Has anyone been reading anything today that’s not about the Brexit vote to leave? Like pretty much every other member of the art world, I don’t think this was a positive outcome. It leaves the EU unstable in a time of great instability, it has already affected British markets, and it almost certainly will create problems for arts institutions overseas.
But my thoughts are not nearly as interesting as what I saw online today. A few headlines worth a look if you haven’t seen them already.
- Upon hearing the news that Britain had voted to leave the EU, UK residents madly googled “What is the EU?”.
- One voter actually cited lavish arts spending as a reason for leaving the EU. (Hat tip: @hragv)
- Donald Trump is an idiot.
- Troubled star Lindsay Lohan demonstrates that she knows more about the Brexit than the GOP Presidential Nominee. (Hat tip: @espires)
