Culture Critic Greg Tate Has Died – The cultural critic who influenced a generation with his writing, especially on hip-hop and Black American culture, died on December 7 at the age of 64. Tate was a staff writer at the Village Voice and the author of several books including the acclaimed Flyboy in the Buttermilk: Essays on Contemporary America (1992). “I decided that what Black culture needs is a popular poststructuralism—accessible writing bent on deconstructing the whole of black culture,” Tate wrote in 1986. He was visiting professor of Africana studies at Brown University and the Louis Armstrong Visiting Professor at Columbia University’s Center for Jazz Studies. A skilled guitarist, Tate was also the founder

Ancient Mummies with Gold Tongues Found in Minya, Egypt –

If you found yourself intrigued by an ancient mummy with a tongue wrapped in golden foil unearthed in Alexandria earlier this year, you are in luck: two more mummies like it have been discovered at a site in Minya, Egypt.

On Sunday, the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities said on Facebook that a University of Barcelona–led archaeological mission had begun researching two burial tombs that may date back to the 26th Dynasty, which is believed to span from 664 B.C.E. to 525 B.C.E. One of those gravesites had never before been excavated.

The archaeologists turned up two bodies—one a man, the other a woman. The man’s tomb had been totally sealed, making it a rare find. The woman’s quartz coffin, however, had already been opened, and according to the National, some of the objects contained within were not in good condition. Alongside the woman’s body, there were green

The 5 Best Techno Songs From 1995 To 1999

Somehow, though, the electronic messages were the stronger ones, the ones we ate up, that left us desperate to break out and at the same time, afraid we weren’t normal.

Art galleries are the perfect settings for exhibiting art, generally visual art such as paintings, sculptures, and photography. I’m ashamed to say I’ve never heard of this guy, but his paintings are wonderful – full of life and texture. Nice Hub, John. National Portrait Gallery and Smithsonian Museum of American Art – (2 hours) – We were able to review quite a bit of American History while walking through these two museums, which are connected by a fabulous courtyard. The courtyard is covered and has a small water area for the kids to play in. It is the perfect spot for a picnic lunch! Tip: Do note that this museum does not open until … Read the rest

A Look Back at Art News in 2021, From NFTs to Restitution

If we’re being honest, 2021 hasn’t been any better than 2020. Any hopes of “normalcy” were dashed as the alphabet of COVID-19 variants grew longer. As the pandemic raged, the political sphere erupted in chaos, workers across the globe took a stand against exploitation, and we were forced to learn what NFTs are.

Hyperallergic journalists spent the year reporting on the stories most pressing in the cultural sector, from the January 6 Capitol attack to a stall on the Sacklers’ ability to artwash their reputations through philanthropy.

Staff reporters Hakim Bishara and Valentina Di Liscia, along with contributors like Sarah Rose Sharp and Cassie Packard, have worked diligently throughout the difficult year to keep readers up to date. As our publication’s scope has grown, so has our newsroom, with staff reporter Jasmine Liu joining just last week. I can assure you that as we enter the new year, these writers,

Often sold with the 1970 concert we talked about earlier, despite the multiple live releases from 1972 this has a handful of reasons that make it worthy of attention.

Vector Art is a technique, which means art created with vector-based programs. Any new technology can affect a democracy and the way it functions. Information and communication technologies can support, undermine, or restructure the work of policy makers such as party officials, members of parliament and other bureaucrats. Television, for example, changed the way parliament operated and greatly increased the influence of the media in politics.

Christie’s NFT Auction Led with OpenSea Fails to Impress –

While some auction houses and galleries are attempting to launch their own NFT platforms, Christie’s is experimenting with an alternative route. Bidding closed last night on a Christie’s NFT auction that took place entirely on OpenSea, one of the leading NFT platforms, as opposed to on Christie’s own website. By tapping into the existing technical infrastructure that OpenSea has already built, Noah Davis, Christie’s head of digital sales, hopes to launch the auction house into the future.

“I see no way for us to do this off the blockchain and with manual processes, the old way we used to do it,” Davis said in an interview ahead of the sale.

The auction took place December 4–7. Prior to bidding, the pieces offered where exhibited at Art Basel Miami Beach in an experience titled “The Gateway.” Christie’s worked with the team at nft now, an NFT news site, on curation,

A Nigerian Medical Student Wondered Why His Textbooks Only Depict White Patients. So He Drew His Own Illustrations—and They Went Viral

What is missing from medical textbooks? Illustrations showing non-white bodies. This lack of representation has long been the status quo, but Chidiebere Ibe, a 25-year-old first-year medical student at Ukraine’s Kyiv Medical University, is hoping to help change that—starting by making his own medical illustrations featuring Black men, women, and children. His work has found an eager audience online among medical professionals and laypeople alike.

“Textbooks are essential to medical training,” Ibe wrote on YouTube. “They walk medical trainees through conditions they will encounter during their practice. The skin is an important organ that protects us and can signal when something is wrong in our body. Yet, most medical illustrations are on the Caucasian skin. This lack of diversity has important implications for medical trainees and their future patients because many conditions and signs look different based on the patient’s skin color.”

On November 24, Ibe posted a
