The Headlines
FAIR PLAY.  A lucky break for the 150 dealers participating in the 2021 edition of  Art Cologne , which runs next month: They will get  a 34 percent reduction  in the cost of their booths, the  Art Newspaper  reports. The price cut comes as a result of funding from a German government program aimed at ameliorating the financial hardship that various cultural entities have suffered as a result of the pandemic. Fair organizers decided to distribute the money they received, in full, to the exhibitors. In other fair business,  FIAC  is running in Paris, and  ARTnews  has picked  the best booths . Gallerists at such events tend to talk politely and vaguely about the market, and so it was a surprise to see  David Zwirner  circulate a quote on opening day that Wall   Street Journal  journo  Kelly Crow   shared on Twitter : “I am a little disappointed, after the vibrancy of London”—where  Frieze  just ran—“with sales at FIAC. Paris is such a great city for a fair, but FIAC has tended to underperform for us compared with other major fairs.”
A FRIDAY ARTIST BLOTTER:  In the  Guardian ,  Ai Weiwei   penned an essay  remembering the public interest lawyer-turned-film producer  Diane Weyermann , who died  earlier this month . Her passing is “like a bridge of hope and imagination washed away in the storm,” Ai writes.  Tino Sehgal   is staging two of his wily performance works  as part of a show at  Tai Kwun  in Hong Kong, per the  South China Morning Post .  Cassils   got the profile treatment  in the  New York Times , in conjunction with the premiere of their first dance piece at the  HOME  arts center in Manchester, England. And  Theaster Gates , who has a show on now at the  Whitechapel Gallery  in London, chatted with the  Guardian  about  his multifarious practice . “I want to participate in all levels of culture-making, of society-building, of nation-building,” he said.
The Digest
Architect  Alan Lapidus , a designer of over-the-top casinos and hotels, like  Caesar’s Palace  in Las Vegas and the  Trump Plaza  in Atlantic City, New Jersey, has died at 85.  [The New York Times]
The  National Gallery of Art  in Washington, D.C., purchased a 1967 work from  Faith Ringgold ’s classic “American People” series; it is the first painting by the artist to enter its collection. A Ringgold retrospective runs at  Glenstone  in Potomac, Maryland, through this Sunday.  [Press Release/National Gallery of Art]
It’s a double  David Zwirner  day for “Breakfast”: The dealer is in the enviable position of having on his hands eight recently rediscovered watercolors by  Hilma af Klint ,  whose work is almost entirely held by her namesake foundation. He is selling only to institutional buyers. The pieces go on view next month at his Upper East Side gallery.  [Artnet News]
The  Art Institute of Chicago ’s plan to disband its volunteer docent program to pursue a new model aimed at community engagement has become a flashpoint in the culture wars. “Clearly we were not prepared for this to become a discussion of identity politics,”  James Rondeau , the museum’s director, said.  [The New York Times]
Architect  David Adjaye  has released his designs for a dramatic Manhattan skyscraper— Affirmation Tower , it’s called—that grows in size as it rises. If built, it would be the second-tallest building in the city, and the first building in the five boroughs from a team of Black architects, developers, lenders, and builders, according to the group.  [Robb Report]
Scottish writer  Ali Smith ’s upcoming novel,  Companion Piece  (2022), sports a cover with a piece by  David Hockney , continuing a string of Smith’s books that  the artist’s work has adorned  over the past decade.  [Simon Prosser/Twitter]
The Kicker
A LOT OF BONES.  At the  Drouot  auction house in Paris on Thursday,  the largest triceratops skeleton ever discovered sold  for €6.6 million, which is about $7.67 million (or just under half the  most ever paid  for a  KAWS  painting), the  Associated Press  reports. The 66-million-year-old dinosaur, known as  Big John  , was found in South Dakota seven years ago. “The overall quality of Big John really deserved this price,” one paleontology told the news agency. The winning bidder was an anonymous American who had a representative on hand to share that he is  “absolutely thrilled with the idea of being able to bring a piece like this to his personal use.”   [Associated Press] shares always this Contents with License.
