Curating on a phone? Is this good for art but bad for curators?

There is a very interesting Article on Art Daily that people using check out the link is below:

http://artdaily.com/index.asp?int_sec=2&int_new=58645#.UJEdLW_7JTA

This is even more interesting due to my recent research into curatorial practice graduate school in California. I really want to move to California but is this the right time in my life to uproot from PA. I find myself wondering when will it ever be right. I am still interested in the Drexel Program ,but I can help but wonder should I shoot for California. I have been leaning towards completing the Drexel Program and attending the California program in 2015 or 2016. I just need time to personally and educationally get things together. But the article makes me think about this as a marketing scheme and not so much as a museum interaction tool. I wonder what will be the role of a curator in the next 10 years? Can this tool be used in America for smaller museums for more visibility? I really think this App is just the beginning of merging technology with retro museum practices. Hmm… Can you say inspired! Enjoy!

Art Movements- Introductions

Hello All,

This is a segment dedicated to increasing my knowledge of the various Art Moments. Although I have a minor in Art History, there are movements and periods that are not discussed in school. I was inspired to do this segment due to my graduate school set backs and wanted to developed a thesis or background research about art movements and it’s interactions with nonprofit and the art market. I also want to attempt to define, “what makes a movement a movement or a period a period?” It’s the age-old question of “what makes art, ART?” After four years of college, four years at an art school, and four years of life after school, I am still challenging academia in regards to what is art and who determines this value? I hope that it is entertaining and educational.

The format for this segment is as follows:

The Movement

Common Definition

Famous Example

Modern Example

Controversies

Is this Art Worthy?

So I did a Wikipedia search (where all great ideas start) and found that there are over 120 movements. I am going to attempt each week to present one or two movements in the format listed above. I will also have listed references as well as copyright information for any photos used. With all new projects there might be some kinks to work out, bear with me!

Distractions

My worst enemy is a distraction. Staying motivated and pushing yourself are the hardest things to do. I have not been as focus or driven for a week, now and I am starting to get into my distraction mode. However, I will be in New York for the weekend and will be flexing wings to art venues and continuing to focus on moving forward. Two segments to keep me motivated and keep the blog interesting: First Friday Accounts/Insights and Movement Breakdowns with Examples. 

My goal is to learn, refresh and expand my knowledge of Art. I also want to really define my graduate research/career paths. This a motivational technique of keeping me focus on art. Once a week I will discuss Art Movements and once a month I will explore as well as present contemporary art in Philadelphia. We will see if it’s a success… I hope so! lol I am going to be re-designing the blog for these special editorials. Until then, A domani!
