  • The Parsons Festival of talks, workshops, and openings is in full swing. We’re most likely to see the MFA Design and Technology Exhibition, which opens Wednesday night. [Parsons]

  • An infographic of common names in Great Britain. [Uncertainty of Identity]

  • Chicago Magazine has produced a version of Art F City’s STUFF for Contemporary Art Daily’s Forrest Nash. [Chicago Magazine]
