Short and sweet, here’s what’s caught my eye this week:
*The Art Newspaper interviews Bruce Naumann after he won the Golden Lion at Venice. (via Art Observed).
*Artnet analyzes the art stimulus package.
*Bloggers, take note: now you can filter Google image searches for those under a Creative Commons License.
*In New York: Slideluck PotShow XIII now accepting submissions (deadline is Tuesday, July 21st). The theme for this edition of the show is “Now.”
*Dear Dash Snow, by William Pohida.
*West Coast Experimental film legend Chick Strand, a founder of film distributors Canyon Cinema, died last weekend at the age of 78. Read a moving tribute to her here, and a more in-depth profile of her in the L.A. Weekly here (this last, via Spout Blog).
*A trailer for the upcoming Rural Studio documentary at Unbeige.
*Do a good deed, help a new Chicago teacher stock his class with books (via Windy Citizen).
*I am deeply ashamed of myself for really wanting to see this movie: from the folks that brought you Jackass, The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia. See a trailer for the film below, and watch Richard Metzger interview its director Julian Nitzberg here. If this film ever screens in Chicago, someone please let me know. (via Boing Boing).
