Cafe Hopping (6/17)
Weekly roundup of (mostly) arts-related chatter around the web:
- The Museum of Nonvisible Art: James Franco’s newest art project, which sells invisible pieces of artwork, “is either an example of subtle creativity, an extremely shallow con, or a hoax.” I’m voting for the second one.
- How Long Does it Take to Look at Art? Art critic and historian James Elkins writes about dialoging with pieces of artwork over years.
- How to Look at Art: And, related to the above, tips for your next museum excursion. (via Justin Taylor)
- The Shakespeared Brain: An interesting read on how Shakespeare’s wordplay (specifically his verbing of nouns) affects the brain (via Cranach).
- Untrained Australian Improv: This performance exceeded my expectations.
