Honest Ed's does a turn as an art gallery | Visual Culture and Communication | Scoop.it
Honest Ed's is already something of a museum, so the idea to host a series of art installations at the store this summer as part of the Koffler Centre for the Arts off-site program makes a good deal of sense.

Are you an introverted or extroverted street photographer? | Eric Kim

Are you an introverted or extroverted street photographer? | Eric Kim | Visual Culture and Communication | Scoop.it

In American society, it is often frowned upon to be an introvert. Starting from primary school, teachers generally force introverted children to participate (even though they may not want to) and treat being introspective as a ”problem”. If you think about the most successful people in America, they are often the extroverts– as they often make bold claims and are great at interacting with others. The problem is that extroverted leaders  screw up by being too bold, whereas introspective leaders often perform better by thinking problems out before addressing them...

In street photography, it is not ”better” to be an introverted or extroverted street photographer. Both have different styles, and different approaches. These are some things i have noticed in terms of the differences...

Curate Your Art Collection with Pictify

Curate Your Art Collection with Pictify | Visual Culture and Communication | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Pictify is a new web-based curation service which allows you to put together, publish and share, visual art collection of any kind.

 

This is a great tool for those in love with art, as much as for those who need to organize, present and promote artists' work.

 

At Pictify, most curated collections are built around paintings, sculptures, photography and drawings created by users who are passionate about a specific artist, genre or historical time. 

 

But Pictify offers a tremendous opportunity to museums and art gallery owners, managers and curators, as it offers them an easy way to showcase their existing collections as well as upcoming ones.

 

From the official site: "As a gallery or museum you can feature your artists and the works in your collection on Pictify. You can show individual art works, preview an upcoming exhibition, and organise works in albums by artist or medium."

 

P.S.: Just like Kullect.com, Pictify is a specialized content curation service catering to a specific type of content and user interested in art. Much less generic than Pinterest, and much more focused on a specific area.

 

Expect more special-interest curation sites to emerge soon in other fields.


The service is free to use.

Getting Started: http://pictify.com/about/getting-started/  ;
