If You Have To Wear A Mask, It Might As Well Be A Masterpiece ...

2020-10-19

In the pandemic days, working at home means wearing basically the same thing every day, but another ‘accessory’ became the new field for people to express their fashion taste - face mask.Although many museums were still closed, their shops are doing a lively business with face masks that are creative and can be ordered online. The masks are usually based on art in their collections, and are usually nonmedical.Detroit Institute of ArtsYou’ll be surprised to find out some masterpieces fit the form of face mask, for example, on the Detroit Institute of Arts’ mask based on Monet’s Corbeille de Fleurs, the flora in Monet’s strokes gives wearers an Impressionist beard. No wonder it is the shop’s best seller. According to Eric Huck, who’s in charge of DIA’s retail operations, he wanted “to have a cheery scene on something most people wouldn’t choose to wear if we weren’t in the middle of a pandemic.”Milwaukee Art MuseumLikewise, Milwaukee Art Museum picked a design that’s less about beauty and more about mood: Edvard Munch’s The Scream.Peabody Essex MuseumThere are also face masks sold at museum shops based on themes of traditional witchcrafts. Perhaps people do believe in their magic especially during the pandemic crisis - The Peabody Essex Museum’s face mask that features The Great Sea Serpent has sold out twice.Source | nprAuthor | Susan Stamberg More

The art that crosses cultural borders resulted in the artist's unique theme and language. Chagall's practice is rich in surreal memories, imagination and symbolization. With devout and poetic tones, he sang an ode to the earth, the sky, love and natural life.The spirit in Chagall's works is innocent like that of children. They show a romantic picture of the artist's nostalgia and his love for all life forms. The spirit of Chagall's will timely echo our cherishment of life and purest love amid the coronavirus pandemic. The exhibition will also be an important landmark of the cultural exchange bewteen China and France.On the other hand, the "Masterpieces from CAFA Art Museum" showcases selected artworks collected by the CAFA Art Museum, dated from 18th century to the modern time. The Chinese paintings in this exhibition are also expected to form a dialogue with Marc Chagall's art.The opening ceremony was followed by professional guidance of the two exhibitions respectively by their curators, Zhang Zikang and Wang Chunchen.CAFAM director Zhang Zikang gave a guidance to Marc Chagall's exhibition.CAFAM deputy director Wang Chunchen gave a guidance to the "Masterpieces from CAFA Art Museum" exhibition.CAFAM - LangfangCurrent ExhibitionsTime: Oct 10 2020 - Apr 18 2021 (closed on Mondays)Venue: Gallery 4, 3rd Floor, Langfang Silk Road International Culture Exchange CenterThe exhibition showcases over 50 pieces (sets) of selected Chinese paintings from the CAFA Art Museum collection.

What museums are already collecting to tell the story of Coronavirus? ...

2020-10-09

The New-York Historical Society began its COVID-19 collecting effort in March, and has now amassed more than 200 objects and multimedia files documenting the new normal, including bottles of hand sanitizer made by distilleries and New York inmates.Hand sanitizer made by Kings County Distillery—which usually makes whiskey—in Brooklyn, N.Y. The New-York Historical Society has collected hand sanitizer made by distilleries that converted their operations. Courtesy Kings County DistilleryThis is in fact the latest project of the institution within an ongoing program that began in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, to collect materials of cultural importance immediately after historic events. And the institution is not alone. Museums worldwide have carried out similar initiatives in the last two decades.With COVID-19’s historic nature firmly established, even as the world still battles the virus, the question of how it will become part of historical memory is already being answered. The artifacts many of us have accumulated in our homes right now will inform future generations about what it was like to live through this time.Instead of collecting the usual art or materials belonging to influential people, museums in the pandemic era are seeking out everyday people’s experiences - via objects, TikTok and YouTube videos, Zoom screenshots and recordings, workplace emails about safety protocols, text messages about keeping busy in lockdown, and photographs of drugstore shelves stripped bare of disinfecting products.Masks, a signature of the new normal, will definitely be covered in future exhibits on the COVID-19 pandemic. The Autry Museum of the American West called for submissions of homemade masks. The photos it received include a specially designed one with ruffles and a matching head-wrap representing the designer’s West African heritage; and masks strangers sewed for strangers via Auntie Sewing Squad, an online community of hundreds of people who have sewn more than 80,000 masks for underserved populations in the US.Screenshot of Auntie Sewing Squad "Stitch and Bitch Meeting" on April 4. Courtesy Auntie Sewing SquadFor museums in the US, documenting COVID-19 has been inseparable from documenting the ongoing Black Lives Matter protests. Museum of the City of New York initiated a social media open call for images of “a socially-distanced NYC” and scenes of activism, and received nearly 20,000 images from professional and amateur photographers.Some places are also collecting less tangible artifacts, such as data from Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE), which runs a COVID-19 dashboard; snapshots from GISAID, which aggregates genomic data from labs worldwide during pandemics; and capturing analyses from platforms like Nextstrain, which are mapping the mutations of the virus and its transmission.Six months after COVID-19 lockdown orders closed down museums, these cultural institutions face a long recovery themselves, and the online outreach has helped them reinvent themselves. Curators hope these collecting efforts help the world see museums not only as buildings, but also as online communities in which citizens play a key role.Source | TIMEAuthor | Olivia B. Waxman More

Smithsonian and V&A Drop a Plan to Co-curate a Gallery in London ...

2020-09-27

The Smithsonian Institution and the Victoria and Albert Museum are abandoning plans to co-curate a gallery in the planned V&A East museum, planned to open in East London in 2023.The proposed gallery was expected to draw from both institutions’ permanent collections to explore the impact of human life on the natural world. The museums have now called off the long-held plans, citing their “evolving strategic priorities” as well as the public-health context.The V&A East. Photo by Forbes Massie, courtesy Queen Elizabeth Olympic ParkAs put in a joint statement, they are re-focusing their work together on STEP (Shared Training and Employment Programme) program, to provide paid internships to young people that seeks to promote diversity in the arts. It will be open to young East Londoners and DC residents from diverse backgrounds, who hope to gain experience in the creative industries.“We know that the creative workforce in the UK and the US does not reflect our societies and this program is needed now more than ever,” the institutions say in the statement. The cancelled joint gallery would have been the Smithsonian’s first permanent gallery space outside of the US. The plans for the gallery were first announced in 2018, and are the latest to be cancelled due to the worsening financial situation. The Smithsonian’s director Lonnie Bunch has said that the institution has lost millions of dollars in revenue since the beginning of the shutdown.Source | artnet NewsAuthor | Naomi Rea More

Children’s Museology and the COVID-19 Crisis ...

2020-09-24

While physical museums are facing an uncertain future, virtual museum visitorship is booming. This quantum leap into virtual visitorship, forced by the coronavirus pandemic, intersects powerfully with young people’s preferred technologies, enabling them to participate more prolifically and publicly in museum programming than ever before. A new critical children’s museology is emerging at the forefront of virtual museological practice.With unprecedented numbers of children learning from home during the pandemic, museums are helping to fill the gaps, offering an abundance of virtual programming and educational resources to support home-based learning and play. Some standard forms have emerged: downloadable line-drawing coloring pages, workshops and instructions on how to create imitative art and craft inspired by adult artists or artworks, and scientific demonstrations conducted by adult scientists.Despite the vastness of these online materials for children, they are usually activities for children designed by adults, a power dynamic in which adults hold most of the authority and set the terms of engagement. It misses an opportunity to explore content and programming by and with children, who may have unique contributions to make drawing from their own expertise, capabilities, and capacity for creativity and innovation.Photo credit: Jerry Wang on UnsplashChildren are keen observers, skilled innovators, creative producers, full-time learners, and important contributors to their households and communities. The new critical children’s museology should be grounded in a child-centered approach. Museums should create more reciprocal forms of engagement with children and youths in ways that share authority and allow young people to contribute in more active and agentive ways. Some strong models do exist. For example, the Niagra-on-the-Lake Museum launched a guided journaling initiative for kids quarantined at home, providing free, printable workbooks for young people to document their feelings and experiences. These documents will become part of the museum’s collection on the pandemic.Taking children seriously by engaging with them as contributors of content and programming will provide a richer, more insightful archive for future generations. It will also enliven and improve online materials, while promoting diversity and inclusion in museum institutions and society at large. Such a move has the potential to radically transform museums by helping to further democratize all aspects of museum content and practice.Source | American Alliance of MuseumsAuthor | Monica Eileen Patterson More
