Another Thing to Sort of Pin on David Foster Wallace – SNOOTitude & Tense Present

Posted by the editors on Monday, 22 August 2011

Maud Dixon has written an interesting and rather lively article entitled “Another Thing to Sort of Pin on David Foster Wallace” in the Magazine section of The New York Times riffing, as it were, on, among other things DFW, his “so good and so sneaky,” “subtle rhetorical strategy.”  Dixon’s article itself is really kind of about the whole thing.  And very enjoyable to read.

Carol Vogel has written an interesting article entitled “The Spirit of Sharing” as part of the the Museums Special Section of the Art & Design section of The New York Times looking at the use of the Internet in general, and social media, in particular, by a number of renowned museums in the U.S. and abroad.

Arthur C. Danto, Johnsonian Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at Columbia University, and art critic for The Nation from 1984 to 2009, has written an very good article entitled “Sitting With Marina” in the Opinionator section of The New York Times (online) looking, once again, at performance art, in general, and, most particularly, at Marina Abramovic’s “The Artist is Present”, in its last week at MoMA in New York City.  Fascinating, thoughtful.

The article includes 15 photos by Marco Anelli taken of visitors/participants in the work, including, of  course, the above photo of Abramovic herself.  All of Anelli’s photos of all of the participating public (almost 1200 photos when we last looked) are viewable on MoMA’s Flickr feed, here.

Make sure to read the readers’ comments following Danto’s article, as well.
