Lite art news commentary


1. Damien Hirst finally sells his Skull. For the full $100 million too. Does this complete its status as artwork, or its tenure? (Previously) (But wait, there’s more!)

2. The good fight to keep the Barnes out of Philly continues. This is why Philadelphia isn’t NY’s sixth borough. Sheldon Silver would have crushed this plan quicker than you could say “tax abatement.”

3. There’s an online debate about whether auction house reporting belongs in the paper’s arts section or its business section. It belongs in the arts section.
