SALEM — Cod float into a golden sky outside the old Custom House. An elephant lounges nearby in a wing chair, and a Chinese woman peddles buns outside Derby Light. “The Augmented Landscape,” presented by Boston Cyberarts at the Salem Maritime National Historic Site, overlays digital art on the park’s buildings, green, and wharf. It works like Pokemon Go, with an app called Layar on your smart phone or tablet. Instead of chasing goofy characters, walk through virtual art installations.
Ever feel jammed up, disrespected, misunderstood, humiliated, alone? My friend, the paintings of Dana Schutz are for you. Schutz makes extraordinary paintings, rambunctious, bright, and pained all at once, and her themes spring straight from the parts of ourselves we hide. Her self-titled show, at the Institute of Contemporary Art through Nov. 26, is a pageant of shame, fear, sorrow, and exhausted surrender to chaos.
‘A Summer Proposal” sounds like a rom-com title: Here’s the daffy tale of a hard-edged modernist space and art that tries hard to fit in. The exhibition at City Hall, organized by Paul C. Ha, director of the MIT List Visual Arts Center, features work from a terrific slate of artists responding to the building’s architecture. Modern architecture with a monumental bent can pose special challenges to exhibiting art. Here those include brick walls and an open layout that discourages quiet communion.
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".
