We’ve got you covered with the latest #artworld activities and happenings of the past week, so you can stay informed on everything that’s been going on under the hot summer sun.

China was in the #artworld spotlight last week when a Chinese investor became Sotheby’s largest stakeholder.

If you’re an avid sports fan, photography buff, or just generally into pop culture, the Brooklyn Museum should be on your agenda.

 

The museum opened Who Shot Sports: A Photographic History, 1843 to the Present, showcasing the behind-the-scenes stars at sporting events: the photographers.

 

You may still be mourning the closing of the iconic Four Seasons Restaurant last month.

 

But collectors and regulars of the stylish restaurant bid on its furniture at an auction that surpassed sale expectations by 215 % of the original estimate. Nostalgic much?
