A Spanish court has ordered that the remains of Salvador Dali be exhumed after a woman who claims to be the daughter of the world-famous artist filed a paternity claim. If the woman, identified as Pilar Abel and reportedly a psychic, is confirmed as the only child of Dali, she could be entitled to part of the huge fortune and heritage of one of the most celebrated and prolific painters of the 20th century. The Madrid court said Monday the exhumation aimed “to get samples of his remains to determine whether he is the biological father of a woman from Girona (in northeastern Spain) who filed a claim to be recognised as the daughter of the artist.” “The DNA study of the painter’s corpse is necessary due to the lack of other biological or personal remains with which to perform the comparative study,” it added. The Dali Foundation which manages the artist’s estate said in a statement it would lodge an appeal against the exhumation “in the coming days,” without giving further details.

The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art announces the global debut of the exhibition Edvard Munch: Between the Clock and the Bed, on view June 24 through October 9, 2017. Featuring approximately 45 paintings produced between the 1880s and the 1940s, with seven on view in the United States for the first time, this exhibition uses the Norwegian artist Edvard Munch’s last significant self-portrait as a starting point to reassess his entire career. Organized by SFMOMA, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and the Munch Museum, Oslo, Edvard Munch: Between the Clock and the Bed brings together Munch’s most profoundly human and technically daring compositions of love, despair, desire and death, as well as more than a dozen of his self-portraits to reveal a singular modern artist, one who is largely unknown to American audiences, and increasingly recognized as one of the foremost innovators of figurative painting in the 20th cent
Kim Thittichai is a textile artist and tutor living on the west coast of County Clare, Ireland.
Having worked through most of the traditional techniques Kim finds herself drawn to experimentation and layering technique. She created and delivered her own course entitled Experimental Textiles. What was originally written as a 1-year course, quickly developed into a 4-year course due to student encouragement, which Kim considers her greatest achievement.
In this interview, Kim describes how her introduction to a vast array of materials influenced her development and creative style, and encouraged the urge to experiment with different techniques. We learn how she has grown her artwork and why students are the key to her future.

Data storytelling is one of the best ways to create unique, original, and credible content marketing, but you need some solid data sources to start.
Good marketers are well-suited to extract and communicate great data stories because they know who they’re talking to, what interests them, what their pain points are, and how to speak to them. (That’s where data scientists often struggle.) So there’s no reason not to dive into data—unless you don’t know where to look. here is plenty of data all around, both in your company and on the online.
Monte Clark, Winsor Gallery, Gallery Jones, Macaulay & Co. Fine Art, SoMa and Chernoff Fine Art will play host as exhibitions are launched, artist talks are given, and the city is brought together to celebrate the district as a cultural cornerstone.
