Artist Amalia Ulman Will Become a Model-for-Hire in a New Exhibition Held in a Very Exotic, Very Secret Location: the Dark Web

New artworks by six contemporary artists, including Amalia Ulman, David Horvitz, and Joshua Citarella, are going onto the dark web next month as part of “Time Out of Joint,” a new exhibition curated by New York-based artistic partners Eva and Franco Mattes.

The show, which is part of the online-only Yerevan Biennial, can only be accessed through a special browser. 

Worried about web safety? As far as internet activities go, getting on the dark web is about as safe as surfing Amazon (perhaps even more so, many would argue). But the location is sure to scare some people—and that’s the point. 

“One of the goals of this show is to bring people to a place they are not familiar with—even if it’s just one click away,” Eva and Franco Mattes tell Artnet News over email.

Top Trump Aide Mark Meadows Held Mask-Less Wedding for His Daughter amid COVID Restrictions: Report

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows hosted a wedding for his daughter in Atlanta in late May, with about 70 mask-less guests in attendance, despite local officials urging against such gatherings to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, according to a new report by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The previously undisclosed event underlines the extent to which the Trump administration has resisted following the basic public health tips intended to avoid infection.

The Meadows family wedding, as reported, also fueled criticism that the president’s team has ignored the guidelines numerous others had to follow.

The contagious and deadly virus, which Donald Trump has downplayed to the public, reached the Oval Office in recent days — infecting both the president and First Lady Melania Trump as well as various senior advisers, campaign staff and others.

Many of those who were sickened around

Mark Meadows held 70-person wedding in May despite Atlanta limiting gatherings to 10

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows violated the law and put dozens of people at risk at the height of the coronavirus pandemic, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

On May 31, Meadows held an indoor, maskless wedding for his daughter in Atlanta featuring about 70 guests, photos of the wedding reveal. Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp’s (R) statewide order limited gatherings to 10 people at the time, as 47,000 people had tested positive for COVID-19 and more than 2,000 people had died of it.

Photos of the wedding show a “lush scene [that] could have come from any wedding magazine — were it not taking place at the height of a global pandemic,” the Atlanta Journal-Constitution writes. Guests, including Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), gathered close together and didn’t wear masks inside the ballroom as they danced to a live band. Meadows didn’t respond to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s requests for comment,

The third edition of Women’s T20 Challenge is set to take place between November 4 and 9 in the UAE. The tournament, which the BCCI had said in August would be played during the IPL playoffs’ week, will feature a total of four matches played between three teams.

ESPNcricinfo understands that both the Indian and overseas players will arrive in the UAE by the third week of October. All the three squads would be put up at one hotel, which will be part of a bio-secure bubble. Just like the eight IPL franchises, the women’s contingent, too, will undergo a mandatory six-day quarantine at the team hotel during which tests would be carried out on days one, three and five. Once they clear all three tests, they would be allowed to start training.

It is understood that the tournament is likely to be preceded by a stipulated number of training
