Who are the young artists and entrepreneurs disrupting the art world? Arts & Collections reveals some of the most exciting innovators shaking up the scene today  For centuries, the art world has been rigidly organised, with galleries, auction houses and museums controlling the way art is promoted, and young artists struggling to break through or to make a living out of their work.  All that now seems to be changing. With the development of the...

Singer Debbie Harry is 75 next year, and with the launch of her autobiography Face It comes a chance to assess the artistic iconography of the ultimate ‘80s rock chick From Andy Warhol to H.R. Giger, singer Debbie Harry’s punky look has been co-opted by the art world as iconic of the glossy, perhaps superficial 1980s. Now nearing 75 years of age and still working as a singer and actress, Harry has produced her first...
