New Scrutiny of Museum Boards Takes Aim at World of Wealth and Status
A recent protest at the Whitney that drummed out a vice chairman exposed the symbiotic, but potentially problematic, relationship that museums have with some trustees.
While some boards have grown very large, in part to increase the donor base, most are governed by just a handful of people at the top. On rare occasions, a trustee comes to define an institution, as Mr. Lauder has the Whitney. Over four decades, Mr. Lauder, … [+2330 chars]

"Ripper"—The Inside Story of the Egregiously Bad Videogame
The 1996 title featuring Christopher Walken was held up as an exemplar of gaming’s future. But things didn’t exactly work out that way.
We have it, but we dont have anything to play it on, says Sean Kelly, the museums cofounder and director. I think people watch Ripper now out of morbid curiosity. He adds, When I think of full-motion video, I think of NightTrap. Thats the one I remember. The … [+3517 chars]

With the Guggenheim, Frank Lloyd Wright Built a Soaring and Intimate Sanctuary for Art
Just before he died, the architect created a spiraling city square that elevates the work it houses.
That said, the Guggenheim is a kind of city square. Its ramp, circling around the rotunda, echoed earlier, inward-facing buildings the architect had devised with balconies around central spaces, among them the Larkin and Johnson Wax buildings. The Guggenheim … [+693 chars]

Frieze London Shows the Art World Has Cottoned On to Weaving
A special “Woven” section at the fair celebrates an art form that was long undervalued as a result of sexism and snobbery.
The initial idea was to respond to the current situation in the U.K. and how that is interwoven with its colonial legacy, said the curator of Woven, Cosmin Costinas. The use of textiles is at the core of art history here and all over the world, but it has als… [+1102 chars]

Celebrating 30 Years Ahead of the Curve in Art
Since 1989, Z.K.M. has predicted some of the biggest trends in art. Just don’t call it a museum.
The total package is difficult to define. When asked, what, exactly, Z.K.M. was, Christiane Riedel, the chief operating officer, said it was best to think of the institute as an interface. Z.K.M. expects visitors to just go with it, rather than puzzling abou… [+730 chars]

I Went Blind. I Still Owned Manhattan.
After a lifetime of poor vision, a woman learned to navigate the blur of New York City by memory and mental tricks. Then things got worse. And then, miraculously, better.
I continued to cry intermittently for the next couple of weeks. I took in Central Park from my terrace. I could see individual leaves rustle in the wind. Tears. I looked down at my dining room carpet, it was so dirty. I burst into tears. I walked across the … [+1143 chars]
