ATW links for the week of September 28 – October 4

atw-header-bigger-dimensions.jpg

Linda – The Turner Prize exhibition opened at Tate Britain this week. Here is a short video on the history of the turner prize and here is a short article where you can read a bit more about this year’s artists.

Logan –¬†Ai Wei Wei has done it again–created something completely original and politically charged! As of the 27th, his 7 site-specific installations created for Alcatraz are on view for the public. There have been numerous studies that prove the many benefits that art has on the incarcerated. Wouldn’t it be great if he started creating similar work for functioning prisons next?

Richard –¬†Interesting court case about being an artist/professor and what the IRS thinks of you….
