Students Walk Out at Cooper Union


A day after Cooper Union announced that it will begin charging graduate students tuition in September, 2013, a crowd of a few hundred students gathered today outside the school’s iconic East Village home, the Great Hall, as part of a walkout. It was the school’s second walkout since November. The protest had been preplanned in solidarity with today’s nationwide student protests against student debt, which has just reached a staggering trillion dollars, but carried new significance after yesterday’s announcement from the school’s president, Jamshed Bharucha.

Olaf Nicolai, Warum Frauen gerne Stoffe tragen, die sich gut anfühlen / WHY WOMEN LIKE TO BUY TEXTILES THAT FEEL NICE, 2010

Eventually, as art fairs continue to proliferate and expand, something is going to have to give. But that day has not yet arrived. Frieze New York lands in New York for the first time next week, running May 4–7. It is going to be a busy time in New York. Tom Eccles, the director of the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard, has curated a sculpture park on the island. Frieze’s annual commissions will be executed this year by an impressive selection of artists, including Virginia Overton, Latifah Echakhch, Frances Stark, John Ahearn and novelist Rick Moody. There will be several talks, including a discussion on May 4 with Glenn Lowry, Adam Weinberg and Sheena Wagstaff on the future of museums’ impact on culture. Read More

Artist Talk: “Kara Walker on Andy Warhol,” at Dia Art Foundation
As part of its “Artists on Artists” series, the Dia Art Foundation invites Kara Walker to speak on the subject of Andy Warhol. Ms. Walker is known for her frank and often disturbing silhouettes that explore power dynamics along lines of race, gender and sexuality. Ms. Walker’s major survey exhibition, “Kara Walker: My Complement, My Enemy, My Oppressor, My Love,” which Dia director Philippe Vergne helped curate, premiered at the the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, in February 2007, after which it was presented at the Whitney and many museums worldwide. —Rozalia Jovanovic

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Sided With Sotheby’s Art Handlers, Moved Charity Auction

Tuesday morning's rally outside Sotheby's

The Teamsters have scored a powerful ally in their battle with Sotheby’s, which locked out its union art handlers last fall. A few weeks ago, Robert F, Kennedy, Jr., an environmental attorney, opted to move a charity auction for his nonprofit organization, Waterkeeper Alliance, from Sotheby’s New York “out of respect for the striking Teamsters.” (Just to be clear–they’re not, actually, striking, which would imply that they have voluntarily left their jobs; they are protesting the lockout.)
