A depressing week for current affairs not least for lack of art angles:

  • Instead we have a link to a Q&A with a very terse William Eggleston from the Independent
  • Meanwhile a serious critique of some watercolours by less radical artist, Prince Charles
  • Hennessy Youngman has released this half hour cut of so-called CVS Bangers. It is tres amusant
  • Astute readers will notice my use of French. Well, I’ve been inspired by Artnet’s contemporary art glossary
  • A joy forever: John Hamm, aka Don Draper, popped into Sesame Street to explain the meaning of the word sculpture
  • The harmless school of advertising: DDB Paris have scooped a D&AD award with a clever literacy campaign
  • Great minds think alike, but which great mind said it best. Whoworeitbetter plays snap with art (via AnimalNY)
  • Someone has lovingly animated an interview with the late great David Foster Wallace. See Brain Pickings
  • From sublime to ridiculous, this week also saw the arrival of a monkey fart as art. See Hyperallergic
  • And from the ridiculous to the ideal: a wooden slide in a library which doubles as a screening room.
