In the catalogs of Christie's, Sotheby's and Phillips de Pury's upcoming Contemporary & Post-War auctions (May 11-13) are pieces by a number of artists whose work has previously graced the album covers of Sonic Youth. Meaning that the ardent fan can fill out his or her Sonic Youth rarities collection for a little less than $11 million. Follow the links to register for your paddle.
You will be hearing more on this in the days to come! For now, let's just say that you should pay a visit to this David Hockney painting at Christie's. It has been hidden away in Betty Freeman's kitchen in Los Angeles since the early 60s. And it will be sold on May 13, most likely to a major institution and for a world record for Hockney. But you can see it for free at 20 Rockefeller Plaza in New York City every day until then! It is awesome.
