How Has 2020 Impacted the Global Art Market?

How Has 2020 Impacted the Global Art Market?
The global art market is a $67 billion-a-year business and has been growing steadily in recent years, alongside the stock market and the housing market. But unlike some other markets, the COVID-19 pandemic has had less of an economic impact on the art market.
Interview of Sarah Thornton,Art Market Expert and Author :
I think we’re in the midst of a complete reevaluation of the canon, i.e., the top 50 most important artists. That’s because our sense of what’s important and our sense of the cultural landscape has shifted so dramatically. The art market is not a singular market. It is made up of thousands of artists’ markets, and while one rises, another descends.

L'étape du Tour de France 2020 est annulée

L'étape du Tour de France 2020 est annulée
Cette année, la ville de Nice devait être mise à l'honneur en organisant l'ouverture et la cloture de l'édition 2020 du Tour de France. 
Malheureusement, le départ de la 107ème édition de cette course, qui avait déjà été reporté, est maintenant annulé. 

« Les organisateurs de l'Étape du Tour de France, après avoir tenté de reprogrammer l'épreuve le 6 septembre, se voient, en accord avec la Ville de Nice, dans l'obligation d'annuler l'édition 2020. Devant les difficultés pour beaucoup de participants de se rendre disponibles à cette date, et notamment ceux, nombreux, devant venir de plusieurs pays à travers le monde, il a donc été décidé de donner rendez-vous à tous les inscrits en 2021 pour l'Étape du Tour de France qui se déroulera sur le parcours tant attendu prévu en 2020. »

Katy Perry is stunned by Tomorrowland's revival for 2020
She said in interview : "Well, it's very cool, and I always want to be cool," the pregnant pop star joked of her decision to play the event. "But really truly, I thought it was so innovative of a festival to say 'Okay, know what? F--k it. We're just going to pivot, and we're going to bring something really technically advanced and difficult, but we're going to create something beautiful out of this mess. So I really admire and respect how the festival went and did it.

Evelyn Richardson, the chief executive of the peak body for Australia live entertainment industry, said: 
“COVID-19 has caused significant damage and disruption for our industry: performing arts companies and venues closed overnight; performers, production and technical staff and crews were without work or stood down; and companies and organisations were left with no alternative sources of revenue.
Live Performance Australia, which earlier this month proposed a A$345m plan to support the arts and entertainment industry, has also welcomed the new funding measures that aim to help the sector recover over the next 12 months.

One upon a time in the west

One upon a time in the west
The composer Ennio Morricone passed away, the "genius of Italian cinema".

His music creations define the western movies production, but he has been present in almost all film genres. 
Morricone is part of the legend and is an icon in the film industry.
The emotion caused by the death of Ennio Morricone goes far beyond film music lovers. Very simply because he is perhaps the only composer identified in film music whose songs can be whistled or hummed by anyone, not just film lovers.
