Performance at Tate: Into the Space of Art “explores the history of performance art at Tate from the 1960s to 2016. Arising from a two-year research project, this major online publication offers a new appraisal of the place of performance art and performativity in the museum through essays and case studies on individual artworks and events. It also publishes for the first time audio, films and videos, photographs, museum documents and reviews drawn from Tate’s Archive, showing the richness and depth of the gallery’s engagement with performance.”

British Pathé was the source for filmed world news, entertainment, and general oddities and information, from the beginning of the 20th century for the next 50 years. Their ‘cinema newsreels’ were shown before the feature in movie theaters in Britain as well as many other parts of the world, and the little rooster logo was iconic. There are now 85,000 historical newsreel clips on every imaginable topic at their site. [Right: screenshot of fascinating (really!) film about wallpaper manufacturing.]
They are free to view online, and can be downloaded with a registration. (Read more about use licensing and restrictions here. )

Earlier this year, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum “celebrated” the 25th anniversary of the as-yet-unsolved heist of 13 works of art from their collection. Now the FBI has released a video taken the night before the heist that appears to show a night guard letting an unauthorized guest into the museum. Authorities are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying this visitor who entered the museum through the same door as the thieves 24 hours before the heist.
UPDATE: Coming in on the heels of this released video, it now appears that the suspects are dead
UPDATE #2: The name of one of the suspects has been identified [via CBS]

A team of 40 French technicians and artists have spent the last year working on a “Living Mona Lisa,” which uses a motion sensor (similar to those employed in interactive video games) to produce a version of the portrait that can follow viewers’ movements with her eyes and change her expression. As Florent Aziosmanoff, who conceived the initial concept, told the Telegraph, “Leonardo da Vinci tried to make her come alive, so it’s appropriate that we’ve taken his intentions a few steps further.”
Digital versions will be produced and marketed to go on sale in the autumn in different sizes and formats, such as digital paintings for “a few hundred euros” or miniature versions hung on a pendant, perhaps surrounded by jewels.
