Shaquille ONeal, art curator? | Culture Monster | Los Angeles Times
"[Shaquille] O'Neal is branching out yet again by taking on the art world. The Cleveland Cavaliers athlete is curating a gallery show in New York that is appropriately titled 'Size DOES Matter,' which explores the idea of scale in contemporary art, according to a Bloomberg report.

'It was a little harder than I thought it would be,' O'Neal told Bloomberg. 'When you think about what each of the artists put into their work, what they are expressing and want to share with the world, you feel bad about having to narrow it down.'"

Wow. Really?

Fine arts not in Patricks Creative Economy?
"Massachusetts art folks had a crush on Deval Patrick (pictured here) when he ran for governor in 2006. People loved it when he said in his victory speech that November that 'You are ... artists looking to be valued' and 'We have a mandate ... to help the creative economy flourish.' But the question has always been: Who are Governor Patrick and other Massachusetts political leaders talking about when they say they support the creative economy?"


From rags to artistic riches (JSOnline)
"Grabner and her husband, Brad Killam, artists and gallery owners from the Chicago area, purchased the farm for about $150,000 and are turning it into a contemporary art space. Set among farmlands, wetlands and small rivers in Waupaca County, with a population of about 1,300, Manawa is about the most unexpected setting for the international avant-garde. And that is part of the point. The setting, which has also been a rest home, a religious retreat center and most recently a flop house, will provide seclusion for working artists and a destination for seeing art, Grabner said."

Reality TV's Thoroughly 'Modern' Mistakes (NPR)
"If you watch Project Runway " or any other design-oriented reality show " you'll hear the word "modern" employed over and over again. But in the context of reality TV, the word is often being misapplied. Modern and contemporary can " and do " mean the same thing, of course. But in the world of art and design, "modern" means Kandinsky or Picasso, Schoenberg or Stravinsky. It means daring experimental writers such as Ezra Pound or Gertrude Stein. It means Frank Lloyd Wright sweeping out the overstuffed and fusty in favor of long, clean lines."
