It’s been a huge week in art, if you live in Miami. On these shores it was the Turner Prize. And there was no escaping either.

  • Meanwhile the Art Newspaper pulled together a compendium of opinions on the parlous state of the art (fair) world
  • Art Info also posted a slideshow that could make you despair to not have a million or two reserved for such occasions
  • News abounded this week. From The Independent: two men were jailed for stealing a Henry Moore and selling it for £46. And a Raphael sketch went for considerably more
  • RIP Oscar Niemeyer, curve-loving architect responsible for Brazilia. He had a good innings, designing a 2003 Serpentine Pavilion in his 90s

  • A Hyperallergic review of Phyllida Barlow suggests a transatlantic continuation of the form she hit last year at Hauser & Wirth Picadilly
