reckless guesswork, insinuations and possible inventions that have arrived at cnz have come up three zero (museo fraserrobinson, the et al. hall and the upritchard palazzo) so far in their search for an exhibitions site for the venice biennale • one of the edition of hirst dagger hearts offered for one trillion (correction: we meant to write million) dollars in nz is up for auction at phillips de pury • the new director of the new dowse is the current director of te tuhi-the mark centre for the arts • michael stevenson presented an installation (creepily prescient) on pawn broking at the frieze art fair • te papa paid more to construct the walls in the rita angus exhibition than they did for john reynolds’ work cloud, and they paid over $200,000 for that • gallery 64zero3 in christchurch and janne land in wellington are closing. any missed details, indignant denials or additions gratefully received, and the one that has the most long words, rewarded with an international edition overthenet cap.
