Art Market Monitor analyzes another top piece from the upcoming fall auctions: “Sotheby’s dropped a big bomb last night with its announcement of a major Giacometti work, “Chariot,” that it hopes can achieve a price as remarkable—or stronger—as the jaw-dropping $104m sale of the sculptor’s Walking Man to Lily Safra in 2010.” [Art Market Monitor]

Jeffrey Dietch is back and, reflective. Deborah Solomon reports: “Now that he is back in New York, he said he has no plans to open a new gallery. Instead, he hopes to organize occasional “super-exciting shows” in borrowed spaces. He is scouting for a suitably cavernous warehouse in which to install a survey of artists he plans to call “Overpop.” The show will include Cory Arcangel, Ryan Trecartin, Klara Liden, Kathryn Andrews, among others: a generation of mix-masters who are extending the spirit of Pop art into the digital realm.” [The New York Times]
