Here are the Bloomberg and Wall Street Journal auction season round-ups: “Len Riggio , chairman of Barnes & Noble, said he intended to bid on a few items in Christie’s sale, but rivals outpaced him. ‘I feel like I’m surrounded by gladiators in this shiny big arena,’ he said. ‘Everyone wants to put their money somewhere, but what are these guys going to do, buy another house or keep $3 billion in the bank? No, they all want to put a little bit in art.'” [The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg]

Activists have been quick to save art from the Hong Kong protests. “A new group — Umbrella Movement Art Preservation, or UMAP — has ‘rescue team members’ on the ground, armed with cellphones and ready to mobilize volunteers to evacuate art on short notice. They have received offers of help from sympathetic truck drivers and about a dozen private galleries.” [The New York Times]
