Annette Lemieux did not intend for “Mise en Scène,” her new exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts opening Sept. 24, to reflect the current political moment. She started planning it before the election. It would be about film and revolve around movies she loved growing up. But those films — Fritz Lang’s “M,” Robert Mulligan’s “To Kill a Mockingbird,” and François Truffaut’s “Fahrenheit 451” — address themes of fear and oppression that feel chillingly pertinent today.
CHELSEA — Nobody knows how Nüshu, a language used solely by women, came to be. Academics have speculated that the language, used in China’s Hunan province, sprang from a patriarchal society that limited women’s education. Today, only a handful of women know Nüshu. That knowledge may be more burden than treasure, suggests Furen Dai in her installation “The Language-Producing Factory,” at Gallery@Spencer Lofts. Language fascinates Dai.
There are really only two stories: A person goes on a journey or a stranger comes to town. The novelist John Gardner is said to have coined this notion. “Artists in Exile: Expressions of Loss and Hope,” at Yale University Art Gallery through Dec. 31, hinges on the first, exploring the grief, yearning, and renewal that accompanies leaving home. A show at the Harvard Art Museums contemplates the latter.
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".
