unvarnished facts, reckless guesswork, insinuations and possible inventions that have arrived at overthenet: the govett-brewster has gone off shore to get its new director • also from off shore a curator from germany has arrived with his family to take the g-b curator job • hopkinson mossman has scored a direct hit with 70 percent of the artists in the latest city gallery exhibition coming from their list • artists showing in the university of auckland’s porn show were each paid a fee of $5,000 • the director of the aag attended the sydney art fair last weekend and put an option on two works by an nz artist on show in the booth of an australian gallery • the te papa aztec exhibition that was looking like a no go has been saved at the last moment and will go ahead as planned • as of this morning christchurch needs only $7,000 to secure $400,000 via pledges and dollar-for-dollar support to help pay for michael parekowhai’s bull on a piano • any missed details, indignant denials or additions gratefully received, and any that makes us laugh out loud will be suitably rewarded.
