Move over, Madonna. Rashaad Newsome is on a mission. The New York City-based multimedia artist wants us to understand the origins of vogue, a dance that entered mainstream consciousness after Madonna’s 1990 hit song and video. Newsome has videos of his own. Rashaad Newsome: ICON, at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art through Dec. 3, includes four video pieces that span the artist’s storied career and provide some new context for understanding vogue.
Most poets have one — maybe two, if they’re lucky. Labels, that is. Hilda Doolittle is known for her precise imagery; Dean Young for effusive humor; Charles Wright is ponderous and always deeply philosophical. Ask me to pin a label on Nick Lantz, a UW-Madison M.F.A. and author of a recent collection titled You, Beast (University of Wisconsin Press), and I won’t know what to tell you.
From jam-packed projector screenings on the Memorial Union Terrace to MMoCA’s Rooftop Cinema, outdoor films seem to be in the very DNA of Madison summers. Perhaps the most gritty and experimental of these is Off the Wall, a video art series put on by Arts + Literature Laboratory (ALL) in partnership with the Madison Film Forum. What sets these screenings apart is their unusual venue.
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".
