Several years ago I stopped into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in West Hollywood to visit a friend who had unexpectedly landed there for an emergency procedure. Cedars had a well-known program of installing actual art in patients' rooms, rather than bland designer graphics or cheap reproductions. My friend was a well-respected museum curator and critic, so I was especially puzzled to encounter an ordinary scarf unceremoniously taped to the wall opposite her bed.
"What's that?" I asked.
"My scarf," she moaned. "Underneath is the ugliest watercolor I've ever seen. It's making me sick."
Application deadline: Friday 4 September at 14:00 hours (GMT)
The British Council is launching an innovative programme to find an international curator to select its final exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery.
Following on the heels of Michael Craig-Martin, Jeremy Deller, Nicholas Penny and Paula Rego, a fifth curator is to be selected through an imaginative competition for curators worldwide.
Female producers, directors, and journalists from around the world can submit video and radio programs about women who are making a difference to a competition that will award US$750 to various winners. Deadline: October 16.
The contest, sponsored by the International Association of Women in Radio and Television (IAWRT) invites entries between 20 and 90 minutes long for film, and 15 to 60 minutes for radio.
Submitted documentaries must be about women who making a difference on their lives or on the lives of other women. Enteries should have been broadcast between November 2007 and October 2009.
Winners will be announced at this year's IAWRT biennal conference in Cambodia in November.

A.I.R. Gallery Presents a New Opportunity for Women Artists:
"THE MAN I WISH I WAS"
A Juried + Invitational Exhibition
In January 2010 A.I.R. Gallery will host "The Man I Wish I Was" a month-long, partially juried, partially invitational exhibition. In keeping with the feminist tradition of irreverent internal-critique and self-vigilance the intent of the show is to question how gender perception relates to personal identity.
We look forward to unanticipated perspectives and encourage an open interpretation of "The Man I Wish I Was."
October 2, 2009 at midnight online, 6pm if hand delivery, or postmark October 2 by mail.

This is a great ongoing series on National Public Radio right now about how artists make a living. They've interviewed artists of all kinds - poets, dancers, writers, musicians, performers, and more. I'm really enjoying it.
