The life less ordinary of artist Laura Knight

From painting nudes at a time when it was forbidden to sleeping among the troops in both world wars, the vitality of her work makes her still strikingly relevant“It is my opinion that fine realism is indeed true abstractionism,” the British painter Laura Knight wrote in 1954. Her critics complained that she was just copying life, but Knight believed that she transformed the world more than abstract painters, who seemed to her, to ignore its sensuality and specificity.We can decide for ourselves ...

New environmental racism scorecard calls out ExxonMobil

The grading period has ended, and it’s time to find out who got the high scores and who’s failing the class. According to a new environmental racism scorecard released by shareholder advocacy group As You Sow, ExxonMobil came in last. In other words, an F minus. The group’s recent evaluation of the 500 largest publicly traded companies is an updated version of its March scorecard. The earlier version looked at 26 indicators of racial justice, such as workplace diversity and how often employees o...

L.A. Times Art Critic Christopher Knight Wins Pulitzer Prize

“The jury said Knight’s work demonstrated ‘extraordinary community service by a critic’ through the application of ‘his expertise and enterprise to critique a proposed overhaul of the L.A. County Museum of Art and its effect on the institution’s mission.’ … [The other finalists were] Justin Davidson of New York magazine, nominated in part for his writing on the Hudson Yards development in New York, and Soraya Nadia McDonald of The Undefeated, honored for her work exploring the intersection of f...

Take a Virtual Tour of the Andy Warhol Exhibition at the Tate Modern

Not only did Andy Warhol miss out on the internet, but the internet missed out on Andy Warhol. Surely, these days he would be prolifically posting to his Instagram and YouTube from home, indulging multiple celebrity and pop culture obsessions. Warhol’s Polaroid aesthetic and pioneering of the self-as-brand helped create 21st century online culture. Maybe he was the original “influencer,” though Warhol was more of an instigator. But he’s become too familiar for us to appreciate his unique...

A Brief History of John Baldessari (RIP) Narrated by Tom Waits: A Tribute to the Late “Godfather of Conceptual Art”

All modern art is conceptual in some way, bound to aesthetic theories and combative manifestoes against complacency. But only in the movement known as capital “C” Conceptual Art do the ideas become more important than the objects. Conceptual Art traces its history to Marcel Duchamp and the Surrealists who declared war on the bourgeois cultural status quo. Later experimental artists did the same by elevating mass culture to the status of high art: advertising, comic books, Hollywood spect...

West Virginia Public Library Removes Gay Storybook; Author And Publisher Hit Back

“Prince & Knight by Daniel Haack was pulled from West Virginia’s Upshur County public library earlier this week, according to local press reports, after a local church minister called it … ‘an intentional leading of children into sin.’ … [Haack said that] anyone concerned the book could ‘turn someone gay’ should remember ‘all the gay adults who grew up only reading about straight romances.'” – The Guardian

A Trike First for Chevy

The latest in the intermediate car/moto crossover category is this bad boy. It’s called Knight and would be the first of its type from Chevy. It differs from other models in that it sports a hollow body space that reduces the orthographic projection area. Simply put, it hugs the road… hard.As a motorcyclist, these 2×1 moto-trike options are hard for me to get behind. It’s like all the downsides of a motorcycle and car rolled up into one: exposure to the elements, dangerous, inability to circumna...

A Cover-case Worthy of the iPhone

UPDATE: less than 72 hours left, grab yours now!Apple isn’t a tech company anymore. I first heard this saying a few years ago as designers and tech experts sat and analyzed Apple’s recruitment of Marc Newson and Yves Saint Laurent CEO Paul Deneve to work for the world’s most valuable company. Apple is a fashion company. Their motive is to produce gadgets that look as precious as jewels, with colors like Rose Gold and Champagne Gold only driving the point home. People line up outside Apple Stor...

"It has totally changed how people feel:" new forest transforms former UK coal community

One UK organization is transforming an industrial landscape into a green, thriving woodland. The National Forest Company planted the first tree around 25 years ago, and today they’ve planted eight million trees in 200 square miles in the Midlands, creating the country’s first new forest in 1,000 years. Former coal miner Graham Knight told The Guardian, “It is quite difficult to put into words what’s happened here and the impact it has had on people. Perhaps the best way to think about it is tha...

Free Museums? The Pros and Cons of Dollars at the Door

Should museums be free? The quick and easy answer is: ABSOLUTELY! Meaning that, if we all had our druthers, all museums would be free, forever and ever (…and so would many other things, for that matter). But of course, it’s not that simple. Charging for admission to museums is a hotly debated topic all around the world. For some, philosophy wins out – they just can’t reconcile an educational mission with an entrance fee of any kind. I’ll admit I am sympathetic to this view. However, others take ...

3,000 Illustrations of Shakespeare’s Complete Works from Victorian England, Neatly Presented in a New Digital Archive

“We can say of Shakespeare,” wrote T.S. Eliot—in what may sound like the most backhanded of compliments from one writer to another—“that never has a man turned so little knowledge to such great account.” Eliot, it’s true, was not overawed by the Shakespearean canon; he pronounced Hamlet “most certainly an artistic failure,” though he did love Coriolanus. Whatever we make of his ambivalent, contrarian opinions of the most famous author in the English language, we can credit Eliot for keen obser...
