Monday Links: Beer Buys Friends and Butts Are Back

  • It's amazing what buying people over $100,000 worth of beer will do to an artist's career. Cyprien Gaillard, who won the Nationalgalerie's €50,000 prize back in September, has now won the People's Choice award for the same exhibition. [Artinfo]
  • We just found this YouTube video of Julian Schnabel giving advice and his words of wisdom seem to reflect the arc of this artist’s career. Sample advice: “If you win, you win, and if you lose, you win.”
  • SOPA's dead; it's not dead. Facing a presidential veto, the bill may be over, but this isn't stopping fears over PIPA. No word yet about how this will affect the Emergency NY Tech Meetup this Wednesday, January 18th. We’re planning on attending. [BoingBoing]
  • Everyone’s thinking about big butts. [Gawker]
  • Damien Hirst is now a lifestyle brand. At least, the Gagosian shop is betting on it. You can now buy official dot-inspired keychains, cufflinks, tea towels, and wall clocks. [Gagosian]
  • Picasso was trumped as 2011's top-earner at auction by a Chinese artist you've probably never heard of before. [The Huffington Post]
