Hegra, Petra’s Sister City And Saudi Arabia’s First Secular Tourist Attraction, Is Now Open For Business

“Once a thriving international trade hub, the archeological site of Hegra (also known as Mada’in Saleh) has been left practically undisturbed for almost 2,000 years. … Hegra was the second city of the Nabataean kingdom, but Hegra does much more than simply play second fiddle to Petra: it could hold the key to unlocking the […]Source:

Big Art Telling Big Stories

“The resurgence over the past two decades of artists working in the grand manner suggests that the energies inherent to this style didn’t disappear but were merely redirected: into cinema like that of Cecil B. DeMille; into cycles of narrative painting such as the African American history paintings of Jacob Lawrence; and even into political […]Source:

The Monolith Has Disappeared

And, just as quickly as we all learned about it, the monolith in the Utah desert is gone. “The Bureau of Land Management said it would not be investigating the disappearance because ‘crimes involving private property’ are managed by the local sheriff’s office. The San Juan and Grand County Sheriff’s Offices did not immediately respond […]Source:

The Impossible Weight That Public Sculptures Of Women Must Bear

It’s not just the sexualized, weirdly tiny Mary Wollstonecraft; it’s not just the naked Medusa in the park; it’s not just that rather iffy sculpture of Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Sojourner Truth all sitting down to plan universal suffrage. No. It’s the arc of public art for its entire history – and […]Source:

At A Crossroads, Second City Names New Creative Boss

Almost six months after co-owner Andrew Alexander left the company after accusations of embedded institutional racism there, Jon Carr has been named to succeed him as executive producer. A longtime playwright and performer in Atlanta, Carr currently heads Dad’s Garage Theater in that city. He will oversee all creative matters at Second City’s theaters in […]Source:

As United Citizens Brigade Falters, Alums Found New Improv Theater

“Per the theater’s mission statement on its website, the Squirrel’s goal is to become ‘New York’s premier destination for sketch and improv comedy, …” The guiding principles of the theater will be ‘community, representation, transparency, and equality,’ and the website notes that equality will begin with the theater ‘financially compensating its artists'” — a years-long […]Source:

COVID May Have Changed Arts Criticism For Good — And For The Better

Philip Kennicott: “Freed from the obligation of keeping up with a regular calendar of exhibition openings, or a concert schedule or a weekly march of theatrical premieres, critics have written more about the personal experience of art rather than the specific content of art in particular. … This more reflective, more personal [approach] may widen […]Source:

BBC Requires Inclusion Rider For All New Commissions

Effective Immediately, “twenty percent of all on-screen talent and production teams must come from a Black, Asian or minority ethnic (BAME) background; have a lived experience of a disability; or be from a low-income background.” – The Hollywood ReporterSource:

€2.1 Billion-With-A-B: Germany’s Culture Budget For 2021

It’s the federal government’s largest-ever package for supporting the arts, €155 million more than for this year, at a time of unprecedented need as the resurgent pandemic wipes out earned income. Among the notable line items is €85 million for renovating Wagner’s opera house at Bayreuth. – ArtnetSource:

“Reimagining” Your Orchestra Season? Really?

“When, over the summer, orchestras began making known their fall plans, the operative word was “reimagined.” At least twenty orchestras, from Albany to St. Louis, announced reimagined seasons. Yet, because so many institutions were using identical language, it didn’t seem that anything particularly imaginative was going on. A certain herd mentality also surfaced in the […]Source:

In Virtual School Test-Taking, Surveillance AI Is Intruding On Students

“In the swift and chaotic pivot to virtual test-taking, companies like Respondus — along with competitors including Honorlock, ProctorU and Proctorio — have stepped in to help schools keep watch on students. Because the new digital tools are required in certain courses, students are being forced to subject themselves to surveillance inside their own homes […]Source:

Our Mythology Of Failure On The Road To Success Is Wrong

“Tech companies have created a “fail-fast” system; a culture in which there is no room for what could be genuinely called failure, but only a series of experiments which lead inevitably and inexorably to the conclusion of success. I find it all exhausting. Failure once allowed you to stop trying – that was, famously, the […]Source:

On The Verge Of Thinking Far Beyond Our Own

Why couldn’t one of these marvelous learning machines, let loose on an enormous astronomical catalog or the petabytes of data compiled by the Large Hadron Collider, discern a set of new fundamental particles or discover a wormhole to another galaxy in the outer solar system, like the one in the movie “Interstellar”? – The New […]Source:

John Luther Adams – Composer Of Places

“What sets Mr. Adams’s seething, shimmering, preternaturally patient sound forces apart is their absence of a definable human anchor. The pieces that make up the “Become” trilogy are neither stories about nature nor pictures of it. Rather, as Mr. Adams writes in an essay accompanying the excellent recordings, ‘this is music that aspires to the […]Source:

Broadway’s Spiderman Disaster, Ten Years Later

“You had Spider-Man dangling seven feet above the first two rows. It was the worst possible position because no one could reach him. One of the crew members fetched a stick to prod him with, but that didn’t help. It was like a live Spider-Man pi?ata. But we knew by the end of the night, […]Source:

A Better Way To Give Concerts?

Stephen Hough: “One issue I wrote about that seems to have struck a chord with readers was the idea of removing the interval and having shorter concerts, lasting around 60-80 minutes, perhaps at different starting times, and even repeating them on the same night. Since the pandemic struck this shrunken format has quickly become the […]Source:

TikTok Users Are Creating The Ratatouille Musical Disney Never Did

The Carols From Kings Will Go On, To An Audience Of No One

No one except the BBC, of course. “For many of us, it is the moment when?Christmas?really starts: the soaring voice of a boy soloist at King’s College, Cambridge opening its iconic?Christmas?Eve service with Once in Royal David’s City.” No one will be in the pews this year. – The Observer (UK)Source:
