  • Do not mess with art critics; you might get sued. At least that’s what happened when Danish artist Kristian von Hornsleth pasted art critic Camilla Stockmann’s face into a pornographic collage where she’s the center of a gangbang. Those real mature antics didn’t get Hornsleth anywhere except court. Now, judges have found Hornsleth guilty of copyright infringement for using Stockmann’s image without permission.

  • Kriston Capps calls Pritzker Architecture Prize after a change.org petition launched demanding that Denise Scott Brown be retroactively recognized; the contributions she made, led to her husband to win the prize in 1991. Apparently, Mr. Pritzker has “taken it under advisement.” [Architect Magazine]
  • Gallerist writes an enormous profile on Julian Schnabel, but can’t get his ex-wife, artist David Salle, Pace Gallery’s Arnold Glimcher, Dealer Mary Boone, and a number of other friends from the 80’s to talk.

  • Anthony Huberman has been appointed Director of the CCA Wattis Institute. He fills the position recently left vacant by Jens Hoffmann, who took on a Deputy Director position at the Jewish Museum in November 2012. [e-flux]
  • Have you ever wondered who keeps on refilling Felix-Gonzalez Torres’s candy sculptures? Time Out Chicago critic Lauren Weinberg fills in the gaps. [Time Out Chicago]
  • The Marina Abramovic Doc won a Peabody Award, reports Michael Miller, the oldest award in broadcasting. She joins the ranks of Judd Apatow, Lena Dunham, Lorne Michaels, and Louie CK. [Gallerist]
