Although painters, sculptors, printmakers, still-photographers and installation artists can evoke similar worlds in static media, they can never immerse us in such "other" worlds with as much apparent veracity. And, because the entire installation is dark, viewers wander in a kind of dream state, entering alternative realities at various points in various narratives. This last sentence begins to get at the very difficulty of this exhibition for the viewer.
It is also the first museum in which the art of Pissarro was seen in France, in the last decade of the painter's life, and thus, a perfect place for an exhibition that focuses on the landscapes of his home in the small Norman village of Éragny in the 20 years before the painter's death in 1903. Just this week, I received the -- gasp! -- two-volume press book made for the exhibition. It includes 223 articles in traditional media (daily newspapers, magazines, weeklies, etc.
Seeing the infinity room in the DMA requires some planning because only two people at a time are allowed into the room — and only for 45 seconds! — and patrons need advance, timed tickets. At the appointed slot, one enters the carefully defined space through a door, the interior of which is mirrored and, when closed, is on the same plane as the walls so that all six sides of the room — four walls, floor and ceiling — are completely mirrored.
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".
