This week, as Frieze New York takes place at The Shed in Hudson Yards, and we come to the end of two weeks of huge auction sales, we talk to The Art Newspaper’s editor in the Americas, Ben Sutton, about the New York art market.
Nicholas Fox Weber, the executive director of the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation, tells us about Bët-bi, a new museum the foundation hopes to open in Senegal in 2025, with a building designed by Mariam Issoufou Kamara, the Niger-based architect.
And in this episode’s Work of the Week, Annabel Gallop, one of the co-curators of Gold, a new exhibition at the British Library in London, discusses a shimmering golden farman, or decree, from Shah ’Alam II, issued to a British woman, Sophia Plowden, in India in 1789.
