Tech Tuesday: Designed and produced by Drexel University, in collaboration with the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Physics at the Art Museum is a new iPad app that uses artworks to explain physics concepts. To demonstrate the concept of torque - the tendency of a force to rotate an object about an axis - the app shows Ghost (1964), a hanging mobile by Alexander Calder. A great educational tool that showcases the scientific skill of the artist, Physics at the Art Museum is presented by Subaru and free to download on any iPad.
Alexander Calder: The Art of Invention, the inaugural exhibition at Pace Menlo Park’s pop-up gallery space, is on view at 300 El Camino Real in Menlo Park, CA, from April 16 through May 13, 2014.

“If Mr. Bush’s portrait of Mr. Putin were an anonymous find in a thrift shop, most of us would happily snap it up. That these works are by Mr. Bush makes them more complicated, and useful as another lens with which to examine the personality and legacy of a man who may remain the greatest known unknown of his own presidency.”

It’s nice to know I’m not the only one who is projecting.
"It’s not just what I say about the work…it’s about what I miss—what I couldn’t see in the images of the work." —Gabriel Orozco
New episode from Art21’s Exclusive series: Gabriel Orozco conducts what he calls a “Mirror Crit”—during which he presents a student’s artwork as if it is his own.
Orozco conceived of the Mirror Crit model after doing one-on-one critiques with college art students, where they typically explain or defend their work. Orozco sought an alternative to help students better understand what their images communicate. He discusses each photograph without having previous knowledge of the student’s background or intentions, allowing the images to, in a sense, speak for themselves. The Mirror Crit session in this film features the work of Maximiliano Siñani, and took place as part of Gabriel Orozco’s Spanish Lessons project at Marian Goodman Gallery, New York, in late 2013.
