  • Hilarious! The L.A. MOCA drama told in GIFs. [C-Monstah]
  • A new art(ish) blog based in Copenhagen launches with reviews of international shows and the odd interview and news item. Not a lot of critical perspective here, but a reasonable start. [Recent Future Archive]
  • MOCA is close to working out a five-year agreement with The National Gallery in DC, which will include collaborating on programming and research and exhibitions. This might help ward off the LACMA merger. [NYTimes]
  • Vine hack. Now you can make 20 second videos if you want to. [AnimalNY] Thank-you Jordan Smilovic [Brooklyn Web Developers]
  • If you’re in Europe, nobody’s going to stop you from watching porn on your computer. It’s porn IRL that’ll get you in trouble. [Mashable]
  • Guggenheim Museum Director Richard Armstrong writes a letter to Hyperallergic’s Senior Editors Kyle Chayka and Jillian Steinhauer in response to “When Artspeak Means Oppression” penned last week by contributor Mostafa Heddaya.

  • The Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA) announced last week that the museum will be laying off 21 people (11 percent of its staff). Why are they doing this?
