Just over a decade ago, the International Herald Tribune published an article with the triumphant headline, “India’s art market booming.” The boom, however, didn’t last, and the market deflated following the financial crisis. Fast forward to 2018: Similar stories on the rising Indian market have begun to surface again. But is the country’s art trade really in a more stable position for long-term success today than it was in 2007? Depends on who you ask.
There are quite a few towns and cities that can lay claim to T.S. Eliot’s seminal poem The Waste Land (1922), and Margate is certainly among them. “On Margate Sands / I can connect / Nothing with nothing”, Eliot writes—an encapsulation of the fractured, five-part, Modernist poem that was partly written in the seaside town. This week, Margate’s Turner Contemporary stages an exhibition pulling together more than 60 works that refer to the poem.
Sotheby’s will offer Pablo Picasso’s “Femme au béret et à la robe quadrillée (Marie-Thérèse Walter)” (1937) in its Impressionist and Modern art evening auction in London on 28 February. The painting is likely to be the evening’s top lot, with an estimated £36.5m ($50m) price tag. Showing the woman he called his “golden muse”, the painting also alludes to another pivotal moment in Picasso’s love life. The artist's next mistress, Dora Maar, whom he met in 1935, was very much on the scene.
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".
