An American Icon: Property from the Collection of Joan Didion, the seminal writer and influential critic of American culture, will be up for auction on November 16, organized by Hudson, New York’s Stair Galleries. Highlights include the Celine sunglasses worn in the iconic campaign photographed by Juergen Teller and artworks by Ed Ruscha, Cy Twombly, Richard Serra. Also included are photographs of Didion by Brigitte Lacombe, Annie Liebovitz, Mary Ellen Mark, and Julian Wasser.

2. Art School Horror Stories

In their latest podcast episode titled ‘Art School Horror Stories’ the White Pube asked their audience to submit the strangest things they witnessed in art school. From art schools in the US to France, there was a correlation of weirdness from all the submissions. Prepared to laugh, be freaked out, and be shocked!

3. Hilma af Klint gets the NFT treatment

More than a century ago, Hilma af Klint completed her famous series of paintings Spiral Temple. Fast forward to the present day, and the renowned collection has gotten the NFT treatment on Pharrell Williams’s Web3 Platform. The NFT project offers the only way to acquire works from the series, which will never come to market, set to be released on November 14. I wonder if the clairvoyant would have ever predicted this!?

4. Dua Lipa giving us arty holiday wanderlust

Anyone else got wanderlust from Dua Lipa’s arty holiday in the Naoshima, Inujima, and Teshima islands? Hidden amongst some 3,000 mostly uninhabited islands in the Seto Inland Sea – there lies a cluster of Art Islands filled with surreal art installations, cutting-edge museums, and architectural gems. Via her Instagram feed, Lipa can be seen pictured next to works by James Turrell, and comically inside Kusama’s red and black pumpkin of course.
