BEST
1. The self-described “nude avatar of self-exposure” Milo Moiré struck again, this time at the NRW-Forum in Düsseldorf.

2. Keep your eyes peeled for these gems at the booths of Sprüth Magers, David Zwirner, and Marian Goodman during Frieze London.

3. Ai Weiwei and Anish Kapoor joined forces, raised their middle fingers on Instagram, and called for a protest walk in support of refugees.

4. The National Museum of Women in the Arts is ready to take on gender parity in the art world with a conversation series on artists and social change.

5. A few of our favorite—and least favorite—things about attending gallery openings. (Free wine: Whoo! No bathrooms: Boo.)

WORST
1. John Chamberlain‘s 23-year-old artist stepdaughter Phoebe Fairweather fell to her death this week.

2. More updates on Yves Bouvier and the case of the missing trove of Picasso works.

3. Franz West‘s archive filed suit against Gagosian Gallery over an exhibition of “unauthorized” chairs.

4. Alfred Taubman‘s widow, Judy Taubman, was locked out of a London apartment by her stepchildren after to a dispute over two six-figure paintings.

5. In a dubious new approach to friend-making, talent agent Joshua Roth went on record to talk smack about the art world.
