Entering mid February and Valentines just around the corner, MCA / Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago to introduce discount tickets to people affected by the gender pay gap; Burger King appropriates footage from Jørgen Leth’s 66 Scenes From America (1982) of Andy Warhol eating a burger, and turns it into a TV commercial; For the 30th anniversary of Salvador Dalí’s death coming in April, The Dalí Museum in St Petersburg, Florida unveils a computerized AI version of the surrealist painter; Arts Council England publishes ‘No-Deal’ Brexit Guide for Arts Organizations as talks get dramatic for the final stretch before the schedule UK exit from the European Union; and artist Semple to produce the pigment Black 3.0, “the blackest and mattest paint in the known universe,” just shy of the military grade substance made from carbon nanotubes licensed as Vantablack – could be a new palette pour the Virginia politicians in the U.S.
