Their research, reported in the most recent edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, shows the piece to be approximately 37,000 years old and offers rich evidence of the role art played in the daily lives of Early Aurignacian humans. The research team, comprised of more than a dozen scientists from American and European universities and research institutions, has been excavating at the site of the discovery—Abri Castanet—for the past 15 years. Abri Castanet and its sister site Abri Blanchard have long been recognized as being among the oldest sites in Eurasia bearing artifacts of human symbolism.

It was only in 1994 that the term ‘curator’ was first used in India, when art critic and cultural theorist Geeta Kapur was invited to select works from the collection of the National Gallery of Modern Art.
This was the start of the curator being seen as a legitimate figure. She, among a host of other players, like gallerists, collectors and auctioneers, began to make their presence felt amidst the growing private sector and the art market. Curators like Curators like Grant Watson, Suman Gopinath and Sunil Gupta have contributed greatly to the curatorial practice in India helping Indian artists are make their way into international exhibitions and biennales.
Exceptional curatorial practices in India have contributed in drawing attention to Indian Art at an international stage which allowed for greater foreign influence that feeds back into a national forum in which Indian art, ideas and criticism exhale more effectively into the atmosphere.

LONDON.- The newspaper coverage was troubling: London's huge international showcase was beset by planning problems, local opposition and labor woes — and the transport was a mess. It sounds like the 2012 Olympics, but this was the Great Exhibition of 1851 generating stories of late trains, unscrupulous landlords and dangerous overcrowding. Coverage of the event is found in 4 million pages of newspapers from the 18th and 19th centuries being made available online Tuesday by the British Library, in what head of newspapers Ed King calls "a digital Aladdin's Cave" for researchers. The online archive is a partnership between the library and digital publishing firm Brightsolid, which has been scanning 8,000 pages a day from the library's vast periodical archive for the past year and plans to digitize 40 million pages over the next decade.
"People were saying, 'This isn't good, I can't ride my horse in Hyde Park,'" said King. "We've got 200 years of newspapers locked away," King said. Couture Fashion Week - Fashion Week, Fashion Show Tickets. Is Art Patron Ronald Lauder What's Wrong With America?, Occupy Wall Street Plans Gallery Of Its Own, and More. – Not So Laudable: It's notable, isn't it, that in the run-up to that bacchanal of affluent excess known as Art Basel Miami Beach the New York Times has chosen Ronald Lauder, the famed art collector and Neue Galerie co-founder, as its poster child for the tax-eluding "superelite" behind the "widening income gap between the richest and the rest of society"?
Buying his first artwork — a Schiele — with his allowance and then buying himself onto the Met's board at 32, Lauder (son of Estee, brother of Whitney patron Leonard) has artfully kept his tax dollars from philistine government hands through a virtuosic mastery of loop-hole-finding legerdemain.

Benetton ads draw criticism from White House, Vatican. An advertising campaign that depicts U.S. President Barack Obama kissing two male world leaders on the mouth drew a critical response from the White House on Thursday.
Skip to next paragraph Subscribe Today to the Monitor Click Here for your FREE 30 DAYS ofThe Christian Science MonitorWeekly Digital Edition "The White House has a longstanding policy disapproving of the use of the president's name and likeness for commercial purposes,'' said White House Spokesman Eric Schultz. The "Unhate'' campaign for Italian clothing firm Benetton showed various world leaders kissing, including Obama lip-locked with Chinese President Hu Jintao and Venezuela's Hugo Chavez, a longtime Washington adversary. The White House jealously guards Obama's image and objected last year when a garment company transformed a picture of him, in what appeared to be one its winter coats during a trip to China, into a billboard overlooking Times Square in New York.
