As George Michael's collection of contemporary art, dominated by Young British Artists, goes under the hammer in London, we speak to Paola Saracino Fendi from Christie's about the collection and then report on the sale immediately after the final fall of the gavel. What does it tell us about the YBA market and the pull of celebrity auctions?

Plus, we speak to the artist Shezad Dawood about Encroachments, his new installation for the Sharjah Biennial, featuring a virtual reality work.
