Build your own smartwatch with Blocks, the Project Ara of wearables.

Can't find a classy smartwatch with all the features you really want? No problem, says Blocks Wearables. Build one instead.

The base model of the modular smartwatch comes with a circular display and runs on a slightly modified version of Google's Android 5.0 Lollipop (though it'll work in conjunction with both Android and Apple's iOS phones), powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset. Baked-in GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth means you'll be able to view smartphone notifications and track your fitness. You can also bark out voice commands.
The modular smartwatch design lets you add extra battery life, GPS, NFC payments and more to your wearable.

Qatar has launched an international competition to find an architect to build what it's calling the Art Mill—a vast flour mill and its grain silos—into an art complex that will house the growing collections of the country’s museums, according to the Art Newspaper’s Javier Pes. A conservation center and museum storage, as well as education, conference, and event space, will also be part of the project. According to the competition brief, the Art Mill will measure over 800,000 square feet.

The artist had her first sale at the age of 89. In her 90s, her work became part of the permanent collections of MoMA, the Hirshhorn, and Tate Modern. After 60 years of honing and practicing her craft, creating brilliantly-colored and ever more minimal and pure geometric abstractions, Herrera is finally receiving her due in critical, institutional and collecting circles alike (see Imi Knoebel, Marianne Vitale, and Carmen Herrera Among Robust Sales at Armory Show 2014 and Sales Heat Up at Frieze New York).
Carmen Herrera's first sale was at 89 years old. At 100, the Cuban-born, Manhattan-based artist is still going strong.

The Bass Museum of Art will give the Black Archives History and Research Foundation of South Florida a gift of almost 400 works of art by Miami artist Purvis Young. Young is represented in the collection of the Smithsonian Institute, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the High Museum of Art, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. He was a self-taught artist whose paintings depicted scenes from African-American and urban life.

It’s not fair to call the entire art world a private club, but “clubby” is at least an accurate description of it, so much so that a sub-economy has sprung up in the last five years in order to provide outsiders with “access” to this apparently mysterious underworld. Artsy, “a resource for art collection and education,” has a “mission” “to make all the world’s art accessible to anyone with an Internet connection.” Paddle8, “the auction house for the 21st-century collector,” gives “a global community of passionate collectors unprecedented access to online auctions of high-caliber inventory.” Artspace wants “to make it easy for you to discover and collect fine art from renowned artists, galleries, and cultural institutions worldwide,” and subscribers to its newsletter “instantly gain” “insider access to special offers and private art events.”
