This volume explores the evolution of the language of museum communication from 1950 to the present day, focusing on its most salient tool, the press release. The analysis is based on a corpus of press releases issued by eight high-profile British and American museums, and has been carried out adopting corpus linguistics and genre analysis methodologies. After identifying the typical features of the museum press release, new media more recently adopted by museums, such as web presentations, blogs, e-news, and social media, are taken into consideration, exploring questions such as how has the language of museum communication changed in order to face the challenge posed by new technologies? Are museum press releases threatened by new approaches used in contemporary public relations? Are the typical press release features still detectable in new genres? Drawing on insights from linguistics, discourse analysis, and museum communication this book will be of great value to researchers and practitioners of applied linguistics, sociolinguistics, and museum communication scholars.

L S Lowry is one of Britain's best-loved artists. In "LS Lowry: Conversation Pieces", gallery owner Andras Kalman tells of his long friendship with the man and his experiences as a dealer in Lowry's work. An Hungarian émigré, Kalman opened his first gallery in Manchester in 1949 - an establishment that soon attracted a visit from the great Mancunian artist. Lowry not only bought a work on display but immediately agreed that Kalman become a dealer in his work. The two men became firm friends and their relationship continued until Lowry's death. Now in his eighties, Kalman recalls Lowry in conversation with the writer and critic Andrew Lambirth, drawing a vivid picture of the private man. A sensitive, somewhat reclusive character, Lowry showed himself only to a handful of intimates, and Kalman gives a sympathetic account of his client and friend, drawing attention to the seldom-recognised breadth of his work. Illustrated by 80 paintings, Lowry's best-known works are displayed, along with lesser-known works of equal boldness and originality. A remarkable insight into the life and unique talent of a great British artist.

Urban Constellations

Author: Zoë Thompson

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1317003942

Page: 224

View: 413

This book investigates the iconic architectural cultural spaces of the contemporary cityscape as engines of regeneration. Promising much to their fading locales, these spaces locate culture in the space where production once ruled in order to revitalise post-industrial urban provinces. With close attention to four sites across the UK, Urban Constellations engages with the work of Walter Benjamin and Jean Baudrillard, to read these spaces and in so doing, offer a critical intervention into the theory and experience of contemporary cityscapes. Developing the notion of surface ethnography as a methodological approach to examining the form of cultural experience produced by urban cultural spaces, the author sheds light on the manner in which they transform cultural spectatorship, express wider political and ecological concerns and offer differing views to the ’native’ and the ’tourist’ in the construction of local history. The book also examines the decline of the idea that iconic projects can drive regeneration, in the failures and delays that can beset such undertakings. Offering a rich examination of the legacy of urban change in its most recent formulation - that of cultural regeneration - this book reveals the fragile potential of the spaces produced by contemporary ’dream houses’ and as such, will be of interest to scholars of cultural studies, sociology and social theory, urban studies, cultural geography and architecture.

Two questions are key to experiencing a work of art in a museum or exhibition: 1.) Do I like it? 2.) Who's it by? You need quite a few more questions if you're in an auction room or dealer's gallery, however. You’ll find yourself asking, How much is it worth? How much will it be worth in five or ten years? And finally, what will people think of me if they see it hanging on my wall? Breakfast at Sotheby's is not only a guide to finding the answers to such questions, but also a glimpse into the rarely discussed financial side of the art world. Based on author Philip Hook's thirty-five years of experience in the art market, the book explores various shades of artist (including -isms, Gericault, and suicides), subject and style (from abstract art and banality through surrealism and war), "wall-power," provenance, and market weather Comic, revealing, piquant, splendid, and occasionally absurd, Breakfast at Sotheby's is a book of pleasure and intelligent observation, as engaged with art as it is with the world that surrounds it..

These critical essays on art and artists by T.G. Rosenthal, chosen by the author from his considerable output over more than fifty years of writing and reviewing, focus mainly on what has come to be known as ‘Modern British’ art - art from the 20th century. Rosenthal knew many of his subjects personally and some became friends: Michael Ayrton; Arthur Boyd; Ivon Hitchens; Thelma Hulbert; L. S. Lowry; Sidney Nolan; Paula Rego. There are also essays on Wyndham Lewis, Jack B. Yeats and the paintings of August Strindberg. There is a profile of Walter and Eva Neurath, founders of the art-book publishers Thames & Hudson, the author’s first employers; an essay on Anti-Semitism in England; and an obituary of Matthew Hodgart, who at Cambridge, influenced and developed Rosenthal’s knowledge and passion for literature.

"Modernity as exile tackles the themes of migration, displacement, and multiculturalism in the modern world." "Throughout John Berger's writings, whether an art, literature or sociology, the figure of the stranger signals both the pain of uprooting and the insight gained from 'another way of seeing'." "Nikos Papastergiadis uses this figure to argue that 'exile' is not merely a political or social fact, but is an inner condition, central to the postmodern self. He analyses the cultural dynamics that connect migration and exile, not simply as the negative consequence of contemporary culture, but as its fundamental driving force. Peoples are displaced not only by wars and famine but by economics, tourism, global telecommunications. How this explodes our notions of home, of community and our sense of belonging is the central question addressed by this provocative and powerful book."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

What you will see, during this walk will be some of the city's incredible statues and some of the magnificent buildings of Manchester. We will learn about some of the famous or infamous incidents that took place and we will hear about some of the sons, daughters and residents of, and visitors to, this city. For the less earnest and more casual amongst us, this short journey can be thought of as a moderate stroll around one of today's world significant cities, hopefully in the famous 'Manchester sunshine,' with perhaps a few interesting distractions and stories along the way.
