Part 2 of our Venice Biennale Architecture series! We look at this year's entries, featuring stunning art, works pushing the boundaries of what architecture is, and a Facebook rant.
Pictorial returns from summer break with an overview of the International Architecture Exhibition in Venice and some favorite exhibits from over the years.
Quinn and Betty examine deaccessioning (specifically in the context of museums selling art) and then get distracted by how hard getting rid of anything is.
For Pictorial's diamond jubilee, we talk about the wide-ranging portfolio of architect and designer Liz Diller.
The fascinating biography and beautiful textiles of mid-century icon Ruth Adler Schnee.
Betty explains how to prove a painting was created by Rubens (and how to prove a painting was not created by Peter Doig).
Let's talk about zines! What are they? Where did they come from? Where did they go? How hard is it to make your own? (this is foreshadowing)
Museums typically preserve and restore art using the best technology available to them, but what about when decay is part of the piece?
Local contemporary art enthusiasts learn about extremely contemporary art.
We are distressed.
