MoMA Increases Admission Fees, No One Likes It

I have to wonder at what point museum admission prices will become too high to attract crowds. MoMA announced today they will increase their ticket prices this from 20 dollars to 25, following The Metropolitian’s lead in early June. They too raised their admissions to $25, though that museum at least uses a suggested donation model. The MoMA offers only four and a half free hours a week (every Friday 4pm-8:30pm).

Cindy Sherman On Your Face

Cindy Sherman has collaborated with MAC to create her own limited edition costume make-up line (launch date September 29th). Of course, that’s not how it’s being billed; this stuff is limited edition affordable art in the form of bronzer and lipstick.  Look out 20×200, you’ve got some competition!  I’m guessing customers don’t actually get an edition number, not that this makes any difference to the sale. Speaking of which, this may be a stupid question, but is anyone going to buy this?

Fragments in Time and Space at The Hirshhorn

We’ve gotten better at time. Though a recent study has confirmed we can’t beat it, the flash-freezing of photographic documentation and the temporal control of video has brought contemporary time (if such a thing can be identified) a long way from the immutable march of the everyday. In the arts, we’ve discovered an ability to expand and contract time as it’s lived, and moreover we’ve learned to communicate that ability – to make the variable internal perception evident in phrases like “time flies when you’re having fun” into a problem, a challenge, and rich ground for artmaking. Hence, the continuing relevance of shows like “Fragments in Time and Space” (through Aug. 28th), an exhibition from the collection of the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C. that aims to “demonstrate the diverse ways in which time and space have been conceptualized, employed, and manipulated.”

Take Me To Perm!

The Siberian city of Perm, population under one million, has dedicated 3 percent of its annual budget to arts funding, according to The New York Times. That’s $53 million, which at this point is probably more than allotted by New York state. The new spending is the result of Oleg Chirkunov’s efforts, a man who was appointed as the city’s governor in 2004. “A city must have a dream”, he told the Times, explaining that when he was appointed Perm was losing a lot its young people. “160,000 in eight years.” he said, adding, “Something needed to be done to make this an attractive place to live.”
