Go to the gallery called The School in Kinderhook and choose three works more or less at random: a spiritually resonant African altarpiece made of dung and mud, a detailed 16th-century Spanish oil of a saint and a bulging fluorescent orange-and-black urethane abstraction from 2016. What is going on here? "The Coffins of Paa Joe and the Pursuit of Happiness" seems to have no constraints.
When you have fascinating, gloomy, photogravure-printed photographs of ambitious handmade models, along with the models themselves filling the Massry Gallery, take note. The friendly dystopia imagined — and built, photographed, and filmed — by German artist Lothar Osterburg expands on archetypes of a 1920s kind of vertical city, with things broken or unfinished, and blimps floating by in the fog. Curious? You might start with the featured work at the far end of the gallery.
We're used to the idea that print advertising, and graphic design in general, is an art of some kind — applied art, graphic art, maybe even fine art. And sometimes this kind of design becomes special enough to stand on its own, outlasting its original function, and influencing the other arts. And I'm not just talking the obvious Toulouse-Lautrec posters or the influx of bold modernist designs in the 1920s.
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".
