Jennifer Schuessler has written an interesting little article entitled “David Foster Wallace, Self-Help Reader” in the Arts section of The New York Times, looking at David Foster Wallace and offering up a number of fascinating, and perhaps even useful, links to various “support” materials for those interested in/struggling with/obsessed with Wallace’s oeuvre.

Especially wonderful are the David Foster Wallace archives at the Harry Ransom Center of the University of Texas at Austin, below.

Ah, the infinite jest of it all…

Also, take a look at our previous posts on David Foster Wallace, here (Piecing Together a Posthumous Novel) and here (The Staggering, Multifarious, Cacaphonous Predicament).

The Artist as Obstreperous Rebel & Sardonic Social Commentator – “German Expressionism: The Graphic Impulse” at MoMA

Posted by the editors on Saturday, 26 March 2011

Erich Heckel’s “Franzi Reclining”, 1910.  Part of MoMA’s extraordinary collection of German Expressionism prints.

Roberta Smith has written a wonderful, lively and informative article entitled “Bleak Visions From Early-20th-Century Rebels” in the Art & Design section of The New York Times looking at the highly colorful and intensely graphic exhibition “German Expressionism: The Graphic Impulse”  at the Museum of Moder Art (open to the public Sunday 27 March – 11 July, 2011, (212) 708-9400, moma.org).  Smith describes the show as, among other things, “infused with an urgent, crackling energy, by turns joyful, satiric, grim and tragic”, easily motivation enough for one to see it. 

However, for those of us who, for some reason, won’t be in New York between tomorrow and 11 July, MoMA has announced that as of Sunday all 3,380 German Expressionist works on paper in its collection will become available for online viewing at moma.org/germanexpressionism.  Amazing, and excellent.

In the meantime, great slideshow, here.

David Barboza and Claire Cain Miller have written a short but interesting article entitled “Google Accuses Chinese of Blocking Gmail Service” in the Technology section of The New York Times, looking into “disruptions” in the Gmail service in China which Google states are part of  “a government blockage, carefully designed to look like the problem is with Gmail.”  A never-ending battle?
