India’s modern art moment

January 30, 2015

India’s biggest art fair kicked off this week in New Delhi, where contemporary artists showcased works that are growing in value on the global market. A Christie’s auction there in December generated $12 million. The India Art Fair draws 100,000 visitors every year, who pay markedly less for admission than other renowned art shows, with tickets around $6. A replica of Mumbai’s train station by artist  T V Santhosh is tilted on its side and displaying time pieces counting down times.

If you already resent hotels charging high rates for internet access, here’s some good news from the FCC. It issued a warning to hotel groups that they are breaking the law if they block guests’ hot spots. One group is already paying the price. Marriott International has agreed to pay a $600,000 penalty for obstructing guests’ personal wi-fi hot spots at its Gaylord Opryland Hotel & Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee.
