There is never any shortage of art-related events, exhibits as well as installations from around the world. In fact, there are approximately 6,500 art dealers and galleries in the United states alone coupled with annual festivals in both major cities and local neighborhoods. It’s hard to keep count of all the goings-on in the art industry. To help you out, we rounded up some of the most fascinating art stories that recently popped up in the past week. From Salvador Dalí‘s body to be exhumed in Spain to an entire exhibit dedicated to fashion darling Kate Moss, check out our list below.

This recent story is perhaps even more surreal than any Dalí painting. In a June 20 ruling, a Spanish psychic has recently won the right to have the corpse of the legendary artist exhumed following a paternity suit. The case goes back to March 2015 when tarot card reader/astrologist Pilar Abel claimed to be Dalí’s daughter. The exhumation is to help with DNA tests to prove whether or not Abel is telling the truth. If her claim rings true then she can own a hefty portion of Dalí’s estate. According to BBC, the exhumation may happen as early as next month.

Now, “Trace” and all of the 176 portraits that make up the series has been moved to the museum’s second-level gallery space.
