Bombs explode, nations rage and religions clash daily in the Middle East. For many outsiders, the steady drip-feed of violent images from places such as Gaza and Iraq has reduced the region to a trope of carnage and conflict. A new exhibition has opened here in the British capital with the hope of offering an alternate vision: the Middle East as a source of lively, stimulating contemporary art -- informed by conflict, certainly, but not consumed by it.

It isn't often -- or ever, actually -- that an art gallery owner becomes the subject of online and tabloid gossip for his or her love life. But then few art-world denizens have led a life as interesting as Charles Saatchi, the British advertising executive turned collector and gallery overlord. Saatchi's glamorous lifestyle became even more glamorous when he married celebrity chef Nigella Lawson in 2003.

The two were the star attractions at the Rover British Fashion Awards, held for the first time since 1989 during London Fashion Week. "They are the fashion Oscars," gushed an optimistic Nicholas Coleridge, the British Fashion Council chairman, surveying the red-carpet scene at Battersea Park, where the awards show was held Tuesday night.

On May 24 at China's Hong Kong Convention Center an outfit called Intelligence Squared will host a formal debate during the debut of the newest spinoff of the Art Basel franchise of international art fairs. The motion under consideration will be: "The Market Is the Best Judge of Art's Quality. " Honest. That's the topic for debate. I figure the program harbors two, maybe three minutes of chat -- tops. The panel is a retread of a 2011 program held at London's Saatchi Gallery.
