    Gauguin’s Molars?

    Archaeologists have found what may be Paul Gauguin’s molars, the Canberra Times reports. The four rotten teeth were discovered at the bottom of a well that Gauguin built on Hiva Oa, on one of the Marquesas Islands in the Pacific Ocean. (Artinfo, December 4, 2007)

    Miami Satellites

    There is no official count, but word is more than 20 fairs have sprung up around this year’s Art Basel Miami Beach, quite possibly the biggest tally ever for satellite offerings. A good chunk of those are first-timers in Miami—ranging from Art MB, a new incarnation of SeaFair, the art fair on a colossal, multi-million dollar yacht that has been sailing the high seas since September, to Takashi Murakami’s intrepid GEISAI Miami, featuring artists without gallery representation—and the sheer number of newcomers has taken even seasoned Miami participants by surprise.
