The Tenement Museum Maps a Century of Deadly Diseases and Their Human Stories "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Jacob Burinescus business card (courtesy Tenement Museum)

An estimated 50 million people worldwide died in the 1918 flu pandemic; one of them lived at 97 Orchard Street in Manhattan. Romanian Jewish immigrant Jacob Burinescu lodged in that Lower East Side tenement with his wife Sarah and their five children, ran a cleaning business, and was an active member of the Yiddish theater community. It was while caring for sick friends in his acting troupe that he contracted the virulent strain of influenza, which soon cut his life short.

His former home is now part of the Tenement Museum, and his story is remembered on its new Life and Death at the Tenement tour. Told chronologically, and across both of the museums historic buildings (the first of its tours to do so), it offers a ground-level view of New Yorks infectious past through three families.

The tour begins at a recreation of the backyard outhouses. They might seem rudimentary today, but when 97 Orchard opened to tenants in 1863, they represented a better management of human waste through a connection to a public sewer line. There was also access to clean water, newly available through the completion of the Croton Aqueduct in 1842. Although the 1832 cholera epidemic, and the...

How Should We Look at Cornelius Gurlitts Trove of Nazi-Looted Art? "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

BERLIN Much of contemporary Western life is marked by an increasing anxiety regarding consumption. When possible, some of us try to understand where the objects in our lives come from in an attempt to avoid products created under inhumane or ecologically destructive conditions. While accepting that nothing is produced without contributing to some measure of harm, ethical consumption means choosing the less bad option. It means deciding to support or boycott something on the basis of its provenance.

Mostly, this applies to consumer goods: food, clothes, and other necessary items. However, this desire for transparency and knowledge of what we participate in can also be observed in recent museum practices, some of which attempt to unearth and lay bare the conditions in which art is produced, bought, sold, and finally, exhibited. This is the guiding principle behind...

7 Museums With Iconic Architecture Everyone Should Recognize "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Famous Museum Architecture

For centuries, the museum has remained one of the most important cultural institutions. On top of preserving and presenting art, artifacts, and other objects, many museums are also known for their educational programs, engaging entertainment, and world-class architecture.

Paris Louvre Museum is one of the most famous examples of old-meets-new architecture. Its world-class collection of ancient to 19th-century art is housed in a former French Renaissance-style palace whose wings wrap around two large courtyards. Within one of these courtyards is the Louvre Pyramid, a contemporary glass-and-steel structure.

In 1983, President Franois Mitterrand commissioned Chinese American architect I.M. Pei to design a new entrance to the museum. Pei, whose prior projects included the National Gallery of Arts East Building and John F. Kennedy Library in Massachusetts, proposed a 71-foot pyrami...

How to Envision the Revolution "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Didier William, Nou tout ansanm (We all together) (undated), ink, wood carving and collage on panel, at the exhibition Curtains, Stages, and Shadows, Act 1 at James Fuentes gallery (all images by the author unless otherwise noted)

There is a way in which one might easily miss the heart of the Curtains, Stages, and Shadows, Act 1 exhibition at James Fuentes gallery by not peeking around the corner of the main space and walking into the small anteroom thats adjacent. I almost missed it myself. A group of European travelers who happened to visit the gallery at the same time I did left without making that finding. The back room is key to understanding Didier Williams work, which here might at first seem like just contemporary painterly stylistic innovation that turns the bodies of the figures in Williams canvases into silhouettes patterned with distorted eyes of white irises and black pupils swimming in a larger darkened field. In the main room, these figures these ocularly omnidirectional agents are placed in provocative tableaus.

In one image, Nou tout ansanm (We all together) (all paintings are 2018), their limbs, heads, hands, and feet dangle below a stage curtain, as if feeling their way towards the ground. In another, Touye tout konchon yo (Kill all the conch), a figure braces itself against a wooden fence with one hand, while in the other a pointed shovel is held seemingly in preparation to break the ground underneath the characters feet. In still another, M mache toupatou ave I (I walk everywhere), one figure holds a machete in front of a stage curtain while another figure has an arm on the floor, seeking with mangled fingers the edge of the stage. These are all figures ready to enact real violence with the cutlasses, and they are also figures who are depicted as staging a rebellion. If one views the text in the back room, one can begin to understand why William believes it necessary to pictorially rehearse the action of insurrection....

A New Book Reveals a Colorful Side to Vivian Maiers Renowned Street Photography "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Nanny and self-taught photographer Vivian Maier (19262009) (previously here and here) kept nearly 150,000 photographic images, including street photography and self-portraits, hidden from the world until an estate sale in 2007 revealed a large bulk of her secretive hobby. Since 2010 her photographs have been widely exhibited in galleries and museums across the world, and were the subject of the 2013 documentary Finding Vivian Maier, which was nominated for an Academy Award.

Although her mostly Chicago and New York-based photographs have become infamous in the decade since their discovery, her color images have been less prevalent due to the technical challenges involved in their development and recovery. This month the largest monograph of her full-color photographs was published by Harper Collins, which includ...

Planned Amazon Headquarters in Queens Enrages Residents as Art Organizations Stay Mostly Quiet "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Protesters gather at a rally near the proposed new headquarters of Amazon in Queens Long Island City neighborhood (all photos by author)

Backlash against Amazons decision to build one of its new corporate headquarters in New York City is already gaining momentum with the energized and incensed residents of Long Island City (LIC), Queens.

Approximately 250 people gathered on Wednesday, November 14 at the corner of Vernon Boulevard and 44th Drive near the site of Amazons newly announced office. Protesters assembled an ad hoc press conference led by New York State Senator Michael Gianaris and Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer, both Queens government representatives. Joining them was recently-elected State Assemblywoman Catalina Cruz and members of Local 338 RWDSU (Retail, Wholesale, Department Store Union).

Strap yourself in and get ready, warned Gianaris as he began his speech.

On Monday, November 12, news broke that the Seattle-based company would open two major outposts one in LIC and another in Arlington, Virginia that would require at least 25,000 employees each and $5 billion in construction and other investments combined. (Amazon also announced the joint development of a smaller site in Nashville focused on operations and logistics, which will create 5,000 jobs in Tennessee.)

One day later, Amazon detailed its decision in a blog post, which said that the company would receive $1.525 billion in performance-based direct incentives for its LIC project from state tax credits. The company says that the average employee wage there will be $150,000 and that the headquarters will provide an estimated incremental tax revenue of more than $10 billion over the next 20 years.

UK Doctors Will Prescribe Arts & Culture Help Improve Patients Physical and Mental Health "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Social Prescribing NHS Art Prescription

The definition of doctors orders is about to be rewritten in the United Kingdom. Thanks to a new government scheme, general practitioners across the country will advise patients to absorb fewer pills and syrups and more art and culture.

Called social prescribing, this approach aims to highlight and illustrate the benefits of art-inspired, therapeutic treatment for a range of ailments and afflictions. Its scientifically proven, health secretary Matt Hancock says, [that] access to the arts and social activities improves peoples mental and physical health. It makes us happier and healthier.

So, what social prescriptions can patients expect? In addition to hands-on activities like art classes and music lessons, this proposal will send people to museums, theaters, and other cultural hubs that foster personal creativity. In any case, the prescription is personalized, so the dosage and destination depends entirely on the individuals interests.

This ambitious approach is part of the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sports Loneliness Strategy. According to British Prime Minister Theresa May, this initiative calls for cultural and community-based activities that will holistically combat one of the greatest public health challenges of our time.

While the social prescribing plan is still in its early stages, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport predicts it will be on its feet by 2023.

Under the new social prescribing scheme, doctors in t...
