Officials at the Centre Pompidou have confirmed that the Paris museum is expanding its empire with plans to open an offshoot branch in Shanghai. More than 20 exhibitions drawn from the holdings of the Beaubourg Gallery will be shown in the new outpost, called Le Centre Pompidou Shanghai (West Bund), which is based in a wing of the new 25,000 sq. m West Bund Art Museum designed by the UK architect David Chipperfield.
Damien Hirst’s two-venue extravaganza in Venice, Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable (until 3 December), has been widely interpreted as an attempt by the former bad boy of British art, now millionaire celebrity, to revive his market in the wake of weakening sales and critical panning in recent years. Hirst is not the only one hoping for a bounce-back.
Art storage is a booming, global business, worth over $1bn a year today. Simon Hornby, the president of Crozier Fine Arts, which has warehouses in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Newark and others further afield in Delaware and Connecticut, reckons that 80% or even more of all the world’s art is in storage at any one time. The Crozier warehouse in Chelsea, close by the Hudson River, was built in 1923, at a time when the area was bustling with transportation and stowage of everything from coal to dry goods.
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".
