Great Map of Outdoor Art in the DC Area

Map Link

Created by Michael Antonucci, this excellent resource was created on Google maps and has the location of over 200 artworks in the DC area listed. This is a great idea and I’d love to see it get made for other cities as well. Definitely worth a look for anyone traveling to DC soon. The map originally appeared on the blog BadWolf DC and there is also an interview with Michael Antonucci on Curbed.

PDF Library: Brochure for “After Midnight” at the Queens Museum

Download LInk: After Midnight: Indian Modernism to Contemporary India 1947/1997

Today’s addition to the PDF Library is a smaller document than we normally have. It is the brochure accompanying “After Midnight,” the current show about art made in India in the 50 years following that country’s independence. The show looks great and has been extended through September 13, 2015, so check out the show or at least the pictures on the Queens Museum website if you can’t make it to New York. You can also read through the essay in the brochure by curator Dr. Arshiya Lokhandwala, which provides a nice introduction to the context surrounding the works in the show.

Yesterday we posted about a new journal that focuses on art and social practice in Detroit called Detroit Research. Today we have a video of a recent talk given at MOCAD by Michael Stone-Richards on challenges that are being faced in contemporary art education.

New Resource Added to the Database: Detroit Research

website: Detroit Research

Today we are featuring a new resource from Detroit, Detroit Research. They have one issue out so far and a really great interface for reading it in a browser. The website also features a handful of videos related to the magazine content. 

From detroitresearch.org: Detroit Research is a new journal of practice and artist research for Detroit exploring social practice, ceramics, choreography, music, performance, and critical theory. Detroit Research seeks to be a forum for presenting and reflecting upon some of the most challenging post-studio and studio practices emerging in Detroit and to cultivate a critical language for talking about such practices within a national and international framework. Each issue of the journal will have a guest editor and a featured artist as well as work devoted to artist research, and each issue will contain a reflection upon a historically important Detroit journal. Detroit Research will appear in Spring and Fall of each year.
