Is it OK to Smash That? The Complications of Living Art Museums

Museum 2.0

I thought about all of this when reading about the recent incident at the Perez Art Museum Miami, where artist Maximo Carminero smashed a vase by Chinese artist Ai Wei Wei in an unauthorized act of visitor participation. While some in the art world are heralding Carminero''s act as expanding the role of art to disrupt and make political statements, I feel that this is a pretty straightforward issue of a criminal act. But art museums are coming back from the dead.

Meditations on Relevance, Part 2: Content vs. Form

Museum 2.0

This is the least useful form of relevance for the arts. Consider the experiments at the New World Symphony in Miami, where they are performing classical orchestral music for outdoor "wallcasts" that include projections and visual content. In pop culture-land, relevance is all about now. Who's hot. What's trending. If people on the street are talking about X, the museum should be talking about X too.

Going Beyond GIFS

Idealware

There was even a collection of high art GIFS called Moving the Still , which was hosted on Tumblr and at Miami Art Week. I’ve got a riddle for you: What’s a photo, a video, and a slideshow all at once? If you don’t know, maybe you haven’t been paying close enough attention to the images around you. A GIF, in its most common form, is a moving picture embedded on a website. It’s a short, simple clip from a video, or animation, which plays over and over.
