If the voice’s call is the origin of speech – with its ability to hail, summon, or bestow a name – then perhaps the hand, raised to touch, or signal at a distance, is its silent counterpart. These two gestures form a call and response that provides the structure for stylus, a project created by Ann Hamilton for the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts.
Now, visitors unable to make it to the museum itself still have a chance to check out the exhibition, explore the galleries and immerse themselves in the images, video, and audio that fill the installation through its online catalogue.
On Friday, November 5, 2010, at 10 am, join the Association of Professional Art Advisors in New York City for a talk with security expert Robert Wittman, author of Priceless – a memoir about his work as the founder of the FBI’s Art Crime Team.

As another step in its history of supporting the art community, Pernod Absinthe has kicked off its 2nd annual contest to find great original art inspired by both the classic liqueur and the year 1805, when Pernod Fils began distilling in France.
The Creator Of Art Contest is an open call for artists to create their own Pernod-inspired works, just as the absinthe-aficionado Impressionists did in their own day. Art history superstars Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, Picasso and Van Gogh were all big fans of the drink.
