reckless guesswork, insinuations and possible inventions that have turned up in otn's email: rumblings at art + object that might end up as art + art • apparently the beta version of john hurrell’s eyecontact website has now been seen by everyone in new zealand • rumoured walters prize finalist saskia leek has named her daughter agatha joining other art babies may and linus • looks like te papa's new ceo michael houlihan is going to be a collections guy • another new dealer gallery opening in wellington this one by ex ivan anthony staffer robert heald • hamish mckay has given openings the elbow • the best bit of art in auckland art gallery's shed 6 is a marlin head with chain in the room opposite the back door • one walters prize finalist was surprised to be unfinalised at the last moment • cnz are not restructuring, just changing everything • any missed details, changes to outright lies, indignant denials or embellishments gratefully received and the best of them rewarded with one of our new otn badges featuring chola the painting horse.
