Quincy, Massachusetts (PRWEB) January 09, 2014
Artscope Magazine's managing editor, Brian Goslow, responded with insight when CNN called upon him to offer his perspective in a front page op-ed piece about President George W. Bush’s artwork and the greater implication of celebrity art in the creative economy. Goslow provided commentary that kick-started a developing discussion that is sharing and feeding through mainstream news and arts publications across the globe since its initial publication. Coming in the January/February, 2014 issue of artscope Magazine, Goslow highlights the significance of the public interest that continues to surround the CNN op-ed piece. In Golsow’s words, “We experienced first-hand what kind of art is finding its way into the larger public discourse these days on November 20 when we received a call from CNN asking for our thoughts on the painting of former President George W. Bush. Within 48 hours of “Bush paints, but is he any good?” going live that evening, over 2,500 people had commented on the article. What would any New England art organization, artist or institution give for that kind of response?”
Artscope now employs an integrated and seamless multi media content management system to push audio and video streams through its mobile app and digital edition. The issue’s centerfold competition features a still shot from a short animated film, which can be viewed in multi-media on artscpe’s website and mobile app, and in artscope’s digital edition (available on Apple Newstand.) The decision to make animation the topic of the issue’s centerfold competition illustrates the media company’s initiative to publish multi- media content in order to enhance the reader’s experience.
Artscope announces several new technological developments this month. It is now possible to purchase subscriptions, advertisements, and merchandise on artscope’s website through a new shopping cart system. Also, the online artscope Zine now incorporates sponsored stories, a new approach to advertising that are staples of interactive media giants like Facebook and Buzzfeed. Finally, the artscope mobile app now includes a map feature with every gallery and museum listing, so that readers can find locations and get directions with the tap of a finger.
Artscope Magazine’s January/February issue’s content also reflects the media company’s innovative approach to publishing. Artscope breaks attention- grabbing articles and reviews. The cover story of the issue features B. Amore’s moving exhibition, “invisible Odysseys”, a collection of sculptures by illegal migrant dairy workers living in Vermont. The piece from this collection that is the issue’s cover image pictures a three dimentional map of these migrants’ journey. Also headlined on the cover, “5000 Moving Parts,” a kinetic art exhibition now on display at the MIT Art Museum, showcases works of art set in perpetual mechanical motion. Though the Dadaists originated the concept of kinetic art long ago, the title of the exhibition, the idea of 5,000 moving parts working as one has never been more poignant, and artscope’s integrated multi media vehicles evidence this.
On April 4, 2014, Artscope Magazine will host “Light Up the Arts”, a free celebration that is open to the public to kick start its ninth year as a company with a gathering to unite all people, organizations, and companies that want to participate in today’s artistic landscape. The event will take place at Adelson Galleries in Boston, Massachusetts, and will include a silent auction, an ipad mini raffle, drinks and hors d’oeuvres.
