Quick study: Art bus, Rauschenberg as bad parent, sexism in arts writing, Abelow, Two Coats Residency, Stanley Whitney, Stella retrospective, more

Art in a bus: According to The Art Newspaper, “works by Scottish Turner prizewinners and nominees will be seen across Scotland in a traveling show due to crisscross the country in a specially adapted bus (image above). Artists featured in the touring exhibition, ‘Eyes on the Prize,’ include Martin Boyce (Turner prizewinner, 2011), Ciara Phillips—a nominee in 2014— and Douglas Gordon (1996 winner).” So wonderfully DIY.

In a two-part series at Art F City, Corinna Kirsch explores sexism in arts writing. “Yes, sexism exists. Journalists should take stock of not just how sexism affects the artists, administrators, and professors we surround ourselves with—but how it plays out for writers, too. Are we so concerned with objectivity, or focusing on the field we’re covering, that we ignore ourselves?” Read Part I and Part II. Good luck to Corinna, who, after more than 600 posts, has decided to leave AFC in order to pursue a Ph.D.

Artists as parents: Greg.org writes about Susan Weil’s interviews for the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation Oral History Project. She was married to Rauschenberg and mother of son Christopher, who often felt Rauschenberg cared more about art than he did about his son. Read Greg’s gloss on Weil’s interview here

Speaking of Rauschenberg:  The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation has just announced the third season of the Rauschenberg Residency in Captiva, Florida. Read about the residents here

In the July/August issue of Art21 Magazine blog, which focuses on sincerity, Jacquelyn Gleisner wrote an excellent profile of Two Coats of Paint Resident Erin Wiersma. “In June, I visited the studio of Erin Wiersma at the Two Coats of Paint Residency in the neighborhood of Downtown Brooklyn….The program encourages artists based outside the New York City area to use the space for studio visits with curators and critics….” Thanks for getting the word out there about the program. Note: For the time being residencies are by nomination and invitation only due to space and time constraints. Read the entire article here.
