  • Well-known horrible person George Zimmerman is selling his personal artwork on eBay … bidding has nearly topped $100,000. (Thanks, Joseph Beuys, for the constant reminder that anyone and everyone can be an artist.) [Vanity Fair]
  • Film Comment gives us their Top 50 films of the year. 2013: This year has given me just enough time to see two of these films. It’s been a year of busy blogging. [Film Comment]
  • WELL, THIS WAS UNEXPECTED: Detroit’s bankruptcy ruling will be appealed. [Detroit Free Press]

  • Is the Internet like a “stream” or a wealth of “pages”? #metaphorproblems [The Atlantic]
  • What doth plague the House of Sotheby’s? Less than a full rotation of the moon has gone by since Sotheby’s Head of Contemporary Art Tobias Meyer left under a cloudy resignation. Perhaps to shed its former woes, new changes are abreast; Sotheby’s has hired Domenico De Sole (from luxury fashion retailers Tom Ford and Gucci) as the auction house’s Lead Independent Director. [Art Market Monitor]
  • New publication “The Artist as Curator” claims the history of artists is an “understudied phenomenon.” Really? Nobody else cared to write or talk about this until now? [The Artist as Curator]
