Guggenheim Plans Second New York Location

wai

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum will be adding a second location in New York, where it will “consolidate its staff and art storage into one efficient, multiuse building with a dynamic public programming component,” according to an online job listing. The news was first reported earlier today in the Art Newspaper, though a job listing on the Guggenheim’s website containing the information mentioned in that report seems to be the source. The notice, for the position of “Curator, Urban Studies and Digital Initiatives,” has been up for at least five months, and explains that the job in question is tied to both the Guggenheim Helsinki and a local expansion project called “Collection Center”:.....Continue Reading

“Roads! Where we’re going we don’t need roads!”

Back to the Future

MBALE, Uganda-My goal is to help set up the world’s first commercial cargo drone route in Africa by 2016. It will be about 80 kilometres long and will connect several towns and villages.

But they will evolve into larger and heavier craft until they can lift 20 kilos or more over distances of several hundred kilometres. The purpose of the first route will be to save lives, show the value of cargo drones in Africa- and to raise money to build other routes. To me, this first route is a spectral version of the Liverpool and Manchester railway.

Looking at Life Inside a Skyscraper-Turned-Squat

In a little under a decade, the Centro Financiero Confinanzas, or “Tower of David,” in Caracas, Venezuela, has achieved almost mythical status. After being dreamed up by billionaire David Brillembourg in 1990, construction halted on the building in 1994, when a third of the country’s banks failed. In 2007, squatters spurred by then-President Hugo Chavez moved in. The skyscraper became a poster child for Latin American poverty and crime - documented in The New Yorker, immortalized on Homeland.....Continue Reading
