NBC News: Pro-democracy campaigners and Beijing supporters scuffled on Friday, hours after Hong Kong’s leader agreed to open talks to end the deadlock.
Police tried to break up clashes in the district of Mong Kok, where demonstrators have been camped for days as part of the city’s “Umbrella Revolution.” Demonstrators are demanding the right to choose candidates in the 2017 elections.

Exploring the Contemporary Contrasts of Lee Ufan’s Work at Versailles
Last week, South Korean artist Lee Ufan unveiled a series of 10 commissioned works on the grounds of the Chateau de Versailles outside of Paris, France.
Ufan’s pieces take shape as large-scale sculptures and installations. Simple structures such as immersive rock gardens and the exhibition’s iconic polished-concrete arch stand in stark contrast to the decadent landscape of the Chateau grounds. The striking differences between the historical grounds and the exhibition works lead visitors to discover the dialogue and harmonies that can exist between objects that—at first—seem wholly dissimilar.
Ufan’s works will be on view at Chateau de Versailles until early November 2014.
