I have a small wood Buddhist wood statue, and I am trying to determine what culture it is from, who the sculpture depicts, what mudra is being shown, and how it would have originally been displayed. [more inside]
I am interested in looking at art made for the web. Can you provide great examples? [more inside]
I am interested in buying some beautiful facsimiles of illuminated manuscripts and artist's books. Do you have any recommendations, particularly for affordable ones? I can pay up to about $100 / book, but not the thousands of dollars that some facsimiles cost. Any leads would be most appreciated.
I am interested in learning more about illuminated manuscripts--from ancient times to today, both sacred and secular. I also want to look at some of them in their entirety. What are the coolest illuminated manuscripts that have been digitized and made available online? What makes them so great? Also, are there any great videos about illuminated manuscripts? Any leads would be most appreciated.
I am looking for some good documentaries about digital art. What do you recommend? Biographical movies about artists that make art with PhotoShop would be great. Movies about the history of CGI would be fascinating. Documentaries about art made for the internet could also be fun to see. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
I am looking for some great movies about the history of Jewish art and architecture. I am most curious to learn about ancient and medieval Judaica, but if you know of treatments of modern Jewish art and architecture that would be good to know about too. Any recommendations would be most appreciated.
What are the most unusual, non-traditional, online comics? I am especially interested in learning about comics that are visually different. For example, I would love to learn about comics that blend photographs with drawing, are interlinked in a non-linear way, or are all one continuous strip rather than divided up.
What are the most interesting documentary films about the history of video games? I am especially interested in anything that discusses the history of game graphics.
What books that are printed with unusual techniques, using unusual paper, do you recommend looking at? [more inside]
What are the earliest examples of Internet-based art? Are they still online? Do they date all the way back to the 1960s when the Internet was founded? Are there earlier examples of computer-based art from before the advent of the Internet?
I am building a collection of books to teach the history of fine art book making, and I would like to find copies of the Torah, Bible, and Quran that are visually pleasing. Do you recommend any specific editions? Unfortunately, my total budget for a starter collection is only $500, so I would especially value suggestions that are modest in price. At the minimum I would like to show my students a range of calligraphy, typesetting, and illumination, but I suspect that I can find some really interesting editions that do much more. All suggestions are welcome.
What is the name of the contemporary artist who made an installation during the 1990s showing the aftermath of a suicide from jumping off of a building? The art was quite gory and controversial. Any leads would be most appreciated.
What are the most interesting examples of art censorship from the past 20 years? I am considering how the government and public institutions shield the public from specific imagery. I am aware of the recent controversy at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington-- removing a video by David Wojnarowicz. Other examples of art censorship for sexual, political, ethical, religious, or other reasons would be most appreciated.
Do you know of any interesting examples of visual art that focus on the experience of blindness? It seems to me that it would be an interesting paradox to make a visual statement about a lack of seeing.
What are your favorite art magazines, and why do you find them interesting? I have been looking at Artforum and ARTnews, but they are pretty dry ... lots of pictures and some facts, but little gossip or other interesting commentary. I want something with great articles to sit down and read.
What are the best movies or documentaries about modern art??
