Not as good as recent years, but not exactly bad. The inaugural day of the fall auction season had nice surprises like Malevich’s Suprematist Compostion being sold for $60 million, a record for the artist. The total of the night reached $223.8 million. Read the full article in The New York Times.

Dorothy’s Gallery is organizing an exhibition / event in favor of Barack Obama with the support from Democrats both in France and in the US. Le Comité Français de Soutien à Barack Obama, comprised of 5000 members (such as Bernard Henry Levy, Duhamel, Frédéric Mitterrand, Jack Lang, Richard Serra,…) is an equal partner of the show. Several cartoonists, from the Canard Enchainé and Charlie Hebdo, will participate. The list includes Honoré, Tinious, Wolinski, Charb, Wozniak, Riss, Jul, Honoré … along with other American cartoonists. I got this information here.

Dawoud Bey – Barack Obama, 2007 30″x24″ Archival Pigment Print
It’s tomorrow: ART FOR OBAMA is an online auction of photographs to benefit the Obama Campaign. Fifty of the country’s most prominent artists and photographers have donated their work for this cause. All proceeds will be donated in strict accordance with the regulations of the Democratic National Committee and the Federal Election Commission. A good cause and, maybe, a good bargain.
