K11 Art Mall in Shanghai

Those profits go to the dealers, the auction houses, and the galleries. The artists that created the works: they can't claim a dime of what they s... [more]

“There’s like 20 RCMP officers flooding my... [more]

She was a rarity in her time, both as a woman in an art world still largely dominated by men and as an artist eschewing the gallery for on-site installations. Over her fif... [more]
