Where's Art? with Annie Dugan: the word of the weekend - and the week - is "emerge"

Prøve Collective

You still have a few hours left to share "your drawings, photographs, poems, rants, comics, notes, doodles, your abandoned Etsy pages, the true crime theories you’ve obsessively “solved,” your rabbit holes, and your visions for awakening from this long hibernation." Tonight at 1pm is the deadline for submission to the  Prøve Collective's upcoming zine called Emerge

All the submission details are available here.

There's an interesting exhibit at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, Connecticut calledTwenty Twenty, so why don't you invite a friend and check it out?  After all,  the one superpower the pandemic has given us is the ability to travel and visit without ever leaving home.  According to the website, "Twenty Twenty is an exhibition of works on paper rolled out sequentially over the course of five months that presents the work of seven artists who primarily utilize photographic imagery."

And if you want a book with pictures that will also make you think, art historian Alice Procter's The Whole Picture: The colonial story of the art in our museums & why we need to talk about it could be just the ticket.

"Should museums be made to give back their marbles? Is it even possible to 'decolonise' our galleries? Must Rhodes fall?

"From the stolen Wakandan art in Black Panther, to Emmanuel Macron's recent commitment to art restitution, and Beyoncé and Jay Z's provocative music video filmed in the Louvre, the question of decolonising our relationship with the art around us is quickly gaining traction. People are waking up to the seedy history of the world's art collections, and are starting to ask difficult questions about what the future of museums should look like.

"In

The Whole Picture, art historian and Uncomfortable Art Tour guide Alice Procter provides a manual for deconstructing everything you thought you knew about art, and fills in the blanks with the stories that have been left out of the art history canon for centuries."
