为了阻止“非法”旅游,莫斯科的Treykov画廊采取了一些颇为奥威尔式的措施:有效禁止所有参观者讨论展出的艺术品。作为对未经认证的旅游团进行新一轮活动的一部分,画廊警卫一直在攻击无辜的游客——一位带着学生参观Vasily Vereshchagin展览的历史教授抱怨说,警卫告诉他“一到20人的团体”。获得参观美术馆的特殊许可。历史学家们非常愤怒,他们对俄罗斯文化部提出了一个公开的控诉,说画廊里没有人能向他们解释“一个人的团体”意味着什么。

艾未未为科罗拉多州阿斯彭的顶级艺术收藏家发表了更多他的标志性威威主义。 这位中国艺术家首先讲述了最近前往孟加拉国难民营的一次旅行:“我从来没有见过一群如此纯洁的人......他们需要帮助,但他们甚至没有要求这样做”。 然后他敦促人群“少知道,多关心!”而且神秘地说,艺术家补充说:“与其他牛肉不同的是,我是一头牛”。

意大利警方发现一名被盗的鲁本斯和雷诺阿在一名骗子扮成犹太教教士的抢劫案中被捕。这起诈骗案涉及至少八名不同的骗子,其中至少有一人声称不怀疑艺术品经销商,他是一位具有外交豁免权的犹太犹太教教士,并愿意为这幅画捐献欧元2600万欧元。

凯特·布兰切特(Cate Blanchett)正在准备她最好的玛丽娜·阿布拉莫维奇(MarinaAbramović)的印象,为一个新的艺术世 国际金融公司讽刺系列剧“现在的纪录片”的第三季将集中在一个充分利用塞尔维亚表演艺术家的角色。 布兰切特将扮演伊莎贝拉·巴塔,她“感到有压力要表现自己的生活”,并将与一位前情人重聚,“这位艺术世界的臭名昭着的挑衅者。”凯特对艺术世界巨星的描绘让她做到了 所有:表演艺术,喜剧,甚至她自己的特技,“国际金融公司总经理Blake Callaway声称。 布兰切特不会缺乏鼓舞人心的材料,但我们可能会建议这位71岁的艺术家可怕的最新项目:用一百万伏特给自己充电,并创造一个自己喷出自己鲜血的玻璃喷泉。

In a bid to stop ‘illegal’ tours, Moscow’s State Tretyakov Gallery has resorted to some rather Orwellian measures: effectively banning all visitors from discussing the artworks on display. As part of a new campaign to clamp down on uncertified tour groups, the gallery guards have been pouncing on innocent visitors – one history professor who was taking his students around the Vasily Vereshchagin exhibition complained that the guards told him that ‘groups of one to 20 people’ needed special permission to visit the gallery. The historians were so enraged that they filed a public complaint with Russia’s Culture Ministry, saying that nobody at the gallery could explain to them what a ‘one-person group’ meant.

Ai Weiwei produced more of his signature Weiwei-isms for a talk for top art collectors in Aspen, Colorado. The Chinese artist began by recounting a recent trip to a refugee camp in Bangladesh: ‘I’ve never met a group of people so pure […] They need help, but they’re not even asking for that’. Then he urged the crowd to ‘know less, care more!’ And rather mysteriously, the artist added: ‘I am a cow, rather than different cuts of meat’.

Italian police have discovered a stolen Rubens and Renoir following a heist in which a con artist posed as a rabbi. The scam involved at least eight different con artists – of which at least one claimed to unsuspecting art dealers that he was a Jewish rabbi with diplomatic immunity, and was willing to part with EUR€26 million for the paintings.

And Cate Blanchett is preparing her best Marina Abramović impression, for a new art world mockumentary. The third season of IFC’s satirical series ‘Documentary Now!’ will focus on a character which heavily draws on the Serbian performance artist. Blanchett will play Izabella Barta ‘who feels pressured to put on the show of her life’, and will reunite with a former lover, ‘an infamous provocateur of the art world.’ ‘Cate’s portrayal of an art-world superstar has her doing it all: performance art, comedy, and even her own stunts,’ IFC general manager Blake Callaway claimed. Blanchett won’t be short of inspiring material, but may we suggest the 71-year-old artist’s terrifying latest project: electrifying herself with one million volts, and creating a glass fountain of herself spouting her own blood.
