Allegra Pesenti has been hired as associate director and senior curator of UCLA Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts, which is part of the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. It marks a homecoming for Pesenti, who was the curator of the Grunwald Center Curator from 2007 to 2013. She had then gone to be chief curator and curator at large at the Menil Collection in Houston and was involved in developing the forthcoming Menil Drawing Institute.
Rene Ricard, the art critic, chronicler of downtown Manhattan, poet, painter, gadabout and gadfly who died on Feb. 1 at the age of 67, was also a fan of Negronis. As scores of people ducked out of the cool drizzle into the Eldridge Street Synagogue for a memorial in his honor on a recent Thursday evening, they found bartenders not only steadily pouring wine but also shaking the cocktails. They’d be at it all night.
It’s a mystery how certain elements—patrons, bartenders, architecture, maybe a few special drinks—come together to make a bar really and truly great. Early on Wednesday evening the Frankfurt–based artist Tobias Rehberger stood behind the counter of a tiny bar in the basement of the Hôtel Americano and tried to explain to a few reporters the appeal of his favored hometown spot, Bar Oppenheimer. “It’s just, I don’t know, a nice atmosphere there,” he said, holding a rocks glass with a wedge of lime.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
