Art Rapture is only two weeks away with a great lineup of local and international artists, including the introducing of Vancouver’s very own Taka Sudo. This is the second edition of the art show this year that is themed on Prohibition. See what the artists are preparing to show and don’t miss the show: get your tickets here. Taka, when and why did you come to Vancouver? First time, I came to Whistler in 2002 as a ski bum. When did you start creating art?
Art Rapture is only two weeks away with a great lineup of local and international artists for Vancouverites to enjoy. In the build up to this year’s event, we are introducing some of the artists who are taking part. This year we’re focussing on Vancouver’s own Nikki Pecasso. Nikki, tell us about your work, how you got started? I started this body of work around three years ago.
Art Rapture 2017 is right around the corner. In what promises to be the most exhilarating urban art show you’ve ever seen in Vancouver, Art Rapture is bringing local and international artists works together for this year’s PROHIBITION: nothing but trouble event on September 22 and 23. Ahead of the show we’re previewing some of the talent on display at this year’s event, starting with local Vancouver talent Mark Ollinger. I’ve always been drawn to working in public spaces.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
