It's a big week in the New York salerooms: Scott Reyburn, art market expert for The Art Newspaper and The New York Times, discusses the big sales and notable trends at Christie’s and Sotheby’s New York auctions. Meanwhile, as museums in England get ready to open for the first time in five months, we talk to Heather Phillipson about her new exhibition in the Duveen Galleries at Tate Britain.

And in this episode’s Work of the Week, to mark the centenary of the birth of the German artist Joseph Beuys, we talk to the artist duo Heather Ackroyd and Dan Harvey about Beuys’s seminal late work 7000 Oaks and their response to it, Beuys’ Acorns.
