How Instagram Is Changing The Job Of A Critic

Being unable to see real works of art in person for months has made me realize just how much I have come to depend on seeing works online—and how I get more from that experience than I’d been willing to admit. I have not felt much desire to delve into the online offerings of galleries and museums, but nonetheless I have been seeing lots of art onscreen—it’s just that I’ve been getting it straight from the artists, mainly via their Instagram accounts. I’ve liked that. – The Nation

Art

Art is everywhere in Florence from sculptures outside to paintings in museums. I made a quick visit to the Uffizi Gallery to look at some art famous from the Renaissance period. This was outside the Uffizi. I took the photo because of the clouds. It didn’t look this vivid in person. I did some adjudtments afterwards. It is said Michelangelo stood in front of this statue and said it was a waste of a large piece of marble. It certainly lacks the magic of Michelangelo. One of the very l...

We knew of nothing else like it.To catch a wave like this, you need to amass a wealth of knowledge from years on the ocean. In California, the slope ...

BBC reports.The piece, If You Don't Mask, You Don't Get, was painted inside a Circle Line service carriage.

‘Joy was dancing in church with her children in London. She was in her element – her dress speaks to her sense of cultural pride’Her name is Joy and I photographed her outside one of the many African churches in south-east London.

These Ballet Dancers Are Calling Out Inequity At Their Companies

“Over the past few years, calls for the ballet world to become more diverse, equitable and inclusive have become a regular rallying cry.
