Basel, Switzerland At art shows in Germany this month, visitors can enter a secret apartment or walk through a temple built of banned books. Over in Switzerland, others can line up to eat in a hut made of bundles of shiny cookware—a performance by Indian artist Subodh Gupta that opened Monday to VIPs at Art Basel. The fair, part of a marathon of European art events, opens to the public on Thursday and runs through Sunday....
Billionaire banker David Rockefeller collected beetles as a boy, but the trove of paintings, porcelain and silver he gathered over his century-long life could top $700 million when it heads to auction at Christie’s next spring. The Rockefeller estate is poised to be the most expensive art collection the auction industry has ever handled, surpassing designer Yves Saint Laurent’s $484 million estate sale at Christie’s eight years ago...
The art world was stunned earlier this month when a Japanese billionaire paid Sotheby’s $110.5 million for a Jean-Michel Basquiat painting of a black skull, resetting the record for a U.S. artist at auction and infusing the beleaguered art market with a shot of adrenaline. Now, the Basquiat’s newcomer buyer—41-year-old e-commerce mogul Yusaku Maezawa—is getting a closer look by the art establishment.
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".
