunton, Va., known for producing the Bard’s work in repertory with a stripped-down style and a resident company of actors—became a contentious, mistrustful, even traumatic place for many who had called it home. – American Theatre

This Woman Has Narrated More Than 600 Audiobooks

Here’s how to be good at it: Plan ahead. “What’s really important when you’re listening is to be able to know who’s talking. One of the hardest things is when you have a group of, like, five men and they’re all 40, and they’re all having a beer together. How you make those voices sound different?” – Slate

Will European Theatre Bounce Back?

Basically, the pandemic has changed the performing arts audience. “Fans have had access to virtual theater from all over the world. Some venues have expanded their audiences far beyond what’s possible in their physical spaces. Around 160,000 viewers watched a streamed performance of Carmen last year by the Berlin State Opera, whose auditorium seats 1,300. The shift has raised questions about whether audiences will return to theaters in the same numbers as before, and whether a blend of online a...

Story behind the Amiga's crude yet legendary Kickstart graphic

At 11 years old, my new Commodore Amiga blew my mind. But even I could tell that the firmware screen when you turned it on was, quote, "badly drawn". It turns out (as such things often do) that it is in fact an amazing feat of digital art made for an in-development machine long before it had drawing applications, plotted with vectors on graph paper and punched in as 412 bytes of machine code. — Read the rest

The Coronavirus Has Become An Inspiration For Visual Artists

Some of it might seem tasteless as the pandemic rages on, but as one artist points out, there aren’t exhibitions now – and artists make art. “One online art gallery, Singulart, is featuring collections of Covid-inspired art, with 300 pieces by artists from all over the world priced at up to £21,190. Co-founder Véra Kempf says they originally received 1,500 Covid-inspired artworks from professional artists.” – The Observer (UK)

How To Write A Second Novel When Your First Wins The Pulitzer

Viet Thanh Nguyen says it wasn’t as easy as writing The Sympathizer, his 2016 Pulitzer-winning novel: “I would write in 50-page chunks – I wrote 50 pages before the Pulitzer. Then my life got really messy for a couple of years while I wrote the middle of the book. Towards the end, I finally figured out how to balance everything that was making demands on me and felt like I was back in the groove again.” – The Guardian (UK)

How Do Independent Book Presses Make It?

Ask Melville House. Or perhaps don’t: “We did what you would tell your children to never do. Not just having a business, but funding it the way we did: with our own money, with credit cards, we emptied out our bank accounts. I had a very small retirement fund from my life as a college professor and I emptied that into the company and just really put everything we had into it. You’re never supposed to play with your own money; that was an amazing risk, and if our first two books hadn’t been succ...

Inaugural Poet Amanda Gorman Followed By A Security Guard, Who Said She Looked Suspicious

The poet, who is 22, “wrote on Twitter that a security guard ‘tailed’ her while she was walking home Friday night. ‘He demanded if I lived there because ‘you look suspicious.’ I showed my keys & buzzed myself into my building,’ Gorman wrote. ‘He left, no apology. This is the reality of black girls: One day you’re called an icon, the next day, a threat.'” – Slate

Chadwick Boseman Could Make Oscars History, Posthumously

Sherald, who painted the portrait for a Ta-Nehisi Coates-edited edition of Vanity Fair, decided that she wanted to sell the painting where Taylor lived and was killed by police. Stephen Reily, the director of the city’s Speed Museum: “The killing of Breonna Taylor and a year of protests have really changed the course of Louisville, and we’re struggling. … Our goal and ambition is to use the work of great artists to help process what we’ve been through and collectively find a way forward.” – The...
