Art Outlook: 6 February

6 February 2014

Some of the stories, debates and discussions we’ve spotted this week

Fear of Fakes

There’s been a flurry of fakes in the news this week. First, the Chagall Committee threatened to burn one; now a German collector is threatening not to pay for a Giorgio de Chirico painting because of a worrying note in the catalogue raisonné

Legal Wrangles

Too many professionals in the art world are confused and misinformed about copyright, according to the College Art Association. Hyperallergic picked up on the story, and looked more widely at the legal minefield that is the art world today

Women in Art

Girls star Jemima Kirke spoke out on Tate’s website about the marginalisation of women in art, while Tom Mashberg told the rather neglected story of the Monuments Women in the New York Times

Expansion Plans

MoMA came under fire for its plans to demolish the Folk Art Museum this week, and in London, the Southbank Centre announced that its expansion plans had been put on hold after the Mayor intervened to save the skatepark

The notorious fake Chagall painting that could be destroyed by the Chagall Committee in France
