Monday Links: The Home Depot-Sized Art Gallery

by Paddy Johnson on February 8, 2016

  • I gotta say, the new Beyonce video “Formation” (dirty) is pretty incredible. Pretty amazing to see such a political video played at the Super Bowl. [The Internet]
  • The Hauser & Wirth in Los Angeles sounds like it will be a sight to behold. It’s 100,000 square feet—the size of a Home Depot—and will be modeled off the Kunsthalle — a nonc-ollecting art museum. Except, of course, that this gallery will sell art. Curator and partner Paul Schimmel is organizing the first show, which will be a historic survey of women working in sculpture. [Culture: High & Low]
  • According to Knoedler & Company’s accountant, apart from the sale of the fakes, the company did not make money. [artnet News]
  • Speaking the Knoedler & Company, Ann Freedman, the former president of New York’s Knoedler gallery has settled a lawsuit with collectors Domenico and Eleanore De Sole over the sale of a forged Mark Rothko purchased from Knoedler in 2004. The piece sold for $8.3 million. The terms have not been disclosed. [Artnews]
  • Quote of the year:

So since Hillary cannot yell, since by the virtue of being sane and not a white man she is forced to be the biggest adult in the room, just like Obama has had to for eight goddamn years, I will yell for her.

FIRST AND FUCKING FOREMOST, COOL, YOU LIKE BERNIE’S WISHES AND DREAMS APPROACH TO POLITICS. “FREE COLLEGE FOR EVERYONE AND A GODDAMN PONY.” YES, THAT SOUNDS FUCKING WONDERFUL BUT DO YOU THINK HILLARY COULD EVEN SAY THOSE WORDS WITHOUT FOX NEWS LITERALLY BURYING HER ALIVE IN TAMPONS AND CRUCIFIXES?
