I. M. Pei  Four Seasons Hotel
This entrance / lobby is my favorite place to be.
I.M. Pei, -everything he does is brilliant.

Rising over Manhattan's premier shopping and business district, between Park and Madison Avenues, the I.M. Pei-designed Four Seasons features stunning views and gracious style – a remarkable luxury experience, even by New York standards.

MoMa & PS1 survey : Olafur Eliasson

Link: http://www.nytimes.com/slideshow/2008/04/17/arts/2008418elia2_index.htm

MoMa & PS1 survey : Olafur Eliasson
MoMa will have a first museum survey of Olafur Eliasson. I like this kind of large scale installations that speak to your subconscious.
The work above is his 'Take Your Time' a new piece at P.S. 1, made for the show, consists of a huge, tilted, disc-shaped mirror suspended horizontally from a gallery ceiling. The mirror is rotating very slowly with a subtly undulating motion that causes the room itself feel warped and unstable.

Olafur Eliasson's works are large-scale installations, sculptures, and photographs that recreate the landscape and atmosphere in his native Iceland and it recontextualizes elements such as light, water, ice, fog, stone, and moss to create unique situations that shift the viewer’s perception of place and self.

Satyagraha : Philip Glass's Met Opera

Link: http://www.metoperafamily.org/metopera/season/production.aspx?id=9251

Satyagraha : Philip Glass's Met Opera
I love this kind of true history non fiction and Opera, also Philip Glass..
Opera is a composite art form. I am totally curious..

Philip Glass's landmark 1980 work, set to text from the ancient Sanskrit scripture the Bhagavad Gita, is a moving account of Mahatma Gandhi's formative experiences in South Africa, which transformed him into a great leader. For the opera’s Met premiere, director Phelim McDermott and designer Julian Crouch (artistic directors of London’s provocative Improbable theater company) use adventurous, improvisational puppetry, achieved by the Skills Ensemble, a brilliant team of aerialists, to illuminate this formative period in Gandhi’s life and work. Tenor Richard Croft (pictured) brings his crystalline timbre and musical finesse to Glass’s gently unfolding, chant-like music.

An amazing new young director, Jason Kohn who won the Sundance Film Festival last year, releases his DVD.
this is truly one of the best film I have ever seen. Studied under Errol Morris, the way he unfolds the realities of political corruption of Brazil is spellbounding. the story is academic, he mixed up story like an spider web, but it come together brilliantly in the end. and the use of the subject are lyrical, and every single of scenes of this film becomes cinematography.
the movie also won the cinematography and the best director at Sundance film festival in 2007. I went to Utah to support this film.
because this is an truly amazing film. the best of best. dvd is available april 8th, I actually have witnessed this film making many times, from the making, editing to the completion, and the finished piece is truly amazing, I am definitely buying this DVD.

COMTEMPT: Godard

Link: http://www.filmforum.org/films/contemptposter.html

COMTEMPT: Godard
 It is now playing at Film forum in NY. and this is the poster made for it... I liked the illustration.
As a lover of Godard film and Bridit Bardot,
this is one of my most favorite movies at all time.
Thirty years later,
Godard's most romantic film is at once brilliant, romantic and genuinely tragic.
the defining moments of modernist filmmaking, dazzling, pop-art
refurbished colors, the richest, complete and satisfying film which strikes the deepest human chords --  Comtempt-- the Romance, Art, film, Color, Sea, God, Woman, Tragidy, Music. Architecture ---it got everything perfect.   Capri is beautiful.

Takashi Murakami : Brooklyn Museum

Takashi Murakami : Brooklyn Museum
The exhibition © MURAKAMI April 5–July 13, 2008

I like Takashi Murakami's earlier work. thus I am excited to see this show at the Brooklyn Museum.
the show explores the self-reflexive nature of Murakami’s oeuvre by focusing on earlier work produced between 1992 and 2000 in which the artist attempts to explore his own reality through an investigation of branding and identity, as well as through self-portraiture created since 2000.
Two works examining these subjects were a part of a group show, My Reality: Contemporary Art and the Culture of Japanese Animation, presented at the Brooklyn Museum in 2001.
