The Museum of Capitalism is unusual among institutions that call themselves museums. This is largely because it has no permanent location. After two years of planning, its first physical iteration is now open on the second floor of a massive, empty building in Oakland's Jack London Square. When it closes on August 20, the building will presumably be empty again, but the Museum will continue to exist, its subsequent physical manifestation as yet undetermined.
“Much of the New York that mattered to Hujar,” read one of this exhibition’s wall texts, “was to be found only after sundown.” Following such cues, one might have expected to find a nocturnal kaleidoscope rivaling Brassaï’s Paris or anticipating Nan Goldin’s scenes of New York subculture. Yet the bulk of Peter Hujar’s photography as exhibited in the show—the largest retrospective to date of his work, with more than 150 of his images—took place in the light of day or in well-lit interiors.
European cultural subsidies have long been the envy of American artists and arts organizations. But over the last two years, as austerity-minded conservative governments took office against the backdrop of a deepening fiscal crisis, countries across Europe have targeted the arts for severe cuts.
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".
