Arlene Shechet’s sculptures sold out at Pace at Frieze art fair on an otherwise quiet opening day for reported sales. The in-demand artist’s prices ranged from $90,000 to $120,000, The Art Newspaper reports.

Holly Hendry’s wall-hung sculptural works, priced from $8,100 to $18,800 at Stephen Friedman’s booth at Frieze were causing a buzz, an example of moderately priced works attracting collectors’ interest, Artnet News reports.

Tao Siqi’s depiction of bondage, asphyxiation, and other kinky activities in fluorescent yellows and reds are a talking point in Frieze New York’s Focus section for young galleries, writes ARTnews. They can be found at Capsule gallery.

Huma Bhabha's otherworldly bronze sculptures have popped up in Brooklyn Bridge Park, Time Out reports. The Public Art Fund latest commission is due to remain on view until spring 2025.

Noah Davis’ painting Untitled (Boy with Glasses) is being sold by Aryn Drake-Lee, the ex-wife of the actor and collector Jesse Williams. Post their divorce, the Davis goes on sale at Phillips, May 14, ARTnews reports in its pick of the auctions.

"‘When we get art in the collection, it’s not a transactional thing for us; it’s more “Welcome to the family” than “I paid for something and I receive something.” Swizz Beatz explains how he and his wife, Alicia Keys, are building the Dean Collection, which is now on view at the Brooklyn Museum. "
