MULTIMEDIA ARTIST: Ed Ruscha was the biggest draw last week at the contemporary-arts auctions in London, with his painting “That Was Then This Is Now” selling for $1.1 million. For those who can’t afford that steep price tag, a more affordable option is in the works: Ruscha has shot the new cover of TAR magazine. The Californian artist photographed actor Viggo Mortensen, and it marks the first time Ruscha has created a cover for a print media outlet. Past covers of TAR were created by Julian Schnabel and Damien Hirst. Inside the issue, which hits newsstands in October, contributors will include Mario Sorrenti, as well as Laura and Kate Mulleavy of Rodarte and Miranda July, who collaborated for a fashion portfolio. — Amy Wicks
