KPCC cultural correspondent Marc Haefele reviews “Playing with Fire: Paintings by Carlos Almaraz,” at LACMA until December 3. Carlos Almaraz was not a great Chicano painter. He was a great painter, period. You can see for yourself at LACMA’s new exhibit, “Playing with Fire.”Almaraz was born in 1941 in Mexico City, but his parents quickly moved … first to Chicago, then to East LA in 1950. His experience of these widely differing environments probably inflected his vision of the world.
When you think of artist Marc Chagall, you think of paintings of snowy Byelorussian villages with mystic lovers in the sky and fiddlers on the roof. Now, as KPCC's arts correspondent Marc Haefele tells us, we get a totally different Chagall -- costume designer -- in "Chagall: Fantasies for the Stage," at LACMA into early January. "Chagall: Fantasies for the Stage," at LACMA's Resnick Pavilion, is a surprise and delight.
In Marissa Merz’ Turin apartment, you couldn’t the tell the art studio from the living space. And at 91, she is still producing art there ... art that often reflects its domestic origin but also is so singular and assertive it seems to tap you on your shoulder and tell you to turn around and look at it. Merz became active in Italy over 50 year ago as the only woman in the '60's avant garde movement called Arte Povera (Art from Poverty). Now she is the only member still active.
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".
