Ali The Greatest, Again

February 13, 2020

Christie’s in London held a Contemporary sale this week, and the total sale was a quarter lower than last year’s similar show.  The high point was an Andy Warhol painting of Muhammad Ali which fetched $6.46 million.

While the total ($72.8 million) was a disappointment, a number of artists scored auction records, including Jordan Casteel and Gunther Forg.

Britannia Renewal Update

February 13, 2020

For those who have been following the seemingly-endless Renewal process at Britannia, an RFP has now been released

“seeking professional architectural services required to implement the Britannia Renewal Master Plan that include rezoning the 18-acre integrated Britannia Community Services Centre, Britannia Secondary School, and Britannia Elementary Community School site (the “Site”), and preparing a detailed functional program for Building 1, which includes a swimming pool, recreation spaces, childcare, and non-market housing.”

Submission date is 12th March, but I am sure it will be a while before we hear who has won the bid.
