- Have you seen this video of Kacy Catanzaro killing the American Ninja Warrior course? Get to it! She’s the first woman to have ever completed the finalist course and she’s a force of nature! [Jezebel]
- Rex Sorgatz continues to investigate art forgeries and their place in the market. Here, he uses the BBC television series Fake or Fortune as a starting point to investigate why a forgery will increase or decrease in value. Follow the money. [The Medium]
- In another piece on replicas also published this week, Sorgatz talks about how copies were not always considered lesser than the original, and are often more true to the original than the actual work itself. (Their colors have had less time to fade or crack.) “The copy is the original”. [The Medium]
- Speaking of fakes: Mark Lawrence’s collection of priceless art, including a never-before-seen copy of Edvard Munch‘s The Scream, might all be a ruse. [Artnet]
- Read this Bell Hooks interview with Lil’ Kim from 1997. Incredible. [PaperMag]
- Massimiliano Gioni has been promoted to “Artistic Director” at the New Museum. How is this different from his role as curator and Associate Director? According to Director Lisa Phillips, he will take on a greater role in planning the museum’s next stage of growth. No idea what this means, but it sounds like more fundraising responsibilities.
